We raised enough money to give three Alumni Scholarships in 2023 to very deserving students. In recognition of their privacy, we can no longer share details but believe me, these students are amazing, not only in over coming the challenges they faced but in excelling in their academic and leadership skills.

Many of the Scholarship contributions were donated to honor staff, classmates and family members. We received donations in honor of recently deceased staff members Duncan MacSwain, Phil Roark, Charlie Feeney, Tino Lavezzo and Sallie Ward. Gordon Van Zee, Glenda Gentry and "the amazing Mr. Medogovich" also received recognition and are still with us. Miriam Jobrani '86, Rick Sims '61 and Sandy Minutoli Weitzel '63 received memorial tributes. A generous donation in honor of Gary Kuhn '75 was made. Lou Larson '69 and Polly Conner were also recognized. Thank you again for your generosity! Donor List

Donations must be submitted by March 1, 2024 so that we will know how much and how many scholarships we can offer.There is no doubt that there are many needy students at Redwood who appreciate the opportunities that a scholarship will give them to pursue their dreams with further education.

This year 2023 three Alumni Scholarships, each over $3000 will be given to deserving students.  Thank you for making this possible. All scholarships are based on need but these three recipients also are recognized for merit. Two are first generation students to go to college, one to MIT and the other to San Jose State. The third recipient will be going to Cornell.

The recipient of the Wilkinson Scholarship is another first generation student planning to study Immigration Law, the field that Bill Wilkinson pursued when he left teaching.

Each spring the Redwood Alumni Association gives a $2500 scholarship to a deserving student. We need your support to keep this tradition alive, now more than ever. Please consider contributing $25 or more by April 1, 2023, to this wonderful cause and help a student reach his/her dreams. You may donate to honor a former teacher, staff member, or classmate and we will notify them.

Redwood alum, Jed Bullard ‘66, has made a generous donation establishing the five-year (2021-2025) Bill Wilkinson Scholarship for a needy student. Sadly, Bill (Mr.  Wilkinson to most of you) former teacher and administrator, passed away in 2021. If you would like to add your contribution in Bill’s honor to this scholarship, you can use the link or address at the top of the page. Be sure to mention ... In honor of Bill Wilkinsonobituary


Unfortunately, there was a new 2022 Redwood Administration policy that prohibits us from naming scholarship recipients or giving any information about them. We did give an Alumni Scholarship and Wilkinson scholarship to several deserving students. We appreciate your continued support.

PRIOR SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS: The first Alumni Scholarship of $2500 was given to Ingrid Sousa '14 who attends UC Santa Cruz and is studying pre-med. The 2015 recipient is Mia Poyner '15, the daughter of Alum George Poyner '68, who is attending USC to study human biology. The 2016 recipient was Kylie Kvam '16, daughter of Alum Laura Crunelle Kvam '83, who will attend Cabrillo College to play Volleyball and pursue a career as a Sports Agent for female athletes. The 2017 recipient is Zachary Lopez Brenner '17 off to study Rocket Science at UCSB. He is also the son of an alum. In 2018, the Alumni Scholarship went to Talia Fleishman '18, daughter and granddaughter of alumni to study Art Therapy at NYU, and a special scholarship from the class of 1967 went to Nicole Fazzari '18 studying nursing at Arizona State. The 2019 Alumni Scholarship went to Sydney Hilbush '19 who will be attending UC Berkeley this fall. The 2020 scholarship went to Lucy Berry '20 who went to Texas Christian University in Fort Worth to study Chemistry, actually neuro-chemistry. In 2021, Ryan Barbosa went on to study politics at St. Mary's, Dante Luis went to Rensselaer Polytechnic to pursue studies in technology, and Saidy Reyes, the first recipient of the Wilkinson Scholarship went to UC Davis to study landscape architecture.

Don Kreps, the founding Principal of Redwood High School, and his wife Eileen, also an educator, had a profound impact on the high standard of education in Marin County. They are no longer with us but have left a generous donation of $100,000 to Redwood teachers to be used over a ten-year period. We all know that the support and enrichment of teachers is key to an excellent education. A GIANT thank you to Monica Kreps Sevy ‘78 and Dan Kreps ‘66 (representing the family,) who have been working with Principal David Sondheim to make this happen.
