Redwood Lip Dub 2023

Link to Redwood Construction


We may be setting our clocks back an hour on November 4th, but this photo will set you back 65 years! Redwood really was built in the middle of a marsh with its only entrance on Williams Avenue.There was no quad, amphitheater, back parking lot, CEA, Moody fields, swimming pool or other athletic facilities, and certainly no technology...some of you will remember film strips and reel to reel movies in the classroom? And black boards with chalk and erasers? And a library reference room with a card catalog and filled with encyclopedia?

Redwood opened to its first students in 1958 It was supposed to be called Licatuit, after an Indian princess, but that was challenged and Redwood emerged as the official name, even though redwood trees didn't and couldn't grow in the marshy area. A lot has changed over the years. There were over 2700 students at its peak in the '70s. Many new facilities have been added and many need to be updated. The upcoming bond issue hopes to address that. Please vote YES! Redwood is still a school with many opportunities, excellent teachers and stellar students who will make a difference in the world.

We are very excited to introduce the 2024 inductees into the Avenue of Giants!

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

We have lost one of the original Giants. Al Endriss passed away on Tuesday, November 7 at the age of 95. He lived life to the fullest until his last days. He even attended a luncheon in his honor hosted by many of his former students just a few weeks ago. Al arrived at Redwood in 1959 and quickly became a legend. He was known as Mr. Spirit, dressed in his red sports jacket and leading the marching band through the hallways to rallys and games. His enthusiasm for sports and athletes was genuine. His impact on everyone he coached, taught & mentored will last long beyond his life. He is survived by his wife of 69 years Jackie, his children Matt, Mark and Nicole and their families, and legions of student athletes that he has nurtured over the years.


It is with great sadness that I share the passing of another Redwood Giant, Gary Holbrook, a beloved Redwood Counselor from the late 60s through mid 80s. Gary was a compassionate counselor who guided many students through years of teen angst to a variety of college and career paths. Many of those students have maintained contact with him over the years.Gary was always upbeat and positive, even during recent medical issues. He loved life and made everyone he met feel special. Gary leaves behind his husband/partner of over 45 years Randy Baily and a large group of friends here in the Bay Area as well as in Palm Springs.


Kentfield and Greenbrae Alumni, and history buffs everywhere… the Kentfield Greenbrae Historical Society (KGHS) recently made a major purchase to save a piece Kentfield History for the community. This 1871 painting of Ross Landing (now Kentfield) by Joseph Lee recently came up for auction in Chicago… what was it doing there?

Of course you recognize Mount Tam with College Avenue crossing the Corte Madera Creek and what would later become Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, heading toward Ross. Kentfield Corners with several buildings is in the foreground with the grounds of College of Marin in the center of the painting. If you would like to help us keep this beautiful painting in Marin where it belongs, please consider a donation to the KGHS at It will soon be displayed for those interested in seeing it in person. You can also visit our Gallery in Bon Air to see an high quality replica.

I need help to find family and friends of Todd Norris, Tom Poppin and Robin Williams, all graduated in 1969. We were teammates in 1969 on the Redwood High School track team, setting the mile relay record for the school that year, and it remains the school record to this day! The relay team was selected to be inducted into the Redwood Athletic Hall of Fame for this milestone achievement. Unfortunately, all three men are deceased. If anyone is related to them or can help me find living relatives or close friends, please contact me. I want their wives, ex-wives, children and friends to know these former athletes are being honored next year. My desire is for their families and friends to know their accomplishments and to attend the RAFOF induction ceremony.
Any information would be helpful. Please contact:
Tom Estudillo
Thank you very much.
