REDWOOD GRADUATES ON FOOTBALL FIELD JUNE 11
What a year this has been for Redwood students! They've been back on campus for six weeks. Graduation will take place on June 11 on the Troppmann Football Field. Graduates and guests can spread out and keep social distances as California doesn't officially open up until June 15. No matter how the school year went, the students and staff excelled at making an outstanding education their top priority. Charlotte DeForrest, current BARK Journalism student wrote a wonderful article on the history of Redwood's Graduations...
Breaking Down the History of Redwood Graduations.

 

ALUMNI AND WILKINSON SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS...

A special THANK YOU to all the alumni who made donations to the Redwood Alumni Scholarship and the Bill Wilkinson Memorial Scholarship this year. We exceeded our goal and were able to give two generous Alumni Scholarships and the first Bill Wilkinson Scholarship to three amazing seniors. Special thanks to Jed Bullard '66 for establishing the five year Wilkinson Scholarship.

 

Ryan Barbosa                             Dante Luis
Alumni Scholarship recipients

Ryan Barbosa, Alumni Scholarship winner, came to Marin with his mother (a former Redwood student) from Brazil. From an early age he was interested in politics and very disturbed by the corruption in his home country. He is determined to study political science and international relations so that one day he can return to Brazil and become its President! He said he might start out as Governor of California! He plans to study at St. Mary's in Moraga.

Dante Luis, Alumni Scholarship winner, moved around quite a bit which forced him to find a passion... programming virtual reality simulations and video games. He taught himself using manuals and websites, and was quickly recognized for his skills and determination. He has been accepted at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY with good financial aid to pursue his dreams.


Saidy Reyes...Wilkinson Memorial Scholarship

Saidy Reyes, Bill Wilkinson Scholarship winner, is a perfect fit for this award. This scholarship was created this year to honor a retired teacher who went on to get a law degree in immigrant relations. Both Bill's wife and Saidy hail from Guatemala. Saidy arrived in this country four years ago leaving her parents behind. She lives with her sister and quickly became fluent in English, enough so to be able to take several AP classes! She has been accepted at UC Davis to study landscape architecture and was just notified that she is also a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship.

Each spring the Redwood Alumni Association gives a $2500 (or more) scholarship to a deserving student. Please support future graduates by contributing $25 or more to this wonderful cause. We will apply any future donations to the 2022 scholarship winners. You may donate to honor a former teacher, staff member or classmate and we will notify them when possible..

DONATE NOW to the Alumni Scholarship Program!

KREPS DEDICATION TO EDUCATION LIVES ON
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.

GIVE BACK TO REDWOOD... 2021-2022 CAMPAIGN
