The Alumni History and Hall of Fame Project
Since its founding in 1853, the Los Angeles Unified School District has provided a quality public education to millions of students, who have gone on to shape the tapestry of their communities. The Alumni History and Hall of Fame Project is an effort to identify and recognize those students who have distinguished themselves, among millions of others, through their achievements in a chosen career field and/or the significant impacts they have had on their city, state, or nation. By compiling their biographies, we seek to preserve their legacy.
The Coalition of High School Alumni Organizations (CHSAO) is made up of alumni representatives of high schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District dedicated to engaging the interests and resources of alumni in helping current students at their schools have a more meaningful future. The CHSAO has recently undertaken supervision of the LAUSD Alumni History Project. The project was initiated by retired Chief Instructional Officer Robert Collins and his wife Sandy, a retired middle school principal, who spent more than 1000 hours compiling – for the first time – an impressive book containing the names, photos, and brief biographies of more than 1200 distinguished LAUSD Alumni.
