Annual Samohi All-Class Reunion Picnic Returns This Saturday:

The Santa Monica High School Alumni Association’s 26th Annual All-Class Picnic will be held this Saturday, June 13 from 10 am to 2 pm in the Quad at Santa Monica High School. Admission is free and all Samohi graduates are welcome.

This year the BBQ is back, by popular demand. Find and reconnect with classmates at tables arranged by year or era. There will be class photos taken, Samohi Alumni apparel for sale, memorabilia and yearbooks for sale, and lots of great catching up to do with good friends. 

Join the excitement at 1:30 pm as awards are given out to some of Samohi’s most accomplished alumni: former Samohi Football Coach Tebb Kuserow, retired Santa Monica City Councilmember Bob Holbrook, former Samohi Baseball Assistant Coach Tony Todd (also an actor and ex-athlete), and Oscar de la Torre, SMMUSD School Board Member and founder of Santa Monica’s Pico Youth and Family Center.

Santa Monica High School was founded in 1891 and celebrates its 125th year in 2016. Samohi alumni have won Olympic gold, flown in space, accepted Oscars, twice been awarded the replica watches Congressional Medal of Honor, have founded successful businesses and services, and have served the public as police, firemen, doctors and teachers, lawyers and other professions.

The highly diverse and accomplished group of Samohi alumni ranges from 17 to well over 100 years of age.

The Samohi Alumni Association works to inspire current students to reach as high as they can, to connect alumni with one another, to honor the achievements of students, alumni and staff, and to encourage alumni to carry their Viking heritage with them throughout their lives. The SAA has been involved with campus life and the alumni body for over 25 years, publishing the Viking News and organizing programs and scholarships.
