At 10 am, the VHS Alumni program will commence in the school auditorium with past VHS Principal, Phil Saroyan (VHS '65), as the Master of Ceremonies. The guest speaker will be Jim Orr (VHS '58) who will discuss his new book "Rock 'n Roll'n the 50s and 60s".

Just a quick report to provide the results of the roll-call count at the April 26, 2019 Vallejo High School Alumni Day Celebration. The "upstart" VHS Class of 1964 actually tied the Class of 1957 Alumni attendees with eleven alumni in attendance from each class.
Registration started at 9 am in the school cafeteria where refreshments were served, hosted by the VHS Hospitality Academy under the direction of Camille Jefferson.
The program in the school auditorium commenced at 10 am with the Master of Ceremonies, Phil Saroyan, VHS Class of 1965 (VHS principal 1993-2009) leading the flag salute and the singing of 'God Bless America'. He next introduced the keynote speaker; President of the Vallejo City Unified School District; Bob Lawson, VHS Class of 1964.
During the program, entertainment was be provided by the VHS Band under the direction of Carmel Pajita, the VHS cheerleaders directed by Reyanna Stowes, and the VHS Choir led by Denise Hunter.
Bruce Christensen introduced the 2018 Apache Scholarship awardee, Emma Alexander, who reported on her first year attending Napa Valley College. She will continue her college education with the goal of working in law enforcement.
After the roll call of VHS classes competition, which the Class of '57 and Class of '64 tied, the program wrapped up with the Alumni singing the VHS alma mater accompanied by the VHS Band.
Afterward, in the school library, many alumni viewed the dozens of VHS historical memorabilia that were on display courtesy of the VHS Athletic Director, Josh Ramos.
Many photos were taken during the event and some are posted on the link below.....My apologies for those pictures that are 'blurry'; perhaps my camera is trying to call it quits. If any of you happen to have additional "non-blurry" photos, email them to [email protected] and they will be posted.

Our 60-Year VHS Class of 1957 reunion was held on Saturday, September 16, 2017 in Vallejo at Zio Fraedo's Restaurant at 23 Harbor Way.
The reunion was attended by about 90 VHS Class of '57 classmates and guests who enjoyed recalling their high school days in the 1950s.
A delicious buffet dinner was served. The reunion committee, consisting of Gail Speckel (Barker), Anna Emge (Scopesi), Ron Smith, Sharon Rimestad (Ketelsen), Jeanne Vanecek (Miller), Bill Hopkins, Deanne Moler (Kulmus), and Bruce Christensen were introduced and there were several door prizes awarded.
A short program was held after the dinner, with 1950s music provided by classmate Ron Smith.
Thanks to all who attended the 60-year reunion. We're looking forward to the year 2022 when we will gather to celebrate the VHS Class of 1957's 65-Year reunion.
