2024 GHS Museum Opening
10 am to 2 pm

Dear Friends,
Join us to relive your Foothiller memories and to create new ones as we celebrate 103 years of Grossmont High School history. 

After 5 months of unpacking, rearranging, and squeezing things in, we are ready to reopen our third museum. Beginning in 2007, our amazing journey through 3 museums would not have been possible without the support of generous donors and willing volunteers.

The 2024 Museum was created with the invaluable assistance of our family: Yvonne Baer Vellone, Class of 1975, and her husband Dave and son Matt, nephew Kyle Baer and his wife Kijan, and wonderful volunteer and friend Jerry Botts, Class of 1975. 

Their positive attitudes and “can do” attitudes encouraged and supported us when we were discouraged and feeling overwhelmed with boxes and feelings of “we can’t”.

The wall displays are a result of district carpenter Tony Patton “working his magic”, from squeezing the 1920 doors on a wall that was not tall enough to hanging the 1960s-1970s  surfboards high over the windows, to installing the 1950 Girls PE Rec Room wooden entrance doors as the doors to our adjacent Instrumental Music display room, and more. Tony never says “I can’t.” He figures out how to do it.

We see “the light at the end of the tunnel” as we continue to arrange displays and determine the placement of our amazing photos.
