Since 1921 with the graduation of its first senior class, GHS Alumni have returned to their school to show their gratitude. Today, we have two generous alumni leaving their footprints on Grossmont’s physical campus: Gene Chubb, Class of 1948, and Bill Woolman, Class of 1962.
In June of 1921, Grossmont’s first graduating class of 37 seniors became Foothiller alumni. In 2018, the 97thgraduating class numbered 503. Today, a total of 36,611 alumni call themselves Foothillers. Tuesday, August 13th, was the first day of school for 575 excited and anxious freshmen, who are members of the class of 2022, Grossmont’s 101stgraduating class. August 8th, incoming freshmen were welcomed to Grossmont for Freshman Orientation by trained G Crew members. Throughout the year, ninth graders are guided by the G Crew as they adjust to the personal and academic challenges of a high school campus with a student population of 2160.
The GHS Educational Foundation is the only support group on campus that raises money and provides volunteer support for programs, supplies, and other needs that benefit all Grossmont students and staff. The Foundation’s motto is “Take Your Memories, Leave Your Footprints” with footprints being its logo. The money is raised by the Foundation through memberships and donations as well as annual interest from the GHS Endowment Fund.
For 97 years, Grossmont High School’s students and staff have taken great pride in the traditions surrounding graduation. Thursday, June 7th, 503 seniors became part of an amazing group, more than 36,600 Foothiller graduates.
