"Achieve the Honorable"
The History of Hollywood High School
The Hollywood High School Alumni Association (HHSAA) is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1907, the year of the first HHS graduating class. HHSAA membership is open to anyone who attended Hollywood High School since its founding in 1903. HHSAA currently has approximately 1,800 dues paying members, with increasing membership coming from the over 26,000 graduates who attended HHS from the 1930's through 2009. The organization champions the same “Achieve the Honorable” personal achievement standard that has been mentored to HHS students throughout the school’s 106-year history.
HHSAA draws upon a vast intergenerational and global network of celebrated and accomplished alumni to advance the school’s traditions. HHSAA partners with current HHS administration and faculty in on-campus and community based initiatives that nurture students in academic performance, moral character development, civic responsibility, entrepreneurship, inventiveness, athletic competition and artistic expression.
HHSAA organizes social events and fundraising activities to provide scholarships to deserving HHS graduates and makes other contributions to the HHS campus that improve quality of life for current and future students. HHSAA also produces special events and manages other programs that maintain connectivity between alumni and preserve the rich history and the fond memories that alumni have of their HHS years.
Finally, HHSAA serves as the curator of the famous HHS Museum, which houses in its collection the HHS Celebrity Hall of Fame, HHS Sports Hall of Fame, HHS War Memorial and the emerging HHS Music Hall of Fame, among other HHS community history.
