Piedmont High School
Class Of 1961
Announcing the upcoming Piedmont Wall of Honor commemorating the women and men who have Achieved the Honorable by serving our Country.
The Wall of Honor (WoH) committee has worked for 18 months successfully seeking approval from the school system, City administrators and community. The WoH exhibit will be in the school library with access by a touch screen interactive Kiosk for the students and visitors. It will also be available to your mobile device or home computer. You will be able to submit additional names, details, stories and photos to help the list grow.
The cornerstone of the WoH will be a robust website and a digital repository of service member names & information of those from Piedmont who have served in any one of the uniformed nine branches of service: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard, Public Health Service, US NOAA, Nurses or in the U.S. Foreign Service.
The Members List will include the names, branch of service, PHS graduation year and special remarks. Visitors to the website and the interactive kiosk will have access to a submission form for friends and family members to contribute new entries, stories and photos to add to the list. Examples are:
Egbert W. Beach KIA, 1918, Army, WW I (Grammar School); David Waybur KIA, 1938, Army, WW II (Congressional Medal of Honor, Silver Star); Jean Witter Jr KIA, 1938, Navy, WW II (Witter Football Field).
To build a professional exhibit that honors our service members and a robust website & databank suitable for use by students in a school setting, by the alumni and community at large is expensive. Please consider a Donation (tax deductible) of any amount to speed our Wall of Honor to be completed.
Donors that contribute by May 15 will be designated as Founders and receive recognition on the Wall of Honor website. Founding Donors in the Honor, Pride and Courage categories will be included as part of the permanent Wall of Honor exhibit in the library.

Our 55th reunion is in the books and I think it will go down as one of the best. The Friday evening, kick off event at the Claremont had nearly 30 of us there to get in the mood and begin our special weekend together. The daytime format for the Saturday reunion and lunch was a huge success with 50 classmates in attendance and another 15 spouses and friends there to enjoy the day. As promised, it was a perfect location with good food and plenty of time for mingling and conversation.....and we did!! Thanks to all of the attendees for your commitment to the class and it’s legacy as we honor our time together at Piedmont High School, all these years later. And thanks to the Reunion Committee for making the event another special memory that we can keep with us always. Bravo!
