This past weekend, September 12-14, 2014, Gunn celebrated its 50th Anniversary with an alumni-studded series of fabulous events coordinated by a group of dedicated Gunn parents (Thanks to Sheryl Humble, Miriam Rotman, and Lynn Johnson), along with new Gunn Principal Dr. Denise Herrmann and new Superintendent Dr. Max McGee.  The festivities included a Friday afternoon BBQ at Bol Park, followed by a Gunn Titan football game, a Saturday morning tribute event with the Gunn Choir in the new Titan gym, followed by campus tours and lunch, a Saturday evening Gala event, and a Sunday afternoon of field games.  NBC Anchor Janelle Wang (a Gunn alum) was the Master of Ceremonies for Saturday's tribute and speakers included Tim Farrell (a Gunn English teacher for 40 years), Robert McLean (Gunn's first Principal), US Representative Zoe Lofgren (a Gunn alum), and Tanya Mota, who spoke eloquently about her grandfather, Henry M. Gunn.  (As a side note, Tanya is also a Gunn alum and was the fabulous Director of Juana Briones Kids' Club when my children were there.)
