One of the first orders of business for the school year ending 2007 was to award scholarships. Pictured below are the first two “Most Improved” scholarship recipients from the Class of 2007, Angela Thomas and DeMario Reece. Because of your support during the 2007-2008 school year, the CHSAA was able to award an additional $5,000 in scholarships to students of the Class of 2008; give approximately $4,000 to boys and girls athletics, the band, cheerleaders and drill team, and the Associated Student Body. In addition, we donated $600 to the Elevate Your G.A.M.E. mentoring program to fund student summer internships, and we donated $500 to Valerie Hernandez ’09, to assist with her travel expenses to Hawaii for a week-long seminar. Your outpouring of support exemplifies the CHSAA slogan, “Reaching Back to Move Forward!” Thank you for giving back!

The Compton High School Alumni Association (CHSAA) continues to be the kind of non-profit organization that supports its community. On Tuesday, December 21, 2009, the CHSAA Community Services Chair and Co-Chair, Phyllis Williams and Mona McClure, respectively, wrapped new toys and delivered them to the Compton Homeless Shelter for Women and Children. The Homeless Shelter staff and the recipients of the gifts are always appreciative of the CHSAA’s support. This represents the second consecutive year this Homeless Shelter has received new toys for the kids donated by the CHSAA. Visit the Photo Album page for pictures.
