SAC Newsletter

Volume 1 #1 Spring 2021

The STETHS Alumni Connection (SAC) Newsletter Team is pleased to present our first-ever quarterly newsletter at a time which, although fraught with the threat from a viral pandemic, is also filled with the hope that spring brings and the joy of celebrating longevity. This year marks 25 years of STETHS Alumni Association (Inc.) and 60 years since the inception of our alma mater. As we celebrate and learn to adapt to a changing world, we hope SAC helps you to reconnect, renew and strengthen those ties formed decades ago, or more recently, at the foot of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Please enjoy our features of two fellow alumni who have distinguished themselves and contributed much to society on the national and international stage.

In this issue, we also tune in to the voices of current STETHS students, invite you to test your knowledge of STETHS trivia, explore some resources for coping with health and wellness concerns, especially during this time, and take a quick look back at the STETHS alumni Association’s journey over a quarter-century.

We hope you are inspired to join and “Be A Part” during our alumni membership campaign.
