Reminisce ~ Reconnect ~ Reunite 


June 2011

Welcome blue textalumni, teachers and staff of Will C. Crawford High School. You have landed on the OFFICIAL web site of the WILL C. CRAWFORD HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION & FOUNDATION located in San Diego, CA.

Crawford High School continues to build upon its great heritage with the support of parents, businesses, teachers and alumni.
This site is where you can reconnect with over 30,000 classmates, teachers and staff--those who graduated from Crawford, and those who may have moved but still shared classes, sports, clubs and memories with us, and your teachers and staff. Elementary school and junior high also. All are welcome to reunite here. 
So what is it that draws us together? It’s the memories of being together at the height of raging hormones, supreme daring, and ultimate idiocies when all things were possible and friendships were forever. It’s the experience of unforgettable times, for better or worse, that ended our teenage years and launched us into adulthood. We want you to feel welcome here, and we hope you'll share a bit of yourself with us, in this exclusive and private community.

 Hey Colts!  The Crawford Foundation now meets at 4:00PM in Room 513.  This earlier time allows the Crawford staff and others who attend to bridge the gap between school activities and the meeting start time.  The Board will continue to meet the 2nd Tuesday of each month (except July, August and December).  We welcome fellow alumni who wish to become new members of the Board of Directors.  As a board member, you would be helping with fundraisers and special projects at Crawford, as well as supporting the Alumni Association and its events. If you can't commit to our meetings and still want to help, there are subcommittees with various projects that need willing participants.  If you are interested in joining either team, please contact us at this email:
