Finally Celebrating Fifty?

El Modena questions when to celebrate 50 years of Vanguard pride


Between the last two years, the 50th Year Anniversary at El Modena raises questions among the campus.

El Modena has been an established school since 1966. This makes the most recent school year, of 2015-2016, the mark of the 50th Anniversary of the opening of the school. But, because the year El Modena was established did not have a graduating Senior class, technically the celebration of the 50th year of the graduating classes at El Modena reins on to this 2016-2017 school year.

Last year El Modena’s yearbook staff decided to have a theme of the historical 50 years of the campus. Despite normal yearbook standards, the book contained more than just the 2015-2016 year’s students. The staff included a celebration of the last 50 years spent on the campus reliving alumni vicariously through pictures and pastimes of leaps of years in past books.

As for this year, the time not only celebrates the establishment of the school, but all the past 50 years’ graduates of the school. All Alumni look back on the school’s representation of fifty generations of Vanguards. El Modena hopes to represent the past 50 alumni at sporting games, assemblies, and more in this upcoming year.
