From the owner of a luxury home firm who served on charitable boards to an actress and director who has appeared in films such as “Minority Report” and “Charlie Wilson’s War,” six Hillcrest High School distinguished alumni will be recognized for their noted accomplishments on Oct. 14.
In addition to recognizing the Class of 2015 HHS Distinguished Alumni, the HHS Alumni Association’s second-annual Platinum Panther Celebration will also honor alumni who graduated 50 years ago. Proceeds from the event, which is by reservation only and held at the Prestonwood Country Club, will benefit the HHS Alumni Association Scholarship fund.
“We love this opportunity to recognize our distinguished graduates and our longtime alums while also raising money for scholarships,” said Betsy Nelson, chairperson of the HHS Alumni Association. “It’s a great event.”
HHS is also hosting an Alumni Open House on Saturday morning, Oct. 17, from 9:30 a.m.–12 p.m. After a few brief remarks and introduction of new principal, Dr. Leeann Bartee, students will lead tours of the school. The 2015 Distinguished Alumni will be at the open house to mingle.
George Tobolowsky, a Hillcrest High School alum (1967), successful attorney, businessman and sculptor, will also be at the open house to discuss the sculpture he gifted the school.
