The GWHS Alumni Association inaugurated the Hall of Merit in 1970 by inducting violinist David Abel S'53, pianist Roy Bogas S'50, U.S. Congressman Phil Burton F'43, Olympic Gold Medal swimmer Ann Curtis Cuneo S'44, singer Johnny Mathis F'53, NFL Hall of Fame back Ollie Matson S'48 and Miss America 1955/actress Lee Meriwether S'53. The Hall of Merit now numbers over 100 alumni with distinguished accomplishments in a wide range of fields. My photos begin at 2007; the Archives gallery is populated by photo contributions from inductees and Alumni directors.
