History of the San Juan Legacy Exhibit 

The Legacy Exhibit Room opened in 2013. Come in and browse through the 100-year history of San Juan High School. Look up old classmates; check out Who’s Who, and find out what is going on with former graduates. See lots of history of the San Juan area, feeder schools, and pioneer families. There are also books written by former students about the communities around the school. Many former teachers were also students of San Juan.

SJAA Newsletter – Issue #113 – February 2018

The purpose of the San Juan Legacy Exhibit is to educate the San Juan High School community about the history of the school. This will be accomplished by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and making available the historic materials, including publications, from the school, its alumni, teachers, students, and administrative staff. 

We continue to receive new items and are able to fit them into our current space, however, we are looking to share some of our items with the Citrus Heights Historical Society. We are grateful for the input and support provided by Teena Stern, Volunteer Archivist for the City of Citrus Heights, who assists us in maximizing our available space and ensuring that we are linked to the Citrus Heights community efforts.

Volunteer Docents Wanted: Also, we want to remind you that we are working with the SJAA to support event planning and assistance in obtaining more volunteer docents. If you have any interest in becoming a docent, and spending an hour or two, as needed, please contact Jerry Still, ’60, whiskeystill@comcast.net.

Display Cases for Sale: If you or someone you know is interested in sponsoring a display case, we have five cases available for $250 a case. This sponsorship will benefit the ongoing efforts for Legacy Exhibit projects. If you are interested, please contact the Legacy Exhibit committee as listed below.
