In 1958, in one of the most enduring displays of affection for a high school alma mater, L.A. High Alumnus Alice G. Harrison (Class of 1895!) left her entire estate to L.A. High School. In 1960 The Alice G. Harrison Memorial Trust was established. Overseen by a Board of Trustees consisting of alumni, school administrators and teachers, The Harrison Trust – per the terms of Ms. Harrison’s will – provides “exceptional educational opportunities and experiences which would not otherwise be available to the students of the Los Angeles High School through public funds.” The Trust gives thousands of dollars each year in support of L.A. High School - including student academic scholarships, athletic programs, arts, dance, theater, journalism, yearbook, culinary arts, science, robotics and school beautification.
The Harrison Trust has become an increasingly vital partner at Los Angeles High School, helping to guide the school in an exciting new direction. To insure the longevity of the Trust and continued commitment to L.A. High, we will be engaging with alumni and community members to raise additional funds and build long term partnerships that insure that we not only provide an excellent education for our students, but that we maintain the incredible history and integrity of the city's namesake school.
