School on the Hill 100th Celebration
November 7 - 8, 2008

The reception and dinner dance on November 7th and 8th was a success. Students and faculty renewed old friendships and made some new ones. The cash bar stayed busy and the food was delicious.

Total registration count was 441.

On Saturday morning the PBHS Museum located at 4th and Flagler was open and the school campus, now Dreyfoos School of the Arts, was open for tours. Students from Dreyfoos conducted tours of the school and gave a musical performance in the theatre. Russo subs were sold in the cafeteria and an old car exhibit was located in front of the school buildings.

The dinner dance program was emceed by Monte Markham ('53). Marvin Anthony ('61) and George Reese ('61) prepared and presented a slideshow of the history of the "Schools on the Hill." Terry Grow ('65) was the DJ for the celebration.

Marvin Anthony made a special presentation by presenting a plaque to the family of Reggie Stambaugh ('47). Dr. Stambaugh passed away in December 2007 and was instrumental in saving the school on the hill buildings and establishing the Palm Beach High School Historical Association and Museum.
