HPISD's Centennial Celebration: Oct 17-19

In honor of its 100th anniversary, Highland Park ISD hosted a weekend full of fun events Oct. 17-19. The celebration began on the afternoon of Oct. 17 as each campus released students early and hosted an open house for the community. Each school featured a display case of cherished historical items for visiting alumni and other visitors to view, along with student tours and other special events.

The next day, the HP Education Foundation and the Alumni Association hosted the annual Golden Scots reunion. The luncheon hosts graduating classes from 50 years or more, and this year's event welcomed more than 700 alumni.

On Oct. 19, the community enjoyed a block party that featured performances from student groups, bounce houses and games for kids, photo booths, food trucks and more. The highlight of the event was the Scots Museum held inside the Multi-Purpose Activities Center. The museum showcased the spirit of HP schools and highlighted each campus and many of the clubs and organizations from the high school. Special items at the museum included Doak Walker's Heisman Trophy, yearbooks and scrapbooks from every campus, athletic uniforms from nearly every decade and much more.
