In 1997, FHS installed the “Walk of Fame”. The idea was presented at an annual CADA convention. Activities Director, Howard Zinn, had the idea of building a brick walkway where alumni and students and businesses could have their names engraved – creating a heritage as well as some funds for the school. Mr. Zinn has personally installed every single plaque himself. Eleven yeras later, the Walk of Fame is almost completely filled. “My goal before I retire is to complete the project started in 1997. Approximately 325 ‘pavers’ remain to be purchased. Of the original 1134, 784 have been sold and the school has raised approximately $19,600. This is an awesome fundraiser and all who have participated have “left their mark”.

The John M. Nelson Conservancy of Camp Nelson,CA., has had great success with our Memorial Walk as a fundraiser. The community has responded by honoring living people as well as memorials.
The walk adds a point of interest to our grounds.
Leave Your Mark! has been consistently cooperative and helpful.
