Edgewood High School combined with West Covina High School in 1988, mostly for financial reasons. The new West Covina High STUDENTS voted on and chose the colors Maroon and Gold and the Bulldog as mascot. Faculty and some staff moved from Edgewood into positions at the West Covina campus. Trojan Green and Gold and Spartan Blue and White and the Alma Maters of each were "retired" to form a new school, but with the name still West Covina High School. A shock and trauma for many for many years, but today's school spirit and faculty and staff and students continue to be excellent representatives for the city of West Covina. The Edgewood High School campus was converted to a 6th--8th grade middle school in 1988, and remains so, however, now part of the campus is a new high school and is called Edgewood High, but the colors and mascot are different than ours were.

School Story

I have been fortunate to graduate from Edgewood High School with the class of 1965 as a Trojan; to join the faculty of West Covina High School in 1972 as a Spartan; and to continue teaching there until 2013 as a Bulldog. I live in the Pasadena area, but I love to follow WCHS football and visit friends still teaching at either campus. Several faculty members from Edgewood became my colleagues at West Covina, which made it extra special for me. I always felt at home!

Santa Anita Racetrack is always fun. Great idea, Committee! Thanks for keeping us "on track" with our lives. Hope to see many of you there next year.

Hi, All. It was wonderful to see so many at the 50th Reunion, even if I didn't know (or remember!) some of you. Thank you for making the event special by your presence. Travelers, you guys are the best! Reunion Committee--Bravo.

Susie, how many were in our graduating class? It seems like a lot, but I haven't counted senior pix and there doesn't seem to be a list of who's missing. Thanks.

Susie, where does your Mom live? Give her my love. She was my "stay at home" mom on the block when we were little kids. The only one left in the neighborhood that I know of is Shirley Trezincko, who is doing great and still lives on her own next door to my old house. I see Karen Moser on this site! Where in the world is Herma Smith or Tina Thon?

Neil--I remember that day, too, and was amazed that Mr. Sergio could remember everyone's name the first day. But I thought he said you should wear glasses because it would be easier to attach your name "Speck"man with your face. You can't imagine how many times I thought about his reference to you! I taught at West Covina High School with "Louie" as my boss and Department Chair for many years. It was an honor!
