We're not ready to share all of the details with you now, but the Foundation's biggest fundraiser of the year will be all about YOU, the stars of Woodland Hills School District! So, save the date for Saturday, March 11, 2023 and browse below to learn more about our plans to honor you, the District we serve!

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30!

 

For the past several years, the Foundation has sought to recognize an alumni of distinction during the (former) Chocolate & Diamonds Affair. When selecting an honoree, the Foundation wished to salute the achievements of an alum whose personal and professional achievements, along with their service to the community, exemplify the objectives and vision of the Foundation.  Past winners include Summer Lee and Nathanial Carter, Jr. In 2021 the Foundation installed our Distinguished Alumni Wall of Honor outside of the auditorium at Woodland Hills High School.  Following the annual gala, winners of the Distinguished Alumni of the Year award are added to the wall. Currently, the wall honors seven alumni whose achievements are a testament to Woodland Hills School District and whose lives are an inspiration to our current students.

This year, our hope is that YOU, the community, who know first-hand the work that is being done our former students to nominate an alumni who has inspired YOU.

We are seeking nominees who have distinguished themselves and contributed to society in an exemplary manner. 

You should consider nominees on the following criteria:


1. Accomplishments in his or her chosen career
2. Volunteer work or acts of service
3. A positive impact on people or contributions to others

You may self-nominate.

Members of the Woodland Hills Foundation Board are NOT eligible for nomination.

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN THROUGH WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 23

​Once all nominations are received, all those who have been nominated will be posted on our website and social media.

The public will then be asked to vote for the person who they feel most exemplifies the objectives and vision of the Woodland Hills School District and the Woodland Hills Foundation.

The nominee with the most votes will be honored on Saturday, March 11 during our Starry Night Gala at Edgewood Country Club.
