In June of 1921, Grossmont’s first graduating class of 37 seniors became Foothiller alumni. In 2018, the 97th graduating class numbered 503. Today, a total of 36,611 alumni call themselves Foothillers. 

For 97 years, Grossmont High School’s students and staff have taken great pride in the traditions surrounding graduation.

On Thursday, June 7, 503 seniors became part of an amazing group of more than 36,600 Foothiller graduates.

Since 1936, the graduating seniors have been led into the ceremony by the Daisy Chain, an 82-year-old tradition.
