                         $5,000 REWARD FOR LOST
                        POLY ATHLETIC TROPHIES

October 21, 2020

San Francisco, CA - One Hundred and twenty-six years after San Francisco's first public school opened, its alumni association is offering $5,000 for the school's lost athletic trophies.

Polytechnic High School on Frederick Street was torn down in the late 1980's and numerous large football trophies vanished along with the building itself. Throughout the years Poly alumni and teachers have searched local schools, public libraries, and Municipal Railway storage units for the valued awards but so far nothing has been found.

The monetary reward is being offered by Poly Alumni Association board members, who have personally donated the money. It is hoped that $5,000 will inspire former Poly students, their families and friends of the school to continue an investigation that began over a decade ago. It is part of the Polytechnic High School "Legacy" program which was begun earlier this year.

The Polytechnic Alumni Association raises annual scholarship funds for deserving San Francisco high school seniors. Please email the Polytechnic  Alumni Association if you have any information.
