Too bad the Almanac wasn't there to report on this first hand. It really shows the greatness of our local public high school in Redwood City. As an alumni and a present parent of a student, Sequoia High School continues to excel, serving ALL of the community.

Plus, there was a group of band students there presenting music, a feat that only a few years ago would not have been possible as the program was in disarray.

Go Cherokees!
