Connecting '54-'79 Alums of Morningside High School

If you attended Inglewood's Morningside High School during the grad years of 1954-1979 this site is for you.  Over a thousand alums have come together here, many of whom haven't seen each other in decades.  See the list of these friends.  Please join and become another one of these connections. 

The purpose of this website is to help reconnect people who were friends while at MHS.  Feel free to use the email information to contact those old friends.  Please do not use the emails for solicitation or mass mailing.

CALLING ALL VETERANS... In the future, MHS is planning to honor all alumni and faculty who served in the Armed Forces so we’re putting together an MHS Veterans list. See who we have so far.

Campus Today
Curious about how our alma mater looks today? We have a collection of photos showing various parts of the campus. See the photos.

Birthday List
As the members of the website grow, so of course does the birthday list. With over 1,000 members the list has gotten pretty long. You can now access the membership list by birthday.

Yearbook Covers
We recently scanned the covers of the first 25 yearbooks. These may bring back memories of teachers, classmates, experiences, and some of the crazy things we used to write in each other's yearbooks.


Newsletter Supplement
Here are extended articles and features from the Mane Line newsletter:

FACULTY SPOTLIGHT... Mr. Franklin brought an idea to the table. We listened. To the fine educators that walked the halls of Monroe and MHS, to you, we dedicate this section. See the spotlights.


Championships! We've tried to be as accurate as possible on this, getting information from various sources. One of our goals is to eventually replace the championship flags in the school gym from the 60's and 70's that have "gone missing." Check this out.


Triple Trio... We now have available names, photos, and album discography of Triple Trio from 1959 to 1970. There's also a photo of the 1958 Continentals. See the info.

MUSIC SAVED Me, by Zenobia Conkerite. "When I hear certain songs on the radio, I get very nostalgic about my 4 years at MHS.
