Newport Harbor High School is incredibly lucky to have a space on campus dedicated to the history of our alma mater. Not many high schools have a museum where current students can learn about those who walked the halls before them, so we are understandably proud of our Web Jones Heritage Hall Museum!
We are always looking to update our displays, so if you have pictures, film, video, scrapbooks, posters, art projects, uniforms, or other artifacts that would help tell the story of NHHS, please get in touch with us to arrange a donation — (949) 515-6376 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to drop off something at the school's Main Office, please print and fill out this form to accompany your donation, so we can recognize your gift.
The Web Jones Heritage Hall museum, along with our other programs, is supported by our Heritage Endowment, which helps provide the necessary equipment and materials that sustain our many projects, like:
Archiving, Preserving, and Showcasing memorabilia
Digitizing pictures and film of past Arts, Athletics, and Campus Activities
Supporting and Producing the Hall of Fame
Connecting Students Past and Present through Reunion support, Campus tours, and other events
Creating a documentary about the history of NHHS
With the continuing support of alumni like you, we will continue to expand, and even improve upon, our rich tradition in order to better serve the students of the future. Help us secure our NHHS history for years to come with a financial contribution to our Heritage Endowment!
The idea for Heritage Hall began in 1979 when teachers Fabian Giroux, Web Jones, and two others interviewed Mr. Sidney Davidson, Harbor’s founding principal, about the early years of the school. In 1980, in honor of NHHS’s 50th anniversary, a small space that was once a typing room opened as the first Heritage Hall. A few years later, Web Jones oversaw the building of a much larger Heritage Hall, with the help of alumni Rolly Pulaski, Jack and Donald Koll, and Walkie Ray. The displays were filled with memorabilia collected by the newly-revitalized Alumni Association, overseen by Mr. Jones along with Betty and Charles Beecher.
