"The Alumni Association was a project of the 100 Buccaneers Service Society, in the Fall of 1969, to start a Balboa High School Alumni Association, and with the special help of Beverly Rodriguez (S' 70) and other 100 Bucs, the Alumni Association held an organizational meeting in April of 1970, with John Payne, (S' 70) 100 Buc President presiding. Over 200 people reported and one of the shining lights I met that night was Emily Powell (F'46), many times elected Alumni President. That's one of the great things about Balboa, it's students, it's graduates. They are enormously proud and loyal to their school. There is a PASSION for Balboa that does not exist in other schools. Of course, there are those wonderful traditions: the Senior Sweater, the Senior Panoramic Picture, the Senior Jinx, and other traditions, but none so unforgettable as the Move-Up Assembly. I will never forget the first Move-Up that I saw in June of 1957. The music from "Aida", the Senior Song, No school can match that! " - Nick Kafkas
