Posted by Community Relations on 8/24/2015

Camelback held its 12th annual Alumni Day, August 18, bringing back 28 alums from 1988 to 2013 to discuss college and career with students. Two of the alumni travelled from Oregon and New York. The alumni visited with juniors and seniors every period, sharing their life stories from Camelback to career. The event is put on by Marketing teacher and DECA advisor Julia Bourdo and longtime volunteer, Jeff Stephens.
“Jeff is my hero for coming to Camelback for the past thirty years giving our kids hope, love, and lifelong skills that have followed all of them into their careers and life. We are all really blessed to have Jeff and his unending support of our community at PUHSD,” Bourdo said.
Said Stephens, a local architect, about the alums returning: “My definition of a hero is someone who does heroic deeds every day. If you attended the 12th annual Camelback DECA Alumni Day yesterday, you would have witnessed a room full of heroes. How lucky I am to have such wonderful and thoughtful former students.”
