The Roger Wollesen Award is given in memory of the counselor/teacher who helped establish Calaveras Hills High School in 1969 and was an integral part of the staff until his death in 1995. Mr. Wollesen encouraged academic excellence throughout his career, so this award is given to a senior with enthusiasm for learning and an outstanding academic record.

The Flemming Madsen Award honors Mr. Flemming Madsen who served as principal at Calaveras Hills High School for ten years. In his post-retirement he serves as the liaison between Cal Hills and Milpitas High School. Because Mr. Madsen was instrumental in helping so many students turn their lives around, this award is designated for the senior who has made the most positive life changes while attending Cal Hills.

The Gladys Fernandes Award honors the first secretary at Cal Hills, she continued to offer her services long after her retirement. Until her death in 1994, Gladys treated everyone at Cal Hills as an extension of her family and this award is presented to the senior who best exemplifies the family spirit of the school.

Gold -Cord Award Recognition

Students who complete seventy-five or more hours of VOLUNTARY community service are awarded a Gold Cord. They are recognized at the graduation ceremony by being awarded a gold cord to wear with their graduation gowns.
