David Solano

Vice President

As the parent of a Bayside High School graduate, and parent leader in the School Leadership Team & PTA during her 4 years, I was happy to support the school through parent involvement. When the need for an alumni/community organization arose, I was happy to take part as a member of the executive board for Friends of Bayside High School. This is our first year and we are off to a great start with the 80th Anniversary celebration planning. A greater undertaking is the Alumni directory you are reading here. We hope to connect all the alumni through Friends of Bayside High School and continue the support to the students, present and future. This is only possible with your support to which I say, sincerely, Thank You!  Dave Solano, V.P.
