In 2004, Garry Poe and about 30 former Rolling Hills High School student athletes held the first “Remember The Titans” breakfast at the Long Beach Airport Marriott.  That singular meal ten years ago has evolved into a day of golf and afterwards a dinner at the Palos Verdes Country Club.  At each year’s gathering Poe reminds the former Titans and their buddies, that he remembers them as teenagers, and there are “no angels in the room.”
Remember the Titans has been a driving force for SHORTSTOP and they continue to lead the way in dedicating its philanthropy through leaders like 
Emeritus Board Member Dan McDonald, Cal football legend Kevin Moen
, Poe (pictured, left), and numerous others.    
Every one of them at one time or another could have benefited from a program like SHORTSTOP.  And now they are in a position to make a real difference for kids who are at the cross roads of their lives. Poe believes that remembering the closed high school each year is a positive way to renew our pledge to kids.
