The Sequoia High School Alumni Association is looking to honor a "Purple Patriot."
The group is seeking nominations for its annual Purple Patriot Award - purple and white being Sequoia High School of Redwood City's official colors.
"The Purple Patriot Award is an annual award instituted to honor both individuals and organizations that have demonstrated outstanding service or provided a significant benefit directly to Sequoia High School," the Alumni Association said in a statement last week.
Nominees may be from Sequoia High School or the community at large.
Recipients will receive a framed certificate as well as have their name inscribed on a perpetual trophy on permanent display at the high school.
To nominate someone for a Purple Patriot Award, send a letter to the Alumni Association indicating the individual or organization's name, and indicate specifically what the benefit or service to Sequoia High School was, as well as the role the nominee or organization played in providing it to the school.
Nominations must be submitted in writing to the Sequoia High School Alumni Association, P.O. Box 2534, Redwood City, CA 94064, or placed in the Sequoia High School Alumni Association mailbox near the principal's office on campus, no later than March 8.
