Coach Ray Fenton to speak at the Los Alamitos Chamber Networking Luncheon on April 6, 2023

Please join the Los Alamitos Area Chamber of Commerce for their April Networking Luncheon on Thursday, April 6, 2023 from 12-1:30 p.m. at Epson America, 3131 Katella Avenue, Los Alamitos.

The guest speaker will be coach Ray Fenton with a discussion on team building.

Ray Fenton has over thirty-plus years of high school coaching experience. His high school coaching career started at River Valley High School in Mohave Valley, Arizona. After a successful run and completely turning around the Dust Devils program, he headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. In Las Vegas, Ray Fenton opened a new school in the Henderson area named Foothill. At Foothill, Ray was able to lead the Falcons to being a top-10 team in the nation. While he was at Foothill, he won countless awards, including the Nevada State Coach of the Year. In addition to just coaching, Ray also won the Heroism award from the Clark County School District after showing great courage in a bus accident after a game.

At the peak of his success in Las Vegas, his alma mater, Cypress High School, had a job opening. Seeing it as his opportunity to come home, he accepted the job with the Centurions. Ray moved back to California and led Cypress to a CIF championship in 2007. Due to a budget crisis in the Anaheim Union High School District, Ray left Cypress and eventually found his way to Fountain Valley High School. Ray coached the Barons for three years before replacing the legendary John Barnes at Los Alamitos High School. With his short time with the Griffins, he has led them to two Sunset League titles and to the CIF Semi Finals.

The cost is $25 for pre-paid members and members of the military or $30 at the door and for non-members. Please pre-pay online at www.losalchamber.org.
