Friends of Manual

Friends of Manual High School is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the academic achievement and overall experience of students at Manual. Friends of Manual was started a decade ago by a group of alumni committed to public education in Denver. This dedicated group finds ways to positively connect with their Alma matter.


Thunderbolt Family: it’s with a broken heart we announce one of our most treasured alumni and school historian has passed. Mr. Al Schegelberger, MHS ‘60 has passed on April 6, 2020. His bright smile and stories of manual history will be sorely missed. A tribute will be planned by the Friends of Manual. Please share your memories on their fb page or via email.
