Students, teachers and faculty celebrated the 40th anniversary of Manzanita Elementary School during a festival at the school on Feb. 15, 2020. The school in the Catalina Foothills district opened in 1979. The celebration included a video greeting from Savannah Guthrie, a Manzanita alumnus and co-host of NBC's Today Show, as well as Frost gelato, whose co-founders Jeffrey Kaiserman and Stephen Ochoa, met in second grade at Manzanita. Another somewhat notable Manzanita alumnus is Arizona Daily Star writer, Henry Brean.
