Welcome to the new website for the WHS Alumni Association!

We have kept much of the important information from our old website, expanded some of the pages, and added features that we hope you will find useful. These features include:

Class Pages - Each graduating class has its own page which can display a summary of that school year, pictures, or other information important to that class. Each page also lists a class contact and reunion information, if available.  For an example of the kind of information that could be added for you class, please visit my own Class of 1974 page. If you are interested in adding information about your class, please contact the alumni office.

Reunion Page - A listing (in reverse chronological order) of the most recent reunion information for each class that has been submitted to the alumni office.

Reunion Recaps - As part of the news page, each class can provide a recap of their recent reunion – including date, location, attendees, and photos from the event.

News of Interest to Alumni - General news that may be of interest to alumni may also be submitted to the site for publication.

We would love for you to take an active interest in the site. Please submit information about your class, your reunions, historical photos and documents, and news items that will help keep your fellow alums up-to-date on class activities.

This new site is a work in progress, and we'd love to hear your feedback. If you have a few minutes, please complete our Website Feedback Form and let us know what features you like, what features we're missing, and how we can use the website to help keep our alumni better connected. We will be working on this site over the next few months to get photos and other information added, so we thank you for your patience.

As always, thank you for your support of the WHS Alumni Association!!!

WHSAA Board President
