You mean to say that a high school, this high school -- Washington-Lee -- has an alumni association?
Yes it does ... an alumni association is not just for colleges any more. You will be pleasantly surprised to discover how active this association is in keeping that General spirit alive. As of Summer 2010, we now have had 85 graduating classes, from the smallest of 1926 (also the first class, with a single graduate) to our largest, 1955 (913, with class president Warren Beatty leading the way). That adds up more than 35000 students passing through these halls in those eight decades. With the new building opening for business in January 2008 (the third incarnation of W-L), students will keep passing through these halls for decades to come.
The W-L Alumni Association was formed by a nucleus of people involved with the 75th anniversary celebration at W-L, in 1999. Over the intervening years, the momentum has built and the W-L Alumni Association has become a vital member of the W-L community.
The mission of the Alumni Association is to keep W-L alums connected to each other and to the current school as best as possible. Some of the activities we are involved with:
