Western High School
TheWestern High School Alumni Association (WHSAA) was formed in 1987 under the name Western-Ellington Alumni Association. The name was changed in 2007 after the Ellington school formed its own alumni organization.
An incorporated, not-for-profit association WHSAA strives to preserve the spirit and memories of The Western High School and its many alumni.
Its functions include encouraging alumni support for maintenance and preservation of the old schoool building, locating and keeping in touch with former students,
holding various alumni functions and aiding class members with reunions.
The database of WHSAA currently contains records of almost
14,000 alumni. We try to keep in touch through our
newsletter sent to paid members by either e-mail or regular mail. WHSAA keeps information
confidential, although the association, at the discretion of
its Board, will provide mailings appropriate to alumni interests, such as
class reunions and other functions.
The board welcomes help from volunteers for the association's many activities, which,
in addition to assisting in the search for alumni include:
A quarterly newsletter, which reports on developments of interest to Western High alumni.
Its photographs and articles bring accounts of planned reunions, alumni memories of school days,
and descriptions of the remarkable achievements by alumni since their days at Western.
The collection and preservation of
Western-Ellington memorabilia, yearbooks, photos, and documents.
