Traditionally, graduating seniors are asked to join the GWHS Alumni Association at a big discount off the normal Life Member fee - and a lot did, in the '60s, '70s and '80s...then, for a couple of reasons, the number of seniors who joined slowed to a crawl (with the exception of '06) until the 2010s. In fact, alums from '10 to '19 now make up over a quarter of our membership. But that means that a big part of Wash House isn't represented!
If you think social media is enough to stay in touch with your classmates and former teachers, we have one word for you: MySpace.
What you get for your one-time Life Member fee: 1) Alumni news by mail (2x/year), email (~8x/year) or both; 2) your membership enables us to provide reunion committees with more accurate class lists; and 3) you'll feel good about giving back - our funds go to classroom supplies, student activities and scholarships. That's it, there is no requirement for deeper involvement or more giving unless you want to.
We Are Eagles For Life. Thank you!
