WGHS ALUMNI ASSOCIATION NEWS UPDATE
Watkins High School Alumni Association News
12 years ago the Alumni Association was formally incorporated. Its mission: to provide Scholarships to graduating students, to honor Distinguished Alumni and to support the continuance of the annual Alumni Banquet. This year we awarded a total of $6000 to 5 graduating seniors (a total of $53,300 to date), honored our 16th Distinguished Alumnus and oversaw an Alumni Banquet that included 240
attendees that had a great meal, a good time and enjoyed the opportunity to reconnect with former classmates and teachers!
We are proud of our accomplishments. However, none of it could have occurred without the help and financial support of previous graduates of Watkins High.
The membership of the Association is crucial to what we do. At this time we have 196 paid members. We hope to bring that number to 250 at least. The annual dues are $25 and used almost exclusively for Scholarships. The Association Board consists of volunteers and we keep operational costs to a minimum!
Please go to our website watkinsglenalumni.org to find a membership application form, or simply send a check for $25 to WG Alumni Assoc., 301 12th St, Watkins Glen, NY 14891 with a note that it is for membership and please note your class graduation year.
While on the website, browse through the photos and info on our yearly scholarship recipients. They have made us all proud. Then allow yourself to be amazed while browsing through the outstanding accomplishments of our 16 Distinguished Alumni.
We think you will be pleased, either as Watkins Alumni or simply as community residents, to see what your Watkins High School Alumni Association stands for.
Please join us in our efforts! Become a member! Join Now.
