Third Edition: Summer 2015

"In the halls of Sam Houston, there are no strangers."

Summer Fun and Save-the-Dates!

Hello Fellow Texans,

We're back with another edition of The Alumni Spirit!

We started our second term as an official non-profit and voted in a new Executive Board, then followed up elections by having our first ever Craft and Vendor Fair. We also surpassed our goal during our second annual Winter Clothing Drive and connected former SHHS band members to support the growing Texan Alumni Band.

In May, we awarded $6,000 in scholarship money to four deserving SHHS seniors. These awards were made possible with your generous donations. Just a few weeks later, we proudly watched as our seniors graduated at UTA's College Park Center and became the second largest 2015 graduating class in AISD.

Our Summer was made even more sensational on Fourth of July weekend... for the second year in a row, we participated in the annual Arlington Fourth of July Parade! We have to thank our wonderful creative team, committee, and volunteers for all their hard work. Because of them, we placed 2nd in the Non-Commercial Category -- the largest judged category in the parade! (We were also on the front page of the Fort Worth Star Telegram!)

Now with the parade over, it's time to start planning for our next events!

  • NTX Giving Day: We are participating again in North Texas Giving Day! Save-the-date and RSVP here to learn how you can help us by donating and putting us in the running for even more awards to help the SHHS community. Every amount helps, and we will have many details coming soon!
  • Fall Fling: We will be back to J. Gilligan's in October for our Fall Fling. The Fling is a great time to hang out and reconnect with former classmates and friends, all while helping us help Texans. Mark your calendars and come out to represent your class!

Our organization is made up of former and current students, friends, family, faculty and staff. We encourage each of you to join the association and let your voices be heard.

The SHHS Alumni Association wants to thank you for your support. Above everything else, we would like you to know that you are making a difference in the lives of the students, faculty, and staff at Big Sam. We couldn't do this without you, and we look forward to having another wonderful year!

Forever Texans,

The SHHS Alumni Association Board
