First Edition: Fall 2014

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

Get Up and Give TOMORROW!

Hello Fellow Texans!

We are very excited to share our first edition of our newsletter, The Alumni Spirit! Each quarterly edition will feature upcoming projects, events, news, and happenings. Tomorrow, the SHHS Alumni Association is taking part in North Texas Giving Day. On Thursday, September 18, between 6am and midnight, please visit SHHS Alumni’s page on anytime between 6am and midnight and click “Donate Now.” Every donation of $25 and above will be amplified by $2 million in bonus funds and prizes. Proceeds from the Giving Day will go towards the “Beyond Lunch” food program at Sam Houston High School, which provides meals to economically disadvantaged students so that we level the playing field for all students. This is a huge opportunity to fund the entire year-long program in ONE DAY! 

Next month, is the 2014 Fall Fling “Fall Back in Time” Celebration on Saturday, October 11th from 7pm-Midnight at South Street Patio in Arlington. Dance to your favorite song from High School, reconnect with friends, Silent Auction, Photo Booth, and much more! Raise the roof with that Sam Houston Spirit and come celebrate with us! We will recognize the class with the most classmates in attendance so the competition is on to spread the word. Will the 90’s show up in full force? Will Class of ’75 continue to reign? Only time will tell who will represent as the Most Spirited Class of SHHS!

Do you paint? Write a book? Do you bake? Craft? Do woodworking? Do you sell something like jewelry? Mary Kay? Essential Oils? Origami Owl? Avon? Do you own a company and would rather do a business sponsorship or donate a gift certificate? We are collecting in-kind donations for the silent auction and offer great benefits for business sponsors. Will you please help? If you are interested in offering your support please contact our Social Chairman, Becky Phillips. All donations are tax deductible and we couldn’t do it without the generosity of our amazing alumni!

Lastly, we wanted to say thank you for your continued generosity and support. The energy and spirit at Sam Houston is renewed and the faculty & students are so appreciative of the many projects the alumni has undertaken. We will continue to work together to create a culture in which the power we have as individual citizens and alumni can be multiplied through collective efforts to benefit the entire Sam community. It doesn’t get any better than Texans helping Texans! We ask you to spread the word about the great things happening with the SHHS Alumni Association and at Sam Houston High School and rally your classmates, friends, and family!

Forever Texans,

The SHHS Alumni Association Board
