When & Where
GWHS Alumni Association
We Are Eagles 4 LIFE!
The GWHS Alumni Association, founded in 1952, connects over 5,600 alumni members through the AlumniScope newsletter/emails and social media, providing news about alumni, the school, reunions and related events.
The Association bestows over 20 senior awards as well as Principal's Cups in honor of eight former Principals. GWHS' 50th anniversary fundraising created the Alumni Endowment to bestow grants for classroom supplies and activities unobtainable due to budget cutbacks. Thanks to our alumni, the Association has since established many more Endowments to benefit specific departments.
We can continue to help GWHS maintain its academic, athletic and extracurricular excellence only with the ongoing financial support of our alumni members! Visit our website and click the "Join" link to become a member, click the "Donate" links to contribute, or contact us for info.
We're so pleased with the items and experiences we'll be making available to you at the Silent Auction, and more are coming in every day. Highlights:
-- South African photo safari for two
-- Private party for up to 30 people at The Blues Jean Bar
-- Salmon River adventure for one
-- S.F. 49ers Jim Harbaugh laser-autographed football (limited edition and not available to the general public)
-- One week at a Hilton Head, S.C., vacation home for up to 4 people with golf
As of right now we're only accepting cash or check for Silent Auction winning bids, but we realize its limitations. We're working on credit card acceptance and will keep you all posted in the next few weeks.
