About this Event

FOGHS - Friends of Gbalatuah High School.

William R. Tolbert Jr. & Sr. High School Alumni Association.

This event is sponsored by graduates, former students and friends to raise money to help meet the needs of our alma mater William R. Tolbert Jr. & Sr. High School aka Gbalatuah Jr. & Sr. High School located in Gbalatuah, Bong County Liberia, West Africa.

With the burning desire of Mrs. Victoria Tolbert(wife of President William R. Tolbert Jr.) to educate unprivileged children of Liberia, the school was constructed with the assistance of government officials, the business community and foreign dignitaries and donors. The school was also named after the 45th President William R. Tolbert Jr.

In the late 1970s and 1980s William R. Tolbert Jr. & Sr. High School was considered one of the most prestigious schools in the country. It was the choice of many parents to educate their children.

During the civil war in Liberia the school was completely destroyed, everything was lost. After the war ended the school have been reopened and the rebuilding have started. We want to extend our thanks and appreciation to the Liberian government, the business community and foreign donors for their contributions.

We the alumni, former students and friends of the school have decided to come together under the name FOGHS, Friends of Gbalatuah High School aka The Alumni Association of the school to give back to their alma mater.

It is clear we can't take on this challenge alone, that's why we are sponsoring many events like our reunion to help raise money to help meet the needs of our school.

Your support and partnership will make a huge difference in the lives and future of the students. Please help us today and together it will be done.

Thank you for your support.
