history of the HPhs alumni association
The HPHS Alumni Association was established and tasked with gathering information for an alumni directory and pursuing the newly established goals.
The founding Board of Directors:
Art Barnes ’51
Jennifer Phillips Carter ’78
Dick Dwelle ’39
Mary Glen Joy Fouts ’62
Guy Kerr ’71
Patrick Nugent ’88
Also in 1990, the Alumni Association took over organizing and executing the annual Distinguished Alumni Awards.
The Golden Scots Luncheon was started to honor Alumni who have graduated from HPHS 50 years or more.
The Alumni Association merged with the Highland Park Education Foundation to form a single organization serving the needs of students, alumni, parents, and friends of the school district. This merger allows both groups to maximize their talents and budgets.
