Students & Alumni in Action
It’s about connecting alumni and current WMHS students. We continually strive to be an organization that will provide support and foster learning for the Wakefield High School community for generations to come. We invite you to learn more.
About The Wakefield Memorial High School Alumni Foundation
Wakefield Memorial High School gives each student the opportunity to explore their talents and sets the foundation for their success as Thinkers, Doers, Artist, Athletes, Mentors, Leaders and Citizens. In brief, the WMHS Alumni Foundation (WMHSAF) aims to be a Partner in Education at the high school and to support students while in school.
We are really excited about this opportunity to re-commit to the WMHSAF mission. We will be focused on items that will build the foundation and assure its long term success.
As we look for opportunities to support students, our goal now is to raise $100,000 for a permanent investment fund by end of 2018, and to maintain our current operating budget.
WMHS has a long-standing tradition of excellence in academics as well as sports, the fine arts, and other extra-curricular activities. The Alumni Foundation hopes to uphold this tradition with its work. Our students need all the support we can give them to continue to be successful in high school and beyond.
