Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat.
The new principal at Las Vegas High School (Ray
Ortiz) wants to scan and digitize every single yearbook starting from back in
the 1928! He graduated from the 315 S. 7th campus in 1991 and bleeds red and
black! Once completed the yearbooks would be available online for free through
the LVHS website. This project will require donations to get accomplished. The
fee to scan a single yearbook is $44. To that goal, we’ve set up this campaign
with a goal of $4,278 (including shipping charges of the books). The funds will
go to yearbookscanning.com As
soon as the goal is reached, they will initiate the digitization project, and
the flipbooks should be viewable on our site within 2-3 weeks.

program. We ask if anyone has a business and would like
to help by donating a prize from your business. You’ll

LVA LEGACY PROJECT &
- The LVHSAA is very
proud of our former president Bruce Langson (1965) who spearheaded a project to
preserve our old LVHS campus on 7th and Bridger. Bruce, along with alumni
Senator Richard Bryan (1955) and Bob Stoldal (1961) worked diligently on this
project for several years, resulting in the Clark County School District
committing $15 million toward renovation and upgrading the campus (now the Las
Vegas Academy). The Academy students love the campus as much as those of us that
attended there do, and want it maintained – not replaced!
Many thanks to those of you
