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 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.
Please help if you can. Every donation makes a difference.
$44 digitizes a single yearbook
$176 digitizes four yearbooks
$440 digitizes a decade's yearbooks
But any other amount is welcome!
Thank you so much and have a wonderful holiday season!

Helping the alumni association and getting write offs.
As most of you know, there is a brick and mortar 501(c)3 non-profit known as the Las Vegas High School Alumni Association. Annually, we host a Wildcat Reunion at the Orleans Hotel. During that reunion, we have a raffle to raise funds for the scholarship program. We ask if anyone has a business and would like to help by donating a prize from your business. You’ll get your name in front of alumni and a write off as well (PM me for a PDF of our non-profit status). You can also email us at:


Thanks to alumni donations, we have several yearbooks (different grad years) available for a minimum donation of $50 to our scholarship fund. If you are looking for a yearbook, please send an email to and we will let you know what is available.


The next Wildcat reunion will be held October 14, 2023. Invitations are sent out annually in June or July. If we do not have your physical address you will not receive an invitation to this event. Please email and add your address to our list.

LVA LEGACY PROJECT & LEGACY PLAQUES - 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 that purchased legacy plaques or pavers, which helped fund for the recent renovation of the old auditorium on the corner of 9th and Clark. Click thumbnails below for larger images.
