GOLDEN GRADS

The Golden Grads program is offered to the classes celebrating the fiftieth year since they graduated. The school honors them by hosting a lunch catered by the school chef and students. This is where they also size the attendees with gold colored caps and gowns. Then on the night of graduation, the attendees met in a designated green room to put on the caps and gowns and are honored with a walk to the field along with the graduating seniors. If you are from the class being honored this year (1974) please contact us or the school to get your name and address so they can acknowledge this with an official invitation to the festivities.

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.


If you didn’t already purchase one, it’s not too late!

DONATIONS OF SUPPLIES FOR NEEDY STUDENTS
LVHS is a Title 1 school with a high percentage of students from low-income families below the poverty level.Many of the LVHS staff members personally provide school supplies and food for some of their students. The school has established a Donation Center to collect supplies to help the needy students, and the LVHSAA provided funds to purchase storage supplies to house the donated items. If you would like to help by donating non-perishable food, clothing, school supplies, etc., contact us at lvhsaamain02@gmail.com

VISIT THE “OLD” CAMPUS!
Check out the Senior Squares monument– created by the LVHSAA and funded by alumni donations to replace the Senior Squares.

Check out the LVHS memorabilia display in the beautiful cabinet donated by the LVHSAA and built by our Historian Joe Thomson. It is just inside the front entrance of the main building. The Academy welcomes visitors to stop by to see the memorabilia any time. The memorabilia is changed every few months and usually displays memorabilia from classes having significant reunions in any given year.

If you have anything you would like to display (you can either donate or loan to us), such as class rings, letter jackets or sweaters, or anything that will bring back memories from your years at LVHS, please let us know at lvhsaamain02@gmail.com
