- The LVHSAA is very
proud of our 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

already purchase one, it’s not too late!

Did you know that we have a Wildcat Float??
was designed by our President Bruce Langson and built in former president Rollie
Gibbs’ workshop in 2009 by LVHS alumni from classes of 1954 through 2009. You
can see photos of it being constructed on our Photo Page! It has participated in
Helldorado Parades, Summerlin July 4 Patriotic Parades, Veterans Day Parades and
LVHS Homecoming Parades. Here is a photo of the float ready for its first
Helldorado Parade in 2009, with alumni and families that help build it! All
alumni are welcome to ride the float – it’s a lot of fun! It even “roars” as it
moves along the parade route!
The Wildcat Float needs your help!
looking for a new home for the wildcat! The float is approximately 13 feet long,
12 feet high and 10 feet wide and needs to be in a protected enclosure to avoid
the elements. We would really appreciate it if you have any space available or
have any suggestions. Please let us know. Thanks!!
