The Sam Houston High School Alumni Association is providing a wonderful, truly heartfelt show of support for the students of Sam Houston High School. What started as an online/viral movement spread quickly and brought 50 years worth of alumni back to Arlington, Texas to make a plan. Many, many people stepped in, and got this non-profit rolling. As the new Board continues to work and do their best to continue the initial show of support, I'm proud to be serving alongside them. The kids at SHHS deserve this and so much more. Go Texans!

I am amazed at what our nonprofit alumni association has done for the students at Sam Houston High School. We strive to help develop well rounded students who are ready to take their place in the world. Our organization helps with a food pantry for after school, costs for winter as well as scholarships for several students each spring. Not only am I an alumnus but I am a retired teacher of the school.

The Association started out as a nonprofit on a mission to provide 2 scholarships to a couple deserving students. Since the beginning we have grown into an awesome organization providing support to not only raising funds for a couple scholarships; we funded 4 scholarships each of the past two years. Also support a food pantry within the school so students have an afternoon snack and those in need take food home for weekend meals. We have a coat/clothing drive before the winter settles in. Support the school's faculty and staff in anyway possible to do so. Provide a Christmas Turkey with all the trimmings for 100 families the past 2 years. and also assist in providing mentors to students. We also try to support the Sam Houston Community in any way possible.
