Answer the call for pride and support in your Alma Mater– join your High School Alumni organization today!
In October 2017, Bradley/Cleveland Public Education Foundation began working with the three local high schools - Bradley Central High School (BCHS), Cleveland High School (CHS), and Walker Valley High School (WVHS) - to develop an alumni association at each school.
BCHS saw its first seniors - 8 of them in total - graduate in 1917. CHS’s first graduating class was the Class of 1967, making their 50th reunion the fall of 2017. While WVHS is a much newer school (it’s first graduates were the class of 2001), the spirit of school pride is every bit as strong as its older rivals.
With senior classes at each school averaging over 400 students in recent years, there are endless possibilities for alumni to become involved with their alma mater. Said David Beckler, a founding member of the CHS Alumni Association and a graduate of the Class of 1967, “Giving back to one’s alma mater helps the students see the pride those who came before them had for giving back to their community.”
