about the alumni association

The Alumni Association is a dedicated group of former students who generously offer their time, expertise, and energy. Our primary goal is to strengthen the bond among alumni and contribute to the betterment of our alma mater. We firmly believe that, with our extensive membership, we have the power to enact positive changes, reinstating our esteemed high school to its former glory and reinstilling the pride we once felt as students.

Through various forms of support, such as academic assistance, involvement in sports events, and personal development programs, we aim to not only reinvigorate the pride of our fellow alumni but also enhance the experience of current students. By offering mentorship opportunities, financial aid, and our active presence, we envision transforming Smith High School into the leading educational institution in our city.
