Hello, Blue Bombers!
Your Alumni Association is in the process of re-forming.
We’ve been working hard to re-tool our Mission Statement as well. If you were unable to attend our two General meetings this year, we’re happy to share some good news: Two Alums have stepped up and applied for Board seats. Also, we are excited to share the revised Mission Statement with you.
The East High School Alumni Association Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a platform to preserve the legacy of East High School, Cleveland, Ohio. To that end we are committed to helping our members remain connected to the School and each other through regular social, civic and community events. . We understand the importance of educating the youth of our future. Our goal is to help them obtain an education which will give them the knowledge and skills necessary for improving their lives and their communities. We will provide scholarships for college/post high school education to graduated Cleveland Metropolitan School Students, residing in Cleveland, Ohio, as we receive and disburse funds from annual memberships dues, from scholarship dinners, and from bequests, gifts, or grants from persons, firms or corporations, or other organizations.
