OUR VISION

It was not from our differences, but from the traditions that we have in common, that gave birth to the Weequahic High School Alumni Association in 1997 – a unique opportunity to bring people together - people who seemed so far apart yet who have shared something significant and precious: their lives were shaped in their Weequahic years.


OUR GOALS

To recapture the spirit and memories of Weequahic High School that was so meaningful to many of us.

To transcend the generational and cultural differences spanning nine decades from 1933 to the present by bringing together our graduates, teachers, administrators and friends for reunions and special events.

To remember and honor those Weequahic High School graduates and staff who have made important contributions to the high school and our larger community.

To utilize the resources of our alumni to support the current students at Weequahic High School through scholarships, activities, tutoring, mentoring, cultural event  and job opportunities.
