Editor's Memo - a blog
Commentary: The thrill is not gone
Commentary: Keeping reunions affordable - A good example
Commentary: How many East High alumni web sites do we need? How many is too many?
alumnus writes: "The
good ole days at East bring back so many memories. I wish more people
would put their profile in here so we
could keep up with each other. We are all getting older now
and for many of us this is the only way we ever hear from each other.
don't just read these profiles.....put yours in too!"

Do you know ...
you almost went to Prescott High School?
Feeling the East High spirit by now? Double the dose, listen to a rendition of the East High Fight song that was used in the late 1950s and throughout the 60s and into the 70s. If you know of a better arrangement which sounds more like our band played it, or have a recording of the East band playing it, please contact editor@EastHigh.org.
For many years it was hoped that someone would have film of East High in the early years to document the time long ago. Suddenly, about 12 years into the existence of The East High Alumni Page several films became available, including one that is believed to be the first day of school at East High in 1948! Through the kindness of alumni who wish to share memories of these moments with you, these films are now available for you to watch from these pages. Go to our video page to see what we've got. We should also note there are videos available from our "In the news..." page as well, but these are more recent videos about alumni.
The East High Alumni Page received the fastest and one of the most heartfelt ones when we introduced our section devoted to East Elementary School. For the first 37 years of its operation, East was home to the first through sixth grades as well as junior and senior high. Many students attended only East High for their entire primary and secondary education. There were no elementary school yearbooks in those days but sometimes there were class photos. This section relies on you very heavily for contributions of photos, facts, and memories. Take a look at our childhood years at East on our East Elementary School page.
The East High Alumni Page joins a huge majority of the school's alumni in honoring the school, its faculty and staff, and fellow alumni. It comes to mind, however, that there are some few associated with East who stand out even from this august history, those who have achieved and excelled beyond the norm even among our prominent fellows, and those who gave their lives in military service to the United States of America. For these special honors, we have pages in recognition of their contributions. Please visit our Hall of Honor and our Military Memorial.
East High Sports Championships
While the purpose of East High School has been the education of pupils in behavior and academics, athletics have been a big part of the student body experience. Many fine athletes have attended East. Here we recognize some of the people and teams who won State Championships (or finished as runner-up). See the list.
