Oconee County High Schools Alumni Association Seeks Members

.

By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc

.

In 2004, a visionary and energetic group of graduates of Oconee High Schools organized an alumni group.   It is Oconee County High Schools Alumni Association, Inc. (OCHSAA).The group has constructed a Web Site that is still seeking information. http://ochsaa.com/

.

OCHSAA is working on a data base of all graduates of all public high schools in Oconee County.Pictures are also wanted.   The big job is to develop a mailing list of correct names and addresses.  Old school records listed all graduates alphabetically and not by year.That complicates the effort to develop a mailing list.

.

OCHSAA’s mission statement includes promoting the legacy of Oconee County Schools and fellowship among the alumni.  The group sponsored the Oconee 2007 Teacher of the Year Dinner and plans to expand on that.   Teachers need all the recognition and appreciation we can give them.  

.

All Oconee Alumni were recognized at the OCHS Homecoming game this year.   OCHSAA was also discussed at the Annual OCHS Alumni Banquet in June and at the Bogart Alumni Luncheon.   Class reunions are encouraged.Class contact persons are needed by OCHSAA.

.

More activities, including scholarships, are in the works.   We can expect more and more from this group.

.

It only costs $0.00 a year to join.An Application for membership can be completed online at the OCHSAA website.See link below.

.

The current officers and directors names appear below.Any of them would be glad to discuss OCHSAA with any interested alumni.

The Oconee County High Schools Alumni Association (OCHSAA) was formed in June 2004 for the purpose of supporting the academic excellence, best interests and traditions of Oconee County Public Schools.  Its mission is to promote and facilitate the development of programs of enhanced fellowship among alumni and to ensure that an annual meeting of the Association will occur.

The Association promotes the continuation of annual reunions of the earlier high schools such as those held by the Watkinsville and Bogart schools that closed in 1956, as well as individual class reunions.  Equally important, however, is its goal of honoring the “Education Legacy” of Oconee County by supporting the system today.

To do that we will need all alumni from Oconee County High Schools to help with this effort.  The Executive Committee is developing the goals and the approach to accomplishing this agenda, including:

  • developing a mailing list of all alumni
  • hosting a focus group to obtain broad-based input
  • developing a website
  • meeting with key education officials of Oconee County.

In order to accomplish these goals, we ask that you join the Association and be an active participant.  Your membership will allow us to communicate with you and your annual dues of $0 per person will help with the Association’s expenses (i.e., stamps and website).  We have included an application for membership.  Please join the OCHSAA by returning your application by June 1, 2007.
