Mission Statement



 The Western High School Pioneers Forever Alumni Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization composed of Western High School graduates dedicated to encouraging alumni involvement to aid current students through fundraising for scholarships and other school-related projects. We have established this organization to:  

  • locate, track and communicate with all of the alumni to encourage their participation. 
  • provide scholarships to a minimum of two current graduating Western High School students each year. To follow the scholarship recipients progress and offer them additional scholarships after a yearly review. These additional scholarships are to be given out yearly for a maximum of three additional years. And, to work with Western High School officials to ensure that said scholarships are given fairly to worthy students. 
  • provide other unique projects for Western High School students. We will work with Western High School officials to accomplish these goals.
