Dear Viewmont Alumni

My name is Doug Smith, VHS Class of 1976. I am the current president of the official Viewmont Alumni Association, which was organized complete with bylaws in January 2009. We have had an alumni board of directors since that time, and have a mission statement which is:

 

  1. To support Viewmont High School’s tradition of excellency and commitment to lifelong learning
  2. To provide mentoring and scholarship support of current Viewmont High School students.
  3. To recognize outstanding Viewmont High School alumni by creating and maintaining a Viewmont High School Alumni Hall of Fame where Viewmont students and the Viewmont community can be inspired by those who have gone before to achieve greatness in their chosen pathways of life after Viewmonth.
  4. To keep Viewmont High School Alumni connected to Viewmont through communication about current events, facilitate Viewmont Class Reunions, connect alumni with each other as well as current students, and to support financially Viewmont High School initiatives that foster the above mentioned mission statements.

For those who many not know, Viewmont High School is halfway through a 20 million dollar upgrade and renovation. All areas of Viewmont will be enhanced, with some of the major areas listed here. Air conditioning through the building, a new technology and automotive building in the east parking lot, a two-story expansion/addition along the front of the building housing new administrative offices on the ground floor and a health education module on the second floor. There is a new cathedral ceiling media center where the automotive department used to be, and a large little theater next to that on its north side. The west hallway is expanded to create a grand entry to the school, with a lighted Viking guarding the inside southwest entrance to the school. The Counseling Center has been moved and remodeled in the former administrative office area, the boys and girls locker rooms are now side by side on the east of the gymnasium, and a new floor is being installed in the gym. The Science module is also being totally redone with new classrooms and equipment.

Through all this updating and freshening up, we as the Viewmont Alumni Association would like to create an inspiring and compelling Alumni Hall of Fame, as well as other projects through the school. This can be done through 100% tax deductible donations from the Viewmont Alumni, as well as other public and private partners. We feel if each of the 51 graduated classes from Viewmont since its fits graduating class of 1966 would contribute $2,500 per class, we could raise over $100,000 to accomplish those goals. We welcome any and all contributions of donations, ideas, gifts in kind, and service on the Alumni Board. Please see our donation page for more detailed information.

All of us have a connection to Viewmont High School, whether through our Faculty, the Athletics, Art, Dance, Music, Science, Technical, Theater, Vocational or other Departments. We also have the friendships, memories, and educations that we created and have built upon since leaving the Viewmont High school. Please make an effort to stay connected and pay it forward. Remember our creed: Always a Viking!

May you have the wind at your back as you keep rowing in life!
