We are proud to announce the launch of our first Alumni Association financial award available to the current graduating class!
The SFHSAA Inspiration Award opened on March 2, and is a $1,000 award that recognizes not only academic excellence, but personal development and drive regarding their activities and interests during and beyond high school. The steering committee felt it important to make this available to all students no matter what their post-high school plans are; thus, instead of calling it a scholarship and making it available only to college-bound seniors, it is an award that any graduate can apply for, in order to assist them with whatever their plans are for next year.
Applicants must complete an electronic application and receive letters of recommendation, all of which are uploaded to the SFHSAA site. Applications will be taken through the last school day of March, and the award winner will be announced sometime in April.
If you are an SFHSAA member and are interested in getting involved with our scholarship efforts - to review applications, or to be on the steering committee for future awards, please get in touch with us through our Contact page.
Our first ever Alumni event - and a return to the meaning of a Homecoming game - was a success! On Friday, October 11, South alumni were invited back to their alma mater to sit field-level to watch the 2019 Homecoming Game. The War Eagles played their in-county rivals since 2009, the Lambert Longhorns. While the Longhorns led our series of competition over the years 5-4, our War Eagles defeated them soundly in a 42-17 victory, and tying up the series.
To celebrate the newly established South Forsyth High School Alumni Association, alumni were invited back to enjoy a dinner catered by local barbecue restaurant 'Cue, and to watch the game from premium seats on the track surrounding the field. They also got to watch our Homecoming parade of golf carts, decorated by some of our student organizations, as well as the Homecoming Court ceremony, which crowned our 2019 Homecoming King and Queen.
Visit our event page for the Homecoming event to see photos from the event. We also encourage you to keep tabs on our Events page for future planned events, including our Spring Alumni Gala.
Thanks to all our returning alumni who made the evening so much fun! Sorry if we missed you, and we hope you join us in the future!
With South Forsyth High School turning 30 years old this year, we thought it was a perfect time to celebrate all of the students who have come through our doors by creating an organization to keep them all connected!
We are proud to announce the launch of the South Forsyth High School Alumni Association! Our mission is to provide an avenue for our alumni to connect with each other, and to stay connected to their alma mater by encouraging them to attend alumni events, as well as donate their time, money and energy to the programs and facilities at South.
We're excited about the beginning stages of this Alumni Association, and invite you to look around our website for what we have to offer right now:
