Current Officers:  George Crawford, President;  Doug Horn, Vice President, Scholarships; Boyd Hodge, Vice President, Membership;  Albert Killian, Vice President, Special Projects;  Jane Worthington, Vice President, Public Information/Newsletter; Frank V. Jones, Treasurer, Judy Clark Myers, Fundraising Coordinator.

History:  In the year 1999, Coach Albert Killian and Margaret Askew were very instrumental in organizing the Alumni Association.  They met with the OHS Principal, who at the time was Don Roberts.  He was very supportive and with his approval they moved ahead.  The first newsletters were one page black and white publications and were mailed to a small group of members.  Over the past eight years, the organization has grown to over 2,000 members.  

Beginning in 1999 with donations from members the first two $500.00 scholarships were awarded.  In 2000 three $500.00 scholarships were awarded and beginning with the Class of 2001 the amount was increased to two $1,000.00 awards.  Since 1999 $14,500.00 has been awarded to deserving Opelika High students.  The Scholarship Committee makes the selection based on need and potential, and the support for these scholarships is totally dependent upon funds from annual dues.  The generous support of members provides for the Colonel Robert Howard and the Colonel Jim Voss scholarships each year.  Anyone interested in contributing may send a $10.00 donation each year or you may become a lifetime member by making a single donation of $100.00.  You can mail your contributions to OHSAA, P.O. Box 1636, Opelika, Al  36803.  All donations are greatly appreciated! 

If you did not receive the ALUMNI NEWSLETTER  this year, just contact us and we will mail one to you.  Our thanks to everyone for your participation.
