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!
