ALUMNI ASSOCIATION HISTORY
Forty some years after Yorktown High School opened its
doors as the "New School" in September 1960, a small group of alumni, parents
and faculty incorporated the Alumni & Friends of Yorktown High School, Inc. as a
Virginia non-profit corporation.
We started corporate existence in mid December of 1999, and
have been meeting regularly to build the foundation to enable this service organization to
become a reality. Our Articles of Incorporation explain our reason for being best:
The Corporation is to be a membership organization whose
purpose is to develop alumni support of Yorktown High School, its alumni, faculty and
current students through reunions, scholarships, career development, and other special
activities. All such purposes shall at all times be exclusively for charitable, religious,
educational and scientific purposes, including, for such purposes, the making of
distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section
501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or the corresponding section of any future federal
Whether youre an Alumnus/a of Yorktown, just went to
YHS for a few years, are a current or former member of the faculty or staff or just a
neighbor or local business servicing the Yorktown Community interested in supporting the
school, we consider you part of the Yorktown Community.
To get involved in this all volunteer effort, and help us
make some real history, please drop us a note about your interest in volunteering at our
permanent mailing address listed below. We had to remove our longstanding admin eddress
because of spam.
