As some of you may already know, the Yokota High School Alumni Association (YHSAA) was formed back in the late 80's early
90's. Peggy Arp '80 started the alumni assn. and has been the President since its inception. In the early 90's her brother
Timothy Arp '82 passed away of a heart attack at his home in Dallas. Since this time, Peggy, understandably took a less active
role in the Alumni Association to try and cope with the loss. The Alumni Assn. has been somewhat dormant for almost 10 years.
I recently met with Peggy and have accepted the role/duties as President of the YHSAA. I have visited the alumni websites
of other Far East high schools, and believe that as YHS pride and tradition dictates, we can and will be the #1 Alumni Assn.and
Unlike other Alumni Associations that have yearly dues, the YHSAA will be offering life time memberships for about $20.
You do not have to be a graduate of YHS to be a member, but you must have attended YHS. Access to the website
(now the "Official" YHSAA website) is currently free of charge to view and will remain free. I have and currently maintain
and pay for the website myself, and will continue if needed.
As a YHSAA member you will receive the following:
Listing as a YHSAA Life Member;
Discount registration fee for YHSAA sponsored reunions;
Panther On-line Store Discounts;
access to members only area of website;
web Newsletters and more.
Memebrship fees will be used for:
Here are just a few;
Website expansion and monthly fees;
flowers for YHS Alumni funerals;
upfront cost of Reunions;
postage/phone, stationary, etc.;
placing 1973-2004 yearbooks on website;
and other incidentals and cost.
