The Lakewood High School (LHS) Alumni Association, formed in 1992, provides annual scholarships to graduating seniors and funds to help high school projects. Membership in the LHS Alumni Association is open to all former graduates, attendees, and educators.
Last year, the Alumni Association raised close to $27,000 and awarded 24 scholarships, ranging from $200 to $2500. Former graduates, such as the Friedlander Family, Dale Reese Foundation, and the Rotary contribute annually to the scholarships. Nancy Rogers, the Alumni Association president, says, “I remember our first year. We gave one scholarship for $250!”
