Welcome to the South Park Alumni Association
Classmates, the South Park High School Alumni Association has a rich history of supporting students, fellow classmates and graduates and the community since 1919. For the past 8 months, a small group of volunteers has been working to revitalize the Association and regain the momentum of our past.
To do this, we have launched this new webpage and are building other social media platforms to facilitate communication with our classmates. Our intent is to post information on Alumni events, reunions, businesses, and other classmate-related activities.

Some of the assistance we offer is called “Ginger’s Help” as a tribute to Ginger Parker, Class of 1942, who led the effort to keep track of our classmates beginning with the Class of 1915.
As a starting point, the process consists of an on-line spreadsheet for a (your) specific class-year with names, addresses and other information annotated since graduation to assist your committee in planning, locating and updating classmates.
There is more to it of course and we can also help with tips in locating classmates, notification ideas and other planning considerations.
Interested Committees should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
Attention: Reunion Committees were here to help you plan
We also work with all reunion committees to help them get their individual class reunions off the ground. We can print any flyers or advertisement for class reunions. If their mailing qualifies, reunion planners can also utilize our non-profit bulk permit to save a substantial amount of postage. If you are interested in getting your reunion off the ground or joining an established reunion committee contact us at SouthParkAlumniAssociation@gmail.com and we will get you started.

The Alumni Association is pleased to announce that in 2022 we have located the next of kin for fallen warrior classmates, and presented their New York State Conspicuous Service Cross to 44 of our fallen classmates.
This increases our presentation total to 103 families of the 130 we were able to obtain the medals for.
Plans are in progress to display the remaining medals at South Park to honor their service and sacrifice as well as inspire the future.
We have participated in a nationwide effort to honor World War II fallen, "Stories Behind The Stars" initiative.
Part of Together We Served and Fold 3, South Park's WWII classmates stories are available via smartphone at their place of rest. More to follow on this.
Read more about them in the Fallen Warrior section.
