Letter from the President

Welcome to the Wenonah High School Grand Alumni Association, I wish to report that the outlook for the coming year is brighter than it has been for some time.  With a positive, assertive attitude, nothing can stop us. We are proud of our accomplishments in such a short period of existence.  We are making giant strides in meeting our organizational goal of making an alumnus contact list while still proceeding to support the school. Rosalind Rudolph Young pres@whsgaa.org

 
   

Objective

 
The Wenonah High School Grand Alumni Association (WHSGAA) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that embodies the spirit, knowledge and wisdom fostered by the Wenonah faculty, both old and new.  Our members reflect the values, ambitions and knowledge instilled in us by the teachers and staff of the Wenonah High School family.   It is our purpose to ensure the benefits and knowledge we received from our years at WHS are passed on to future graduates.

"The Year of the Dragon"

Celebrating 70 Years of Excellence

Wenonah Centennial Celebration (1917-2017)

Plans are currently being made to celebrate the Wenonah Community’s one hundred year commitment to educating its youth. Beginning in 1917, the Tennessee, Coal and Iron Company (TCI) began offering free schooling, from the first to ninth grade, for children of its employees. Wenonah School #1 was built and operated until it was destroyed by fire caused by a lightning strike in 1944. This led to the elementary and high schools being built, and opened in 1947. Next meeting is 6:00 pm, Thursday, September 7, 2017 at Lawson State Community College, Thelma Catlin Auditorium
