All-Class Reunion for 2014!
The Alumni Association is proud to announce that our All-Class Reunion for this year will be the weekend of July 25, July 26 and July 27, 2014. Every alumni, student, graduate, and faculty member of FHHS is invited to join together again this summer to celebrate our time at the old school! If you missed last year’s amazing event, now is your chance to make up for it!
Events will take place throughout the weekend, so plan to come early and stay late! Most events are free again this year, but the Association will rely on your generosity to help us fund the party at the park as well as contribute to our scholarship fundraising for West Potomac High School seniors with financial needs.

“From the Hearts of the Federals to the Students of Today”
In June of 2013, the Fort Hunt High School Alumni Association awarded its first annual FHHS Alumni Educational Award to a deserving, college-bound West Potomac High School student, Anna Soyka. Anna was headed to James Madison University and was the lucky recipient of our very FIRST award.
This June 16th, three (3) West Potomac High School students were presented FHHSAA Education Awards:
- Briana Simone Dessaure – Headed to University of South Carolina
- Shelbi Pullen – Attending Christopher Newport University in the fall
- William K. Lescher, Jr. - University of Pennsylvania
This awards program is sponsored by the Fort Hunt Federals, through their generous donations. The money is from the hearts of the Federals to the students of today.
On page 9 of the Mount Vernon Gazette, July 10, 2014:
To Fort Hunt High School alumni, faculty and staff, family members, and friends:
Although our beloved high school is renamed and repurposed, FHHS will exist forever in our hearts and minds. We represent our old alma mater through our communal thoughts and memories; collectively reconstructing an institution stronger than the physical structure could ever be.
Our school was only in existence for a mere 22 years. Twenty-two. Amazing. Years. Our parents and faculty--indeed, our whole community--produced an oustanding collection of entrepreneurs and leaders among our graduates and we continue that course, today, through our children and grandchildren.
Sadly, however, our school's alumni numbers will shrink with the sands of time, but our achievements should not fade or be forgotten. By welcoming family and friends of FHHS as members of our association, we enable our legacy to live on through those who share our vision. In particular, community programs and sponsorship awards, that we establish and maintain, will have an opportunity to continue and possibly even grow and flourish. Indeed, the Federals' spirit will live on through this alumni association!
Please join me in welcoming all members who have chosen to participate in nurturing the history of this great school! ~Terry
