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 high school was only in existence for a mere 22 years. Twenty-two. Amazing. Years. Our parents and faculty--indeed, our whole community--produced an outstanding collection of entrepreneurs and leaders among our graduates and we continue that course, today, through our children and grandchildren.
Sadly, our school's alumni membership will shrink with time, but we hope that our achievements will not 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 might continue to 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 preserving the history and good name of this great school! ~Terry
To family and friends of FHHS who wish to join our alumni association: in order to expedite the verification process, please have a current registered alumni or faculty member sponsor your membership by emailing, on your behalf, your name and contact information to the website administrator. Thank you!
