We depend on our other individual donors to maintain the scholarships and to expand other projects requested by the school. This year we paid for the lunches for the incoming students at the Freshman Orientation and plan to do so again this year. We look forward to participating in other school activities in the upcoming year.
Please consider joining the Alumni Association and donation fund and/or volunteering to help with some of our projects. Thank you.

Since 2011 our Western High School Pioneers Forever Alumni Association (WHSPFAA) has been awarding a $1,000 scholarship to two deserving Western High School graduates. We then follow them through their first four years of college awarding an additional $1,000 each year if they continue to meet the academic criteria. To date we have paid out $35,600.00.
This year the 2017

recipient, Andy Ho, at the
Annual Senior Awards
held at the Kennedy High
School Arts Center on April 25, 2017. Not shown is Ruthie Mendez also a 2017 recipient. Congratulations to both of them.
We are excited about our record of helping students achieve their higher education goals. If you are attending the Annual Reunion and Scholarship Fundraising Picnic you will have a chance to meet and talk to some of these recipients.
The money received from the picnic goes directly into the scholarship fund. All money received is for the students minus minimal costs for park rental, website fees, scholarship certificates, and office supplies, much of which are donated.
