go warriors! aloha high school opportunity fund​

We invite you to join us (class of ’70 and ’71), in networking with other alumni to build the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund! The original alumni classes have now been joined by more than eight classes and the community.

To celebrate our 45th and 44th reunion, we established the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund! It will award grants through the Beaverton Education Foundation to small non athletic student groups (8 or more) with seed money and fund optional class activities in a wide range of areas. The fund will pool the resources of all alumni classes and the Aloha community to encourage initiative, planning, budgeting, problem solving, project execution and delivery. It will be used to stimulate student interest in exploring career and personal development.

Why build an endowment fund?

Traditionally endowment funds established by alumni were in the domain of private high schools. Recent news has focused on family income demographics of current students and educational funding cutbacks. Our effort will help change the current perception with a permanent resource and is a great way to let current and future students know that we care and consider them to be our most valuable asset as it was in the past!

The goal is to reach an initial minimum of $25,000 (which is within $5,000 of being met) with a stretch goal of $50,000 to become a permanent endowment fund which grows and awards funds year after year. For more information contact AHS7071@gmail.com.

Now the BEF Beaverton's Choice Project link https://www.beavertonedfoundation.org/beavertons-choice/ will immediately update the fund total and send a receipt reflecting your gift.

We also have an AHS 50th Anniversary Celebration video posted on Youtube - - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUkGEWOr2Rs with event pictures/videos. The event was well received and had over 300 alumni, staff, and community members attend.

If you are interested in participating in career day activities, job shadow or related activities send an email with your contact information to: ahswarrior.alumni@gmail.com

Looking forward to following up with Matt Casteel and LaKisha Clark soon on student projects and vocational activities.

Active advertising on Facebook and email to class reunion leaders continued through Sept.. Current goals for this calendar year: Endowment Fund $35,000 and Term Current Fund $3000.

Go Warriors! encourages gifts throughout the calendar year but limits active campaigns from June through Sept.
