Note From Advisory Board Member
When I started with the Alumni organization, I never realized what a dedicated group of people who give so much of their time, talent and expertise to keeping the Alumni Rally, Newspaper and classmates so
connected. This year we are celebrating 87 years having a rally. There is no other Alumni in the United States who can beat this accomplishment. Within those 87 years, we have seen many changes. The biggest this year is the discontinuation of the Alumni Newspaper. It seems communication in today’s world exists with Facebook, Twitter, Skype, E-mails to name a few. We still want and need your stories as the Alumni has developed a website: https://www.kaukaunaalumni.com. This website will be
continually up-dated. So, please take time to send us some information for the sight. What an easy way
to see what is happening with your classmates (and other alumni classes), changes and up-dates at
Kaukauna High School and the City of Kaukauna in its growth.
Stay “KAUKAUNA STRONG”
