to The East High Alumni Page. Graduates, students who spent several
years there but are not graduates of East, and current and former
faculty are not only invited to check on old friends, memories of our
high school and on current news of East, but to submit their own
profiles, addresses, pictures, memories and class reunion information.
A plan to transition East High from a traditional high school into an optional only STEM focused high school is underway. Many details, as they are available, are provided on The East High Alumni Page. We are aggregating all the significant stories on a special East STEM page.

East High Athletic Championships -
The athletic director at East High is attempting to identify
championships won by East High athletic teams and individuals during
its history. If you were a member, or coached, a championship team, let
us know and we will compile a list and forward it to the athletic
director. District, City, Regional, State and other championships are
welcome and information as to the sport (i.e. women's track), level
(senior/junior high), and year of championship is needed. You may
e-mail the information to editor@EastHigh.org.
(We know about the TSSAA list of state championships, but personal
confirmation or correction of that information is welcome.)

Historic Film of East & East Activities
For many years it was hoped that someone would have film of East High
in the early years to document the time long ago. Suddenly, about 12
years into the existence of The East High Alumni Page several films
became available, including one that is believed to be the first day of
school at East High in 1948! Through the kindness of alumni who wish to
share memories of these moments with you, these films are now available
for you to watch from these pages. Go to our video
to see what we've got. We should also note there are videos
available from our "In the news...
" page as
well, but these are more recent videos about alumni.
East Elementary School
The East High Alumni Page received the fastest responses and one of the most
heartfelt ones when we introduced our section devoted to East
Elementary School. For the first 37 years of its operation, East was
home to the first through sixth grades as well as junior and senior
high. Many students attended only East High for their entire primary
and secondary education. There were no elementary school yearbooks in
those days but sometimes there were class photos. This section relies
on you very heavily for contributions of photos, facts, and memories.
Take a look at our childhood years at East on our East Elementary School page
The East High Alumni Page joins a huge majority of the school's alumni
in honoring the school, its faculty and staff, and fellow alumni. It
comes to mind, however, that there are some few associated with East
who stand out even from this august history, those who have achieved
and excelled beyond the norm even among our prominent fellows, and
those who gave their lives in military service to the United States of
America. For these special honors, we have pages in recognition of
their contributions. Please visit our Hall
and our Military Memorial
While the purpose of East High School has been the
education of pupils in behavior and academics, athletics have been a
big part of the student body experience. Many fine athletes have
attended East. Here we recognize some of the people and teams who won
State Championships (or finished as runner-up). See
