About

The Hutchinson High School Alumni Association (HHSAA)

The HHSAA has had various forms in the past, but was reorganized in the fall of 1990 and continues to this day. Since that time, the organization has played an important role in preserving HHS history, facilitating reunion planning, honoring outstanding graduates and contributing tens of thousands of dollars toward underfunded initiatives at HHS.

Examples of HHSAA efforts include: 

Reunion Planning

Alumni Database Administration

Wall of Honor Co-Sponsorship

HHSAA Website

Other Alumni Resources

Preservation of HHS History

Financial Grants for HHS Projects

Newsletter Publication

HHS Advocacy in our Community

And Much More...


   

Strong Alumni Base

Several thousand active supporters of the HHSAA span nearly 80 graduating classes and can be found in all 50 states and several foreign countries. Our database contains contact information for nearly 17,000 graduates. 

Not-for-Profit-Status

All contributions and charitable gifts to our not-for-profit organization are fully tax-deductible. Assets are held in a donor-advised fund at the Hutchinson Community Foundation. Our basic membership is $20 per year, our Super-Salthawk level is only $50 per year, and our Lifetime membership is a one-time gift of $500. 89% of all HHSAA funds raised go to either college scholarships for students or special project grants to HHS teachers.
