Be the difference in the academic and cultural enrichment of the students at South by supporting the Friends of South High Foundation!
The Friends of South High Foundation is one of the first and oldest High School nonprofit support organizations in the country. Established in 1983 by then-Principal George Dahl, Assistant Principal Jerry Cady, and alum Dick Westby, the South High Foundation provides unique and enriching academic, cultural and social programs and projects serving South High students, faculty, administration, and community.
With over 13,000 active alumni, parents, friends and corporate sponsors; the Foundation focuses each year on providing over $120,000 of grant funding for various South High School programs and projects, ranging from supplies in the Media Center, support for the theater and band programs, computers for the foreign language department, supplemental funding for various athletic programs, and capital improvement projects including improvements to the South High Athletic Field. In addition, the Foundation annually provides nearly $100,000 in scholarships for worthy seniors and graduates of South High. The Foundation also serves as a connection to the large South High alumni community through its Alumni Lunches, Newsletters, and our annual Pancake Breakfast and Spaghetti Dinner.
