Our Mission The purpose of the association is to promote a "mass" class reunion every 5 years. The reunion is held at the start of each decade and the fifth year thereof. As an offshoot of the reunion, the excess funds are contributed to the Shirley Fries Alumni Scholarship Fund. This fund is maintained by our organization which presents a yearly $3,000 scholarship to a graduate from the senior class of LAHS. For the 2017 scholarship recipient click the Scholarship button. We are a non-profit corporation. Any contributions towards our scholarship fund are fully tax deductible. Our status may be checked at the NM Attorney General's web site.

The Class of 1988 is planning a 30th Reunion to be this summer.
Dennis Smith (Class of 1960) passed away November 23, 2017. Dennis created the LAHS website and maintained it efficiently for nearly 20 years. Since 1990 he helped organize the Multi-Class Reunions with his advanced computer skills. Dennis posted links to the most current websites and stayed in touch with experts on Los Alamos' early years. After completing a lengthy process to set up the nonprofit corporation in 2002, lots of money has been saved.
Denny devoted time to keep the Shirley Fries Alumni Scholarship going, connect LAHS grads through the e-mail lists, and assisted individual classes with their Reunions. He spent hours each week researching and recording the dates of individuals' deaths which comforts family and friends as they remember lost loved ones. Denny could figure out how to fix every computer crisis.
Den will be remembered for making life more fun and taking time to be a good friend. He had become the driving force for the Alumni Committee. We will miss him and plan to have this website, the Reunions and the Scholarship go on and on.
