Established in 1961, the WHS Ex-Students Association continues to be the liaison between alumni and Waxahachie High. Get involved today with a membership, t-shirt purchase, nominations and sponsorship of awards, and promotion of our numerous scholarship programs. There's no better way to show your support for the Green and White! community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers.
In 1960, Cecil Burton had the idea to put together an alumni organization that would enable WHS ex-students to reunite with classmates and revisit the old school days with each other during Homecoming weekend. Burton contacted a few of his friends, Bill and Charleene Pitts, Lillian Neal and George Brown about this idea. Through their combined efforts to maintain ties with their fellow graduates, promote school traditions and pride in the community, they gave birth to this new organization in 1961. Since then, the Waxahachie Ex-Students' Association has had over 40 presidents, and has given thousands of dollars in scholarships.

2022 is going to be a GREAT year for the your Alumni association.
In the Fall of 2021, several classes were able to once again hold reunion parties, enjoy sporting events and honor their fellow classmates. Congratulations to all our 2021 Who’s Who and Ex-Student Hall of Fame honorees.
We are looking forward to honoring 2021 WISD graduating seniors this spring. We will plan on awarding scholarships for the Ex-Students’ Association, the Athletic Hall of Fame, the Fine Arts Hall of Fame, the Dorsey family and the Brent Winn Memorial Scholarship, which was started by Steve and Rebecca Wright (Class of ’73). The WHS Ex-Student scholarship fund continues to be in good health and a huge THANK YOU to all who donate to this worthy event.
We are all looking forward to this year’s coming events. It’s time to start considering the honor class (ending in 2 or 7 this year) nominations for Who’s Who and Ex-Student Hall of Fame. Nomination forms are on the Association web page and will be due in early fall.
We encourage all our Alumni to consider joining the Association on an annual basis or even become a “Lifetime” member. As we say, “Celebrating the past, encouraging the future” and Alumni like yourself make that possible.
