English High School Launches “The Great Missing Alumni Hunt”

America’s Oldest Public High School Seeks 9,000 Alums as It Nears 200th Birthday


There are 9,000 people missing!

But there’s no need for the authorities to issue any missing person reports or all-points bulletins, or post flyers in the Post Office.

As The English High School Association gears up to celebrate the school’s 200th birthday on October 2 (a virtual event), the group is using the milestone to update contact information and reconnect with those who have fallen off the rolls of America’s oldest public high school.

Thomas is asking anyone who graduated from English High School, and anyone related to or friendly with alumni to tell them about the 200th birthday and to forward their contact info. “Our goal is to dramatically improve our records. Good data makes alumni engagement more successful. That can result in recruitment of new Board members and mentors for current students, and to motivate donors to support our scholarship fund.

EHS proudly continues its tradition of producing new generations of men and women of ‘honor and achievement’ – with an unwavering commitment to linking the children of Boston’s working families to all the promises that America offers, Thomas says.

“Lost” EHS Alumni who want to connect with the school are asked to visit the Association’s website: englishhighalumni.org to submit their contact information and learn more about upcoming events.

Those who do not use the internet or email are welcome to call or mail in their information: 857-547-1391 – 980-990 Washington St., Suite 200, Dedham, MA 02026
