Are you a Lifetime Member?

We hope that if you are an SPHS graduate, that you are a Lifetime Member. If not, please considering joining us as a Lifetime Member for the one time cost of just $25.The one-time membership fee helps the SPHS Alumni Association continue to award scholarships to deserving graduating SPHS seniors to attend institutions of higher learning. Currently, the Alumni Association awards a total of approximately $35,000 per year in scholarships to SPHS graduates. We can only continue this level of giving with your help. Lifetime Memberships make great gifts for family or friends who are also SPHS graduates. Memorial Memberships are also available. Donations are always welcome from the public at large.

One of the perks of Lifetime Membership in the SPHS Alumni Association is the ability to purchase your yearbook for the cost of just $15, which includes shipping. Because of the limited number of yearbooks, they are made available only to Lifetime Members. We have yearbooks dating back to the first graduating class of 1910. So if you have lost or damaged your yearbook, or if you never had one, you can order the yearbook (only one per Lifetime Member) before they are out of stock.

If you would like to purchase a yearbook and are unsure if you or a family member pictured in the yearbook to be ordered is a Lifetime Member, send an email to [email protected] Yearbook orders from persons who are not Lifetime Members will not be honored.


Even if you are registered in the online directory, and/or a lifetime you must subscribe to the mailing list so that we can send you news and reminders directly to your inbox!

(This list only includes general mail – it does not include the Annual Newsletter which is only sent to Lifetime Members)
