The association was founded shortly thereafter, with the election of officers and committee chairs and adoption of a constitution with its goal of “Supporting school, faculty and students through our time, talent and treasure.”
On Saturday, May 21, 2005, the alumni association held an 80th Anniversary Celebration of the first graduation class of 1925 and honoring four graduates with alumni scholarships in the school auditorium.
The association is a not-for-profit, charitable organization registered as a 501(C)3 and is registered with the State of Missouri, Office of the Secretary of State.

OPEN FORUM The Roosevelt Alumni Association is sponsoring an open program for all Roosevelt Alumni. The Forum will be at Royale Orleans on Telegraph Road. Details forthcoming. Watch for them in our Newsletter as well as on this page. This is an important event.
The Alumni Association supports the school and students in many ways: It provides financial support through its scholarship program, offering two scholarships each year of $2,000 per year for four years for a total of $8,000 and $1,000 per year for four years for a total of $4,000 to deserving seniors. Applications and guidelines are available at RHS and through the website. Additional information and photos of the current scholarship winners can be viewed on this link. This program has been funded by our scholarship fundraising drives, the many contributions by individuals and donations from class reunions. All contributions are tax deductible. Some of the many ways the association has supported the school and students, in addition to providing scholarships, are the design and installation of an eight by sixteen foot Roosevelt High School sign located at the corner of Compton and Gravois avenue, new shoes for the cheer-leading team, new uniforms for the baseball team, sponsorship of a breakfast for the football team and the refurbishing of eight computers for the school library. We are also sponsoring an annual Trivia Night.
LUNCHEONS All alumni are invited to join fellow alumni at our bi-monthly luncheons at the Royale Orleans Banquet Center. Luncheons are held on the second Wednesday of each even numbered month. See the Luncheon link under Reunions & Events for date and time, reservation form and directions. This is a great opportunity to meet classmates and enjoy a great lunch. All alumni, spouses and guests are welcome. It is not necessary to be a paid member of the association to attend.
