Supporting our school, faculty, and students through our time, talent, and treasure.

Why should you become a member of the RHS Alumni association?

  • Each year membership dues and donations provide for two cash awards to help RHS graduates obtain a college or post high school education provided through our organization’s scholarship program.
  • To honor and perpetuate the memory of our beloved high school.
  • To receive complementary issues or our bi-monthly newsletter, the Rough Rider, containing the latest news on our alumni, luncheons, upcoming reunions, and other enjoyable events.
  • To help you locate and reconnect with past friends and classmates.
  • As we are a not-for-profit, charitable organization, membership and scholarship donations may be tax deductible. Check with your tax advisor for additional information.


The alumni association has collected many pieces of memorabilia through the years. We have donated the items to the school, and they are now proudly displayed in Room 23 (formerly Room 7). Trophies, awards, apparel, yearbooks (Bwanas), documents, and other important memories are now stored and on display there. Click here to view some photos of the room of memorabilia. Details on when alumnus can visit and view the items in person will be published soon here on the website.
