Wichita Falls High School turns 100 years old.

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) – The Wichita Falls High School Alumni Association celebrated 100 years Saturday morning.

This past weekend, June 1, alumni gathered to honor Old High’s accomplishments.

They also discussed how the association could help future students by providing scholarships for students continuing their studies at Midwestern State University.

Raymond Wallander, president of the association, emphasized the importance of the relationship between the high school and the university.

“It is a historic partnership that goes back a hundred years, because when the school opened in 1924, both teachers and students were able to attend one or both schools. Eventually, when it became Midwestern University, as they separated and had their own campus, a strong relationship continued.” Wallander said.

He says this partnership serves as a reminder to invest in the community.
