The Brush Alumni Association was begun in 1992 to help keep track of our database of alumni, which is now home to approximately 32,000 Brush High graduates! We also strive to enrich a positive rapport with the high school, its activities, and its student body. Our officers and trustees meet monthly to ensure that the following projects are ongoing:
Assisting classes who are holding a class reunion
Keeping records as up-to-date as possible on each graduate
Sending a bi-annual newsletter, the Alumni Arc-Lite, to dues paying members. The newsletters are also made available at the Administration Building
Donating money to various school groups, such as the drama club and the yearbook, who request our assistance
Restoring various areas of the school (the fountain area)
Keeping the Alumni Walkway Pavers current and in good condition
Administrating a number of scholarships to qualified seniors. Members of the Class of 2019 will receive approximately $19,000 from the Alumni Association.
Inducting into our Wall of Achievement lauded graduates and honored faculty members, who have shown outstanding achievements in areas such as leadership, humanitarianism, service to Brush High, courage, creativity, and careers which have benefited others. At the induction, we also honor 20 to 30 members of the current senior class.
We are grateful to the South Euclid-Lyndhurst School Board for providing us with office space, phones, fax machines, etc., in the Central Administration Building (the old Richmond Road School). As a non-profit organization, we depend upon alumni donations to keep us “up and running”.
