Dedication Day – 2016-2017 ANNUAL NEWSLETTER

Last year’s Dedication Day was a tremendous success. The talent of our school population was reflected in the student body and by our honorees. We also honored veteran alumni with a “Well Done” medal for their service to the country.

You may visit the Hall of Honor, located adjacent to the Jacquelyn McGee Performing Arts Center and the Band Hall, at any time. The Brian Schenk Archives, based in the Library, are also available to you at any time. We maintain a class ring collection, the third largest in the nation; a Comet yearbook
collection; a collection of books by Austin High authors, faculty, and alumni; and the Archives,
containing a wide variety of memorabilia from
Austin High’s past.

We encourage your donations to any of the collections. Keep your eyes open in antique shops which carry old yearbooks or other Austin High memorabilia. Bring the items on Dedication Day or on any school day to the Library. Please include your
name and address with your donation.
