The Richmond Secondary School Alumni Association (RSSAA) is a non-profit society geared in reconnecting RHS graduate students together, supporting excellence in our school, and empowering and enriching daily academic lives of our current students in various aspects. Our contributions to the school vary from annual valedictory scholarships awarded to graduating seniors, to funding of a variety of school departments (athletics, arts, theatre and special programs), clubs and events. We also host and promote various events for our Alumni, such as our annual luncheon, various fundraisers, and the occasional, memorable grad reunions. Since its official founding in 1986, the RSSAA has allocated and dispersed an astounding $625,000 worth of gaming commission funds to help out all areas of the school environment, in the form of scholarships, equipment, technology and school resources. We are proud to be a part of this wonderful, ever-growing community.

Class of 1950 - 65th Reunion
One of the last senior classes from the old Richmond High, the Class of 1950 got together to celebrate their 65th anniversary of their graduation. Twenty-five of the 73 graduates made it to the reunion at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport for an afternoon of catching up and sharing stories. Almost all the grads had to travel to attend, with only two grads still residing in Richmond.
Art Cooke, a member of the grad class and the reunion organizing committee, said that it was neccessary to hold this year's special event. "We thought it was an important event because since we graduated from Richmond High School in 1950, this may be the last one.
The guest speaker for the event was Richmond coun. Harold Steves, who attended both schools and graduated from the new Richmond High. His speech involved reminiscing about Richmond during their high school days. "It's a group of people whose collective memory remembers Richmond at a different time, and it was great to talk about that time. And we've all got silimar recollections of what it was like, and we can still envision the Richmond before 1960, when everything changed."
"For those that love a great city, I think we've got one of the best cities there is. Those that like the agriculture area, we still have the agriculture area... We try to have the best of both worlds."
