November 12, 1958 - February 6, 2013
On February 6th 2013 the District eleven Board of Education voted 6 - 1 to close Wasson as a comprehensive high school, re purposing the building to house a new "Early college" program along with alternative programs and the districts Adult & Family operations. While the use of the building may have changed from that which we all remember the Wasson family name will remain with the building.
** The Board of Education has approved the new name: **

CALLING ALL DISTRICT 11 GRADUATES!
We in School District 11 are proud of the tradition of excellence that has
long been associated with our district. As we increase efforts to market
our fine schools and programs, it just makes sense to let our graduates
tell their own success stories.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
As far as reunions go, one of the hardest jobs is trying to find everyone in that particular class. We are currently designing a database for current contact info on past and current Wasson Alumni to help make organizing reunions an easier task.
This contact information will not be used for marketing purposes and will not be viewable for the general public. If any of the Alumni wants to contact anyone in the database, all they have to do is contact us first and we'll get everyone in touch promptly with other Thunderbirds.
Please contact us regarding membership in the Wasson Alumni Association. We now have a Membership Application that you may print (click anywhere within this text); then complete and mail along with your generous donation to:
