CAA Scholarship Established/In-Memoriam Donation Recognition/HELP NEEDED

Some relevant actions from the 09/15/2021 CAA Board meeting:

  • Ruth Shaw Memorial Scholarship:  The CAA formally approved establishment of the Ruth Shaw Memorial Scholarship.  Reference the Alumni Giving Opportunities section for more detailed info about this scholarship and how you can support  it.
  • In-Memoriam Donations & Recognition:  In-Memoriam donations for deceased CHS Alumni/Faculty will be recognized in the Alumni Remembrance/In Memoriam section.  The name and the class of the deceased will be posted therein.  Neither the donor’s name nor the amount of the donation will be mentioned; however, the CAA will respond to the donor in accordance with normal donation acceptance/appreciation correspondence practices.  In-Memoriam donations can be designated for CAA Board approved/sanctioned projects as outlined in the Donate and Alumni Giving Opportunities sections. 
  • CAA Participation in Future CHS Athletic Hall of Fame (HOF) Induction and CHS Football Homecoming Events:  The Board will allocate $1000 total ($500 for each event) in support of CAA sponsorship and participation in these events.  CAA representatives will meet with the C-NP Schools Athletic Director to refine HOF involvement details.  The Board will subsequently consider options on how best to publicize the CAA during the events surrounding the annual CHS Football Homecoming – which could include participation in the Homecoming parade and/or hosting a reception/social following the parade or the game.  Alumni input is solicited.
  • Additional CAA Help/Volunteer Support Desperately NeededActive involvement and participation in CAA leadership and volunteer capacities are desperately needed – especially from CHS Alums who graduated in the late 1970s through the 1990sThis is YOUR Alumni Association.  The majority of current CAA Board leadership are CHS graduates from the 1960s era (translated, they are in their “golden years.”)   If the CAA is to remain a viable and vibrant organization supporting the C-NP Schools and our Alumni, then a leadership transition plan must be effected in the near future.  If you are willing to serve in a Leadership (CAA Officer; Board of Directors; committee head; class coordinator; reunion/event coordinator/planner; publicity; membership; donation/sponsorship solicitation; website maintenance) or in an event/project Volunteer capacity; then Contact Us  or send an email at info@choctawalumni.org.  Thanks in advance for your consideration.

“Turn Out The Lights; The Party Is Over” – we’re closing the “books” on a very busy and very successful alumni reunion weekend – as measured by the quality time spent and camaraderie enjoyed with our fellow CHS Alumni and Faculty from bygone eras.
