Recognizing Generosity – Introducing SHSAA's ‘Honor Roll’
The Salem High School Alumni Association was organized in 1882 and created the first high school alumni scholarship fund in Ohio in 1903. Since 1908, our association has awarded more than $7.9 million to 2408 recipients. Thanks to generous alumni and donors over the past 138 years, the association’s portfolio stands at nearly $10 million.
