Outstanding Alumnus Nominations
Due Soon

We Need You! (to volunteer)


Greetings, RHS Alums! Although school is out, activities for the students and alumni continue. We have great opportunities for you to get involved with your Alumni Association–in fact, we need your help to continue to grow our organization and to produce great events for all of us to enjoy.

Please consider volunteering for one of the activities you see listed below. Or if you’re interested in year-round work with RHSAA, we can certainly find ways to involve you. Please feel free to email me at any time. I love hearing from you! (

Please share this Newsletter with family and friends and be sure the word gets out. Encourage other alums to send us their contact emails. Go Rough Riders!

-Mike Verbout, RHSAA President
