Two issues of the Alumni Foundation newspaper were mailed to over 11,000 alumni in 2013.
The cost to your Alumni Foundation for these two issues was $8321 which represents over 80% of our administrative expenses.
In order to save most of this money, we plan to take the following steps beginning in 2015.
1. Continue to create the newspaper twice a year.
2. Deliver printed newspaper only to Alumni Foundation members (see membership application elsewhere on this website).
3. Deliver newspaper by email to any alumnus upon request (whether or not they are an Alumni Foundation member). If you would like the newspaper to be emailed to you, please send an email to
and simply put the words LWHS Alumni Newspaper in the subject line of your email. Please include your name and graduating class in the body of the email.
4. Provide newspaper on our website for all other alumni.
Thank you for your understanding as we implement these changes.
