The Katy High School Alumni Association became an official organization in a meeting of interested alumni on May 19, 1934. Thomas Alderson (1914), a member of the first class to be honored with a graduation ceremony, was elected president. Others elected were Mary Peddycord (1925), secretary and Cecil Cott (1916), treasurer. It has met annually except for the years during World War II, when fuel was rationed and many graduates were serving in the military. The Association regrouped in 1947 and continues to meet annually.
The purpose of the Association is to provide a common meeting place for all Katy High School graduates to come together annually to renew old friendships, reminisce and to retain the history of Katy High School. This is an all-volunteer organization supported by dedicated graduates of KHS. Attempts are made to keep class rosters as current as possible, which can only be done if graduates keep us informed.
MEMBERSHIP DUES are encouraged and collected annually to fund the mailing for the annual meeting of the Association. Currently dues are $10/graduate or $12/husband & wife graduates. Lifetime memberships are $500/graduate. Donations are appreciated. Dues, donations and address changes should be mailed to K.H.S. Alumni Association, P. 0. Box 171, Katy, TX 77492-0171. Please note: checks, money orders or cash only. We are not set up to collect by credit card, debit card or Pay Pal.
ANNUAL MEETING: The Alumni Board is proud to announce that the program for the annual meeting is Dr. Lance Hindt, superintendent for KISD. Last year the program by Ronnie Scott talked about the history of Katy High School and now Dr. Hindt will discuss what is happening now in KISD and the future plans. Please attend because we want to hear what lies ahead and to show support for Dr. Hindt.
Annual Meetings are held in June, usually on the 3rd Saturday, in the Merrill Building located off FM 1463 between 1-10 and the Katy High School football field.
