How We Got Started

In early 1979, Joan Selby decided it was time to start gathering the class of 1972 together for a 10-year class reunion. She contacted the seven classmates she still kept in touch with and three of them met in Denver to form a committee that would eventually become the Zaragoza High School Alumni Association.

Our 'now extremely dated' offline/hard copy directory contained several hundred names of previously located alumni, former students and former faculty.

The Association was governed by an Executive Committee of former students. We had a bank account in the association's name with the Bank of America and was listed with the Internal Revenue Service. We had an organizational charter which was approved by the IRS and which stipulated how the organization would be run, funds dispersed, and how officers were elected.

About Those Dues

We previously had an annual dues of $25 for Association membership. It provided the member with a subscription to a quarterly newsletter, a copy of the alumni listing booklet, and all special updates. The dues was smaller than the $35 to $65 annual membership fees being charged by other overseas school alumni associations. The money was used to offset the considerable financial expenses that a few of the alumni were shouldering.

At this point, publication of the quarterly newsletters have been suspended, the old directory and alumni rolls are largely out-dated (although some of the information on file may still be valid), and we have changed from hardcopy files to an online interactive directory at this web site.

The 'association' has long since been 'disbanded' and we are now simply a website/resource that is out there for all former zabbies (Zebras and Toros and faculty alike).

The Search Continues...

We are constantly searching (and accepting those who find us) for ZHS alumni, from all years (Zebra, Toros alike) 1955-1992.

The webmaster has now provided a working online and interactive directory where individuals can specifically select which information items will be available to other directory members viewing the directory.
