Fundraising Goal FY2015 - 2016

Collected: $1,825.00
Goal: $100,000.00
Working together, we can provide needed help to support the students and programs at Lucy C. Laney High School.


Why Do We Exist?

The Lucy Craft Laney High School Alumni Association was organized to support the curricula and extracurricual programs of Lucy C. Laney High School.  Our primary goal is to raise funds to support Laney High School. We are the official alumni group sanctioned by the administration of Lucy C. Laney High School.

It is our hope that every class will list its reunion officers and activities on our website.  By doing so, we provide alumni, around the country, a single source for information surrounding alumni and reunion activities.

The LCLHSAA is not a reunion group and we have no desire to interrupt or interfere with any alumni group activities.  Our hope is to serve as an umbrella organization which brings all of the alumni classes and groups together in an organized and unified manner designed to maximize our energies in support of Lucy C. Laney High School. 

All funds raised by the LCLHSAA will be used to provide financial support for the students and programs at Laney High School.  By joining the LCLHSAA, you ensure our ability to provide needed financial support to the school. 

We encourage all alumni of Lucy C. Laney High School to become a financial member of the alumni association.  The $25.00 annual membership fee helps us to continue to provide much needed financial assistance to the school.  

If you are a financial member, we thank you for your continued support.  If you are not, we encourage you to join us NOW.  Consider making a donation to your alumni association.  Together, we will return the PRIDE to Laney-Walker Boulevard.
