The Parma Schaaf High School Alumni Association was founded in 1941 at Parma Schaaf High School by Principal William Bassett, George Red Rees ’34, and Lee Bailey ’29. In 1953, Parma Seniorr High was opened as the Queen of High Schools. For the past 76 years, the PSH Alumni Association has continued its role as part of Parma Sr. High and the Parma community as a whole. We have continued our responsibility of helping with PSH class reunions, including class updated rosters and information about reunion dates. Each year through our Golf Outing (this year June 16 at Ridgewood Golf course) and donations from alumni we are able to award scholarships to deserving graduates of PSH of about $12,000 plus a teacher grant.  We furnish and maintain an Alumni courtyard that is used by students and staff. We sponsor a tailgate event for Homecoming. We have an annual meeting (this year August 7 at the Parma Recreation Center at 6:30) open to all Alumni. Our Golden Reunion is annual event open of all Alumni that have celebrated their 50th reunion. This year’s event will be August 26 at the PSH cafeteria at 10 am. We continue to communicate to our Alumni with a Newsletter “The Tradition”, a Facebook Page and our website-  communicating dates, times, and events. We maintain an archival room/museum that contains history of Parma High and memorabilia that we have collected over the past 96 years. “Loyalty Eternally” Submitted by Anthony DeMarco ‘62 PSH Alumni Board.
