CELEBRATING 120 YEARS
Together we are strong!
North High School was founded in 1888 and opened in January of 1889.
Did you know? Alexus Olson, class of 1891, was the first president of the Minneapolis North High Alumni Association. “The first commencement at North Side high school, was held Wednesday evening, June 10, 1891. At the close of the graduation exercises the sixteen members of the pioneer class were no longer students of North High but constituted the entire body of Alumni of the new educational institution.” The first meeting of the Alumni was held in Miss Sterret’s room at the school on Friday June 12, 1891 at 2:00 P.M.
Little would they know that over a century later their ideas and spirit continues through the dedication of graduates from the past who love North High.
Each year in June we elect alumni to serve in the positions of the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Alumni must be present at the meeting to vote.
Below are the 2019-2020 Alumni Board:
