Class officers interested in putting their reunion money in the account for future reunion use should contact Amanda York at 913-780-8182 or emailing Amanda York. Checks should be made out to the Olathe Public Schools Alumni Association with the school and class year in the memo line (example: ON Class of '61).

    • The alumni association executive board includes recent and distant graduates, as well as a number of district staff who will support the organization on a long-term basis.
