Dear Hammond High Alumnus,


We all have some wonderful memories of our years at Hammond High School, whether it was our favorite teacher, homecoming parades, Sadie Hawkins dances, dances at the Hammond Recreation Center, basketball games in the gym now known as the Neill Corporation, or yes, that 1971 state football championship.  No matter what anyone says, we all had some remarkably wonderful times, and we managed to graduate, too!


It is now time for us to stand as proud supporters of Hammond High School, join the Hammond High School Alumni Association, and show our Tornado pride.  Please take time to fill out the application and join your alumni organization!  Our school needs our support, and it is time for us to become active members of the Hammond High School family once again.  This organization will support both academics and athletics at our school.  We also plan to have at least three big events every year to bring alumni back to our campus.


Please take time and join us today, and send us your email address, too! 




Guy Recotta, Jr., Class of 1971
