58 years and counting

Dear Friends of Pueblo South High School,

The South High School Alumni Foundation is proud to announce the 16th Annual South High School Hall of Fame Dinner and Auction on Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the Pueblo Country Club.

This fundraiser is critical to the ongoing alumni support of our alma mater. Over the past 15 years, we've raised over $700.000.00 of donations that have been directly returned to students, programs, and facilities at South High School such as these:

  • Courtyard renovations and maintenance, including the Veterans' Memorial.
  • Procurement of ChromeBooks, iPads, graphing calculators, and science class supplies
  • Support of athletic teams, including purchasing new uniforms, providing transportation for state playoff games, purchasing a new score table for the gym, and renovating an outbuilding for a variety of teams to utilize for practices.
  • Support of performing arts, including the purchase of new band uniforms.
  • Covered the cost of registration fees for trips for various clubs and organizations.
  • No-cost letter jackets and vearbooks for students in need.
  • Funding of equipment for Distance Learning Lab, Colt Nation TV, and auditorium technology.
  • Sponsor of After Prom activities.
  • Support and encouragement for student attendance during state testing.

These, along with many other projects and programs, couldn't have been accomplished without tremendous support from our alumni and community friends like you. We hope we can count on you to give "SOMETHING EXTRA FOR SOUTH" by donating an item for our silent auction.
