About Us

Promoting Excellence in Education Since 1971

The Whittemore Alumni Association is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization with a mission to promote and support excellence in education through the development of scholarships and educational support opportunities for African-American students entering college and the workforce.

We work to preserve the Whittemore educational legacy by uplifting African-American students rooted in the Whittemore culture and history. Our organization also strives to connect and reunite Whittemore alumni through engagement and activities that are critical to the success of the organization and its mission.
