Apply Now for the 2019 NAFA Scholarship

The successful scholarship applicant will be one who shows active school and community service during their high school years.

Why is a high school alumni association needed?

Why, all of a sudden, is there this need to create an alumni association for Norwin? Perhaps, the real question should be, why has it taken so long? High school alumni groups have been around for many years. Although there may be relatively few in western Pennsylvania, the eastern part of the state has had many high school alumni groups for years.
