A strong alumni association can boost school pride, enhance a sense of community, create networking opportunities, and help other graduates with scholarship money. Those good reasons and more are behind Wendy Schoppee’s drive to enroll more Bulldogs in the Machias Memorial High School Alumni Association.
“We have between 15 and 20 active members right now. We meet online,” said Schoppee, who serves as the association president. “We span a wide range of ages, from Class of 1969 to some early 2000s graduates.”
