R.A. Long High School Alumni Association
pride in a rich tradition
Sun, 28 Aug 2016

Welcome

Welcome!

The R. A. Long High School Alumni Association began in 2002 with just a few people gathering to answer the question "Wouldn't it be nice to form an alumni association to maintain contact amongst the generations of R. A. Long students and to benefit the school and current students in some way?" This small group researched, planned, and registered as a non-profit corporation in the State of Washington. The Association is also a non-profit organization under the IRS 501(c)(3).

Class of 2012 Graduates

Jun

The R.A. Long Class of 2012 graduated June 9, 2012 in a ceremony at Longview Memorial Stadium.  The Daily News reported that RAL is shedding its image as a "ghetto school".  Principal Rich Reeves ('86) credits the class of 2012 with helping to change the image.  We think Mr. Reeves has contributed significantly to the positive changes.
