UPDATE ON THE North High Viking Site


All Items in Blue are either Web Links or Email Links



Bill Gilcrist has retired as senior site administrator of www.northhighvikingcom

If anyone would consider taking over the position to help keep this valuable website, please contact one of the administrators. 



We have so many classmates from North High, but only a small amount has registered on the website.  Everyone has commented on their enthusiasm of having such a connection to old classmates.  Please spread the word to everyone to register before our connections are lost.  It has been a long road to set this website up and all the people that help keep it going are excited about it, but we need your help also.  Please send us any information, updates, obituaries and fun things your class is doing to stay connected.

We would like to have one website so all the classes can share their events and not miss out spending time with their classmates. Your event also will be posted on the Announncement Page.
