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. 



Patty and I will be taking a December vacation. We are headed 

to Cancun Mexico, and will be gone the first week of December.

Should a situation arise that you need site assistance, you can choose one of two ways to contact another administrator:

1. Log onto the site; click on Classmate Profiles at the top; on the new screen, click Search.

Search; in the search box, type in the word "Admin". A list of all the Administrators will open. You can select a specific Administrator.

2. You can just click on Contact Us. This method will contact all of the 

Administrators at the same time.

We are still looking for a senior site administrator to take over the site, so please contact us if you or someone you know is interested.

Site Creator



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. Please check this page often.
