Since its inception in 1894, Opelousas High School has produced some of the strongest and most diverse alumni in southern Louisiana. Our former students have gone on to impact every aspect of our society: teachers, ministers, priests, authors, businessmen, entrepreneurs, bankers, tellers, cashiers, clerks, farmers, housekeepers, bookkeepers, accountants, professional athletes, politicians, attorneys, judges, nurses, doctors, and other health care professionals. Their success is attributable to their hard work and to the education they received from their career at Opelousas High School.
Our alma mater is in need of your help to inspire present-day Tigers to follow in these footsteps to become successful. We are desperately in need of an outdoor concession stand with restrooms to serve supporters of our soccer, baseball, softball, track, and junior varsity football programs. This building will be placed near the track and baseball fields. We have the blueprints, and the estimated cost of construction is $200,000.
We have asked for assistance from the school district, but that assistance has been slow in coming. Therefore, we are turning to you, our strongest supporters. We are asking for your tax deductible donations. All donors will be listed on the OHS Tiger Wall of Fame placed in the new concession stand and in the football programs each year. We will also establish a GoFundMe page online and will gladly accept donations from class reunion celebrations.
There are several categories from which to choose for your donation:
Golden Tiger Paw……. $1000.00
Tiger Top Cat……….... $500.00
Big Cat………………… $250.00
Tiger Stripes Forever.... $100.00
Tiger Pride…………...... $75.00
Geaux Tigers…………... $50.00
Together we can make a difference in the lives of the students in our community, a community that once supported us and laid a foundation for whom we have become. Show the world that why OHS is still a symbol of courage, strength, and dedication--true Tiger Pride.
