Mira Marquel Hamilton '91
Greg Lehman '68, Mira's track coach and teacher and also in the  WHS Alumni Hall of Fame

Mira was one of many fine students at Washington HS and a member of the Computer Specialty Program.  On matriculating to UW-Whitewater and joining the Track and Field Team, Mira qualified for every national chanpionship during his career, four indoor and four outdoor.  He held UWW school records in the 55 meters indoors, and the 100 and 200 meters outdoors when he graduated.  Mira won the 55 meters indoors and 100 outdoors at the WIAC Championship and qualified for both national meets again, racing to a third place in the 55 meters indoors at the NCAA Division III championship and winning the 100 meter dash at the '94 NCAA Division III outdoor meet.  He earned All-America status three times during his career.

Since graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 1995 with a Bachelor's degree from the Management Computer Systems (MCS) program he has worked for several Information Technology concerns and most recently has taken a position as Service Monitoring Project Manager for the Washington DC Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.  He has many accomplishments and even speaking engagements as a result of his work for WMATA.

During the time he worked in the Milwaukee area he served for several years on the WHS Advisory Board for the Computer Information Technology Academy as a valued member and resource.  We congratulate Mira on his induction into the UWW Athletic Hall of Fame, thank him very much for his service back to Washington HS and wish him well in his future endeavors.

Another successful WHS Alumni! we are proud of!



Winter and the end of 2015 isn't far away
"The falling leaves drift by my window

The autumn leaves of red and gold..."

...that is, at least for those of us living in the northern half of the US!

The WHS Alumni Scholarship Foundation board continues to work toward developing various initiatives.  We hope to begin announcing some of these in the coming months.

Please consider an end of the tax year donation to the WHS Alumni Scholarship Foundation.  Each June your Foundation provides scholarships to 25-30 deserving WHS Grads to support their efforts at post-secondary institutions.  Any donation you provide will be very much appreciated.

Please send your fully tax-deductible donation to

Subscribing to Profiles


Through one of our committee members, we are aware of a different site calling themselves the WHS Alumni Site.  The URL includes the name < >. This site is currently seeking funds for memberships. AlumniClass has earned a grade of F by the Better Business Bureau for not dealing with numerous consumer complaints.  PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM ANY FUNDS. None of this money comes to our official WHS Alumni Scholarship Foundation, Inc.  We do not charge alumni any membership fees. is another site you should avoid - they have been sued for illicit business practices, particularly for autorenewal of membership fees.  

If you Google either of these sites along with the term "business practices" you will get further information.

Please avoid these sites!  Thank you

Reunion Sites Selling WHS Apparel

There is at least one commercial reunion site which has for sale various items of WHS apparel and other kinds of WHS gifts.  We are not associated in any way with any of these sites.  No portion of the purchase price of any item on these sites is returned to the Washington HS Alumni Scholarship Foundation. We will be announcing shortly a WHS Alumni Store where we will sell caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts and other memorabilia.

Subscribing to Profiles

When you first register or later if you click on Profile Subscription you can choose to follow one or more of your classmates.  When you select each individual classmate, you are subscribed to that person's profile and will receive a message when they update their profile.

There's a large button right below the selection boxes labeled "Subscribe to all Profiles".  Don't click this button unless you want to be deluged by emails indicating someone (anyone) on the site has changed their profile. 

If you are getting many emails about profile updates, click on Profile Subscriptions, then scroll down to the button marked "Unsubscribe from all Profiles" and click on it. That should stop those emails.

If you're still having problems, send a message via Contact Us.
