The Collierville High School Alumni Association has three main priorities:
• Fund scholarships for CHS seniors
• Keep alumni informed and involved with CHS
• Provide monetary support for special initiatives at CHS
The CHSAA was formed in 2004 with the primary objective of providing Scholarships for CHS seniors. The initial funding sources were the Mary Louise Cox Estate and The Jasper Stark Foundation. Additional funding comes from Alumni and individuals who support CHS. Our goal is to continue to increase the amounts and number of scholarships awarded to CHS graduates.
We strive to keep alumni informed about current happenings at CHS, alumni events as well as construction progress of our new high school campus opening in Fall 2018. We highlight CHS alumni doing great things with their Collierville Schools education. CHSAA is also available to help with class reunion planning.
CHSAA would like to increase its direct support of special initiatives at CHS. Examples: teacher grants, sponsorship of events, assistance with on-site needs, etc.
CHSAA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and donations are tax-deductible. Donations to CHSAA directly fund college scholarships and ongoing support of Collierville High School. CHS leadership, faculty and students appreciate your continued support.
