Membership in the Alumni Association is vital to allowing our association to contribute to the margin of excellence achieved by the Rensselaer City Schools. It's a small way for us to give back to help provide a head start for the next generation of children growing up in our hometown. That little extra level of interest and support could make the difference in someone's life for which they will be forever grateful. Your membership and generosity allows your association to continue to accomplish the important activities outlined in the annual membership  drive mailing. It also paves the way for future Hall of Fame inductees who distinguish our community and make us all proud to say "I am from Rensselaer".

We are grateful for the following people  who have contributed to the membership fund drive this year. Strength in numbers!
