Akron High School Alumni
This website is for all graduates from Akron High School, Akron, Colorado, 80720. We created this for all graduates to check on what's happening at Akron's Alumni Celebration every year in May, and to check in with friends and classmates that attended Akron High School.
Mission: Our Mission is to provide a contact, information place to find old friends, classmates and keep updated with all Alumni and Alumni events from Akron, Colorado.
[06/19/20] We want to give a shout out to the A.H.S. Class of ‘79. For over a decade now the members of this class have donated to make the Akron Alumni Scholarship possible for an Akron senior(s). Thank you for giving back!!
We lost a dear friend and alumnus in Samuel Herrington last week. Sam was part of the Class of ‘39 and was proud of being an Akron Alumnus. He made the annual trip to be at the alumni banquet each spring. The Alumni Association recognized his 80 year reunion at the spring banquet in 2019. We will miss him dearly and the stories from years ago that he would share about Akron and the school. Rest In Peace, Samuel.
