Las Vegas High School, built Art Deco style and opened in 1930, was the first high school built in the city and has been classified as a protected historic building. LVHS was built on property previously owned by the Union Pacific Rail Road and deeded to the city for use as a public school. (FYI: Many of the historic trophies and awards earned by our alumni are stored in a room on the third floor, awaiting final disposition: possible disposal ! !)
This group has been formed with the intention of promoting and completing the restoration of the historic "Senior Squares" (AKA "Senior Steps") at the original Las Vegas High School. The "Senior Squares" are squares in the concrete area at the bottom of the steps of the main entrance. Each graduating class designed and painted a square to commemorate the occasion of their graduation.
This group consists mostly of Alumni that span the gamut of society in Las Vegas. Similar projects have been started several times, but have never been completed. With the help of the communications opportunities provided by the Internet, and the drive and resolution of the current group, we intend to succeed where others have failed.
