On January 22, 2013, the Luther Judson Price High School Athletic/Alumni Association presented Price Middle School with checks to support current programs and needs. The Athletic/Alumni Association began in 2006 and has directly supported Price Middle School for the last two years in the form of financial contributions to further the Academic and Athletic Programs, assistance in providing storage for science equipment, support of student and staff incentives and much, much more.
Each year since 2010, the association has provided five eighth grade students with awards for their outstanding academic success while at Price Middle School. Additionally, the Alumni Association provides high school seniors in college with scholarships for former Price Middle School students. All students are recognized at the annual Alumni Breakfast held at the Georgia International Convention Center in April. The students are treated to a wonderful breakfast, entertainment from alumni and the traditional singing of the school song where over 2000 people dressed in red sing the Price High School song. The proceeds from the Annual Alumni Breakfast go to directly support the current Price Wildcats. For more information about the alumni’s efforts, go to http://pricehighalumniathletes.com/index.html.
In addition to financial support, the Alumni Association attends sports and academic events, provides speakers for Career Day, and black history presentations and more. Through the generosity of the Athletic/Alumni Association the legacy of Luther Judson Price still lives on today.
