Jefferson Alumni Association and Jefferson High School would like to thank you for your support. Jefferson High School is an inner city school in North Portland, educating the only majority African American and minority student body in Portland and the State of Oregon. At one time, Jefferson produced a continuing stream of extra-ordinary athletes, dancers and academics. Over the past 4 decades, however, an erosion of support, both from funding and community, has resulted in a school in desperate need of revitalization of its self-image and role within the greater Portland community.
The Jefferson Alumni Association with you, the greater City of Portland community can right this wrong and set a course of action to support Jefferson High School, and the legacy it represents. Therefore, we are asking you for your generous support. Whatever you can pledge to help will get us one step closer to strengthening a school community and the children it serves.
