The W.H. Adamson High School Alumni Association recently held its 18th Annual All-Class Reunion at the school. Located in Oak Cliff, Adamson High School is the oldest continuously-active high school in Dallas ISD.
On the Friday prior to the reunion, the Adamson Alumni 2018 Charity Golf Classic was held at the Prairie Lakes Golf Course.
Saturday’s all-class reunion included activities for all former students, including the reunion program, induction of outstanding alumni and faculty into the Adamson Hall of Honor, tours of the school, and a luncheon in the school cafeteria catered by the favorite Norma’s Restaurant.
Oak Cliff High School was built in 1915 at Ninth and Beckley streets in Oak Cliff and was renamed for its long-time principal and former Oak Cliff Public School Superintendent W. H. Adamson upon his death in 1935. Operating continuously as a high school at that location makes it the oldest continuously operating high school building in Dallas. The original building is a city, state and national Landmark and still stands next to the new building opened in 2012.
