Adamson alumni to hold annual reunion and tournament this weekend


The Adamson High School Alumni Association will hold its 19th Annual All-Class Reunion at the school on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. Located at 309 E. Ninth in Oak Cliff, W. H. Adamson High School is the oldest continuously-active high school in the Dallas Independent School District.

On Friday prior to the reunion, the Adamson Alumni 2019 Charity Golf Classic is scheduled at the Prairie Lakes Golf Course 3202 SE 14th Street in Grand Prairie.

Saturday’s All-Class Reunion will include activities for all former students, including the Reunion program, induction of outstanding alumni and faculty into the Adamson Alumni Hall of Honor, tours of the school, and a luncheon in the beautiful school cafeteria overlooking downtown Dallas, 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.

The reunion program is free and open to the public. Reservations for the Golf Tournament and/or for the Reunion Luncheon may be made at Adamson Alumni Association, PO Box 4753, Dallas, TX 75208 or the association’s website
