Celebrating 100 Years!
Welcome back, Union Redskin alumni! Union Public Schools invites you to reconnect with your alma mater, former classmates and old teachers. We also would love for you to visit, watch our games and shows, participate in activities and volunteer your talents. You are Redskins for Life, after all!
Union offer offers a number of ways for you to reconnect and we keep making improvements.
Union Alumni Center
In 2012, Union opened the Union Alumni Center, located in the main entry area for the High School. The center features memorabilia from throughout the district’s history as well as computer access to all the yearbooks as well as old photos. Union plans to keep updating the center, adding video from former alumni and staff members.
Class reunions are coordinated by alumni, who plan reunions, special functions and maintain contact information of former classmates. Union does not plan or organize reunions; these events are overseen by former students.Union Public Schools may provides a calendar to post events and may post additional information as it becomes aware of them. Union does not oversee or plan reunions. Union will work with alumni for special arrangements, such as providing tours of school buildings, for reunions, but it does not always know when reunions may be scheduled unless someone contacts the District or plans to hold reunion activities on Union property.
Union’s proud tradition began with its formation in 1919 when four rural communities – Union, Central, Sunnyside and Alsuma – consolidated. There were only four students in its first graduating class. Union’s original borders were much broader, extending as far northwest as 21st Street and South Yale. Those portions, however, were annexed by the Tulsa Public School District in the 1950s, making Union’s current northwest border 31st and Mingo Road.
Enrollment gradually increased and new programs were added. Then, Tulsa’s development rapidly spread toward the southeast, leading to new office and home construction and a burst of growth for Union. In 1968, there were 800 students in the entire district. In 1995, that number grew to 11,500 and to about 16,000 in 2019.
If you are coordinating an alumni event and need information or wish to post something on Union’s alumni calendar, please contact us!
