School alumni website for Morenci4.08.09

Written by David Green.

Looking for an old Morenci classmate or other local graduate?

Kent Deatrick is attempting to make that easier to do.

He set up a Yahoo Group called Morenci Alumni Connection for the school alumni committee located at this address: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/morencialumniconnection .

All graduates are encouraged to join so they can keep up on alumni association reunions, as well as class reunions, Deatrick said. Members can use the website to locate former classmates and to post information about class reunions. Photographs can also be added to the site.

The website includes a database of graduates who register on the page (a free Yahoo account is needed) and members have the option of creating a profile to list personal information.

Most people who have registered have not yet filled out a profile and added a photo, Deatrick said, and he urges alumni to take that extra step to help others track you down. Choose Members from the menu at the left, click on your registration and choose Edit Profile.

Deatrick will later add a reservation form for the school alumni reunion scheduled in the fall. Links are also provided for the City of Morenci, Morenci Area Schools, Morenci Chamber of Commerce and the State Line Observer.
