Class Champions Needed


Are you a social butterfly?  Are you organized?  Do you want to generate interest within your class to make Seneca High School great again?  Then we need you!  We need volunteers to become Class Champions to gather contact information for classmates.
Do You Own a Business?
One of the Athletic Department's projects this year is to purchase new scoreboards for Basketball, Volleyball and Baseball.  Advertisers are needed to help support this effort.  Advertising is $495 for 3 years.  But Athletic Director Scott Ricks is offering the same price for 5 years!  If you are interested, contact Scott at 502-485-8876 or 270-860-4423.
Mentoring Opportunities


Are you interested in mentoring a student or the parent of a student?  There've been a lot of changes to high school since we attended and parents and students alike need assistance maneuvering a sometimes-daunting world.  If you want to help bring Seneca back to premier status in Jefferson County, contact us and get more information.                   

RIP Sergeant Major Thomas Crump


Sergeant Major Thomas Crump, USMC was a beloved friend of Seneca High School.  The dedicated Marine and Pearl Harbor survivor, opened the first JROTC program in the United States at Seneca High School in 1967.  Sgt Major Crump passed away on July 8, 2014.  Read his obituary here and a wonderful article by Joe Arnold, WHAS11's political editor here.
