Welcome to the Welch High School (WHS) Alumni Web Site.  It is composed by and for former students who attended school On the Hill in Welch, West Virginia.

Reunion news and 100s of pictures are posted on these web pages.  Also, there is a page listing the names of deceased alumni by school year.  Be sure to stop by and view the postings in the  guestbook  and, while you are there,  please take a minute to sign in yourself.  Looking for information about your specific class?  Try the WHS search engine.  The search engine and the missing persons  pages are excellent sources for locating former classmates.  If you have given up on replacing that annual you lost somewhere along the way,  check the Yearbooks on CD page.  The Message Board provides  a place where you can chat with former classmates, announce upcoming events, provide links to pictures you have posted online, and  share other personal information.
