The George Mason High School Alumni Association (GMAA)


was first organized in 1988 to support activities associated with the 40th Anniversary of the City of Falls Church Public School System (FCCPS). Once organized, the GMAA has continued to grow and function as the primary means of locating, informing, and supporting the over 6,000 alumni, alumni teachers and administrators of George Mason High School, located in the City of Falls Church, Virginia.

The GMAA is comprised of a volunteer committee and class representatives from each George Mason graduating class. In addition, the Falls Church Education Foundation (FCEF) is now contributing time and financial support in helping with the publishing and printing of the GMAA newsletter, the Mustang Review.   The Mustang Review is mailed to over 5,000 GMHS alumni, alumni teachers and administrators.

In addition to helping publish the Mustang Review newsletter and maintaining the alumni database, the GMAA also:

 

 

 

 

Sponsors the GMAA All-Class Reunion every five years.  The first such reunion coincided with the 50th Anniversary of the Falls Church City School System in June 1999 (the school system was created in 1949 after the City of Falls Church separated from the County of Fairfax in 1948) and the 300th Tricentennial Celebration of the founding of the town of Falls Church which occurred in 1699.  Additional GMAA All-Class Reunions were held in June 2004 and June 2009. Our next class All-Class Reunion weekend is planned for June 2014.

 

 

 

 

 

In cooperation with, and the support of, the George Mason Athletic Department and the George Mason Athletic Boosters, the GMAA helps organize the GM Athletic Hall of Fame to honor and recognize the rich history of George Mason High School athletics since the school opened in September 1952.  To date , there have been five induction ceremonies (1993, 1995, 2006, 2007 and 2009) with a total of 32 athletes (nine charter members), three coaches, and three teams inducted into the GM Athletic Hall of Fame.  Our sixth ceremony is planned for September/October 2011.
