Urbana Alumni Association
The Urbana Alumni Association is an all-volunteer organization devoted to supporting Urbana’s schools. The organization is constantly trying to assist our schools in every way possible. Membership is important to keep progress at the Urbana schools going. This year, the UAA helped get chairs for the orchestra and a new weight room for student athletes. Their efforts will continue by focusing on the Wall of Fame.
More information about the UAA can be found on their website.
Information about specific year UHS reunions can be found on the UHS reunion page.
Upon written request by a student or a parent/guardian, official transcripts of records may be sent only to other institutions.
Current UHS students may visit the UHS Guidance website for more information about ordering transcripts.
