Vintage yearbooks available at South High

Did you miss out on purchasing a yearbook while at South Hagerstown High School? Is your four-year collection incomplete?

There are some vintage yearbooks available for purchase.

The yearbooks would make great gifts or perhaps a specific graduating class would like to purchase additional copies to have at reunions.

A list of the years and quantities available and prices can be found on the SHHS Alumni Web site at

Contact Myra Newbraugh at newbrmyr@wc to reserve a yearbook, and to make arrangements for payment and pickup. The money raised will go to make yearbooks in the future.
