    The Lamar High School Alumni Association offered to help raise additional funds by sponsoring a Capital Campaign. This campaign was designed to raise the funds needed to 1) cover the cost for upgrading the five new playing fields that would be built behind the original building (after three older facilities were removed), 2) cover the cost of certain elements within the buildings that were not covered by the Bond Funds, and 3) to create a fund for college scholarships for graduating seniors. Now, the Lamar High School Alumni Association would like to invite all parents, grandparents, or friends to participate in this effort to raise the funds needed.
