The Association’s History

The FSSGians Alumni Association (Washington Metropolitan Branch) was founded in 1988 by a group of concerned FSSGians who wanted to play a more active role in supporting the school, its teachers and pupils. It started as a small group of women and now has about 60 active members.

Over the years, the Association has undertaken numerous fund-raising projects. These include Thanksgiving services, Fund-raising dances, and luncheon sales. It has sent the proceeds from these and other efforts to the school, which has used the money for a wide variety of programs that have benefited the students and teachers of the Freetown Secondary School for Girls.
