History of the Association

The association was formed 29 years ago by a group of alumni that wanted to preserve the homecoming reunion tradition that had been established by their ancestors years before.
The Malakoff Tiger Exes was born in 1989. An all class reunion was first held at the Malakoff Community Center with subsequent reunions being held in the "Palace", the old HS gym, the current HS. In 2000, it became the Malakoff Ex-Students & Alumni Group.The 2008 reunion was canceled due to the HS being designated an evacuation shelter during a hurricane. In late 2008, the board voted to cease operations as an organization as membership was falling. In 2009, alumni met to ensure that the organization continued to survive. In 2010, we reorganized into an IRS sanctioned, 501(c)7 non-profit, with the new nomenclature, Malakoff Ex-Students & Alumni Association.

The association is managed by an entirely volunteer board of directors who contribute freely of their time, energy, talent and, often, money to keep this organization in operation. Without their perseverance, dedication and, most of all, love of their Malakoff High, this organization would not be able to exist.

    If you would like to volunteer your time and talent to serve as an officer on the board, or as a volunteer on one of the committees, please contact us. Officers must be able to attend 5-6 board meetings per year. Typically between May - September meetings are held in Malakoff. They also must be willing to serve on the Homecoming Committee and others as needed. Nominations for officers are solicited during the annual reunion from the general membership. These nominees are then voted on by the board for open positions.

    We are a 501(c)7 non-profit, social organization.
    Due to current IRS regulations, donations are not currently tax deductible.
