Why should you join DAF?

Can you imagine all Dunbar seniors receiving scholarship funds to go to college and successfully completing? How about there being sufficient funding to finance student, faculty and parent development? What about Dunbar becoming all it can be academically and socially? Can all classes work together not only to fellowship with each other but also to give back to their Alma Mater that helped to make them become successful? Can we make sure our museum becomes a sustainable depository and exhibitor of the Dunbar history and legacy? These are but a few elements of our vision of the success and effectiveness of the Dunbar Alumni Federation and the Dunbar High School. If you share this vision, we invite you to join the Federation to make this vision a reality!
