"Welcome Norwayne Alumni & Friends"

The Norwayne Alumni & Friends web site was created in 2009 as a gift to the Norwayne Alumni and Friends organization by the Norwayne class of 1969 to commemorate their 40th year reunion.

The class of 1969 dedicates this site to all Norwayne Alumni & Friends. Please use and enjoy the site as a means to stay in touch with schoolmates, classmates, family and friends. We also hope that you will share information and contribute financially to the goals of The Norwayne Alumni & Friends organization.

Norwayne Class of 1969 Motto - "ONWARD TO CONQUER THE IMPOSSIBLE
