Our website has been down for quite a while and we’re thrilled to be back with you . We hope the Blair Alumni Association website will become another place where you can go to relive the memories of three (or four) of what were some of the best years of your life.
We hope you’ll visit all of the new parts of our website. You’ll be able to enjoy the many different ways that we pay tribute to the school we all loved, and discover how you can help us support the faculty and the students of today’s Montgomery Blair High School.
Among the features you’ll be able to enjoy as a member of the Blair Alumni Association are:
the Silver Chips archives
the Silverlogue archives
the Alumni News archives
our Scholarship Program section
the many articles we have about the history of Blair and Silver Spring,
links to the school website, Silver Chips online, and other related websites,
a list of class websites and social media outlets,
and news about what’s going on at today’s Blair.
Once again, thanks for being so patient. We encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to send us information, pictures, memories and articles that we can add to our site for the enjoyment of all the Blazers who will visit it.
Get on social media, your class Facebook page, etc., and let your classmates know it’s time join the Blair Alumni Association and keep the Blair Spirit alive for all Blair grads!

Most of us love Blair because of the memories we have of great friends, great experiences, and having been part of a school with great traditions. Here is an opportunity for you, and your Class, to be a permanent part of memorializing those traditions from the past, and creating new traditions in the future. On April 22, 2018 we’ll be officially re-naming the current Blair Auditorium as Alumni Hall to celebrate this event, we’ll be holding an Alumni Weekend on April 21-22, 2018. Details are being finalized, but the general schedule calls for Friday to be open for class or multi-class gatherings and Saturday night to be an all-class social event. (Note: We’re considering including a golf outing).
ALUMNI HALL DEDICATION
On Sunday afternoon, we’ll “open” ALUMNI HALL with a reception, an unveiling of our new Wall of Honor, and a special student presentation of one of Blair’s historically wonderful Annual Shows, “The Pirates of Penzance.”
WALL of HONOR UNVEILING We are creating a way for your support of Blair to be immortalized on the new Alumni Association Wall of Honor, to be located at the entrance to ALUMNI HALL. You can help us “build” our wall by purchasing a commemorative brick tile (described below) for yourself, your family, a family member who attended Blair, or perhaps to honor a Faculty Member at Blair who made an impact on your life. We are really encouraging classmates to get together and purchase a Class Tile, to show their collective support for Blair. All of the proceeds from the sale of Wall of Honor tiles will be used to support the school, either through our Scholarship Program or through our Special Projects Fund. To date, our Scholarship Program has provided tens of thousands of dollars to support the continuing education of graduating Blair Seniors. Our Special Projects Fund has provided the school with funding for numerous activities, including three commemorative editions of the Silver Chips; scorers” tables for the Athletic Department; sponsorship of the Graduation Venue Video Contest; contributions to the students’ Human Rights class campaign; and producing the 75th and 80th anniversary events.
Please help us get this newest Blair tradition off to a good start. While our Wall of Honor will be a permanent addition to the school, we urge you to purchase your tile today. In order to assure that your tile (or your Class Tile) is among the Inaugural Contributors whose tiles will be part of the ALUMNI HALL official dedication on April 22, you need to place your order no later than March 1, 2018. Here are samples of the tile options for you, your family, and your class. These are suggested sizes – the choice is yours.
Individual Tiles – for yourself or to honor a family member or other graduate
Memorial Tiles – to honor a family member or Blair faculty member
Class Tiles – to show the ongoing appreciation of your Class for Blair’s history and traditions, and to support the future of the school through the Alumni Association’s Scholarship and Special Projects
Mark your calendar now and please join us next Spring to kick off a new Blair tradition and to join schoolmates from across the generations for another great Blazer weekend. Please note that in addition to your permanent recognition as an ALUMNI HALL contributor, all plaque purchasers will receive lifetime membership in the Alumni Association.
