Help compile a listing of Antelope Valley High School Notable Alumni. Provide as much information about a notable alumni and email us at info@avhsalumni.org or leave a response on our Facebook site @AVHS Alumni. We plan to use the list to serve as a source for articles in future alumni newsletters, a possible 2012 Centennial Yearbook and a continuing resource here on the AVHS Alumni.org website. If you have any questions or suggestions, email us at info@avhsalumni.org. Thanks.
