What is the Maroon Society?
The Maroon Society honors outstanding Maroons who have contributed to the Austin High community with their service, commitment, and example of what it means to be Loyal Forever.
Maroon Society honorees will be announced at the Dedication Day Grand Assembly in April, and each Maroon Society honoree will receive a small scholarship for college expenses.
