In October, 1921, The Charlotte Observer declared the newly completed Roanoke Rapids High School to be "the largest and finest high school building in North Carolina." (For more information see School History)

Today, the Senior High Building is on the National Register of Historical Places, and it continues to function as an active school building.

The RRHS Alumni & Friends Association was formed with the primary purpose of restoring and maintaining the Senior Building so that it can continue to be a source of inspiration for students and educators in the years to come.

The mission of the Roanoke Rapids High School Alumni and Friends Association is to organize support for the restoration of the Senior Building, to foster the preservation of other structures and artifacts associated with Roanoke Rapids High School, and to promote a sense of community among alumni and friends.
