Imperial Guard Alumnae (IGA) is composed of former members of Houston’s S.P. Waltrip High
School Imperial Guard, an all girl drill team that served the school and community from 1960-1982. The IGA is a non-profit,
501 © organization whose mission is to preserve the identity of the Imperial Guard as well as its spirit and ideals.
These include personal integrity, achievement, growth and teamwork.
The organization achieves through: 1) community
service projects with particular emphasis on helping women in need 2) financial and moral support of S.P. Waltrip High School
and its current girl’s organization, The Rambling Roses. 3) encouragement and recognition of scholastic achievement
through annual scholarship(s) award(s) to deserving applicants and 4) promotion of teamwork and personal growth among members
through committee and project participation.
Scholarships: Since 1998, IGA has presented over $278,000
in scholarships to worthy students from Waltrip and/or Waltrip Alumni. Scholarships are given on the basis of financial need,
scholastic achievement, activities, awards, honors, leadership, and community/volunteer service.
As part of its commitment to community service, IGA “adopted” Sally’s House, a Salvation Army transitional
residence for women who have completed a substance abuse detoxification program. Sally’s House provided women with a
safe atmosphere in which to build the skills and stability to become economically and emotionally self-sufficient. IGA visited
Sally’s House, providing shared activities with the residents, including seasonal decorating and mini-workshops. IGA
members also donate clothing, books and toiletries to the residents. Due to Sally's House change in service, IGA will be working
to help Samatarian Purse and IGA will work to serve Waltrip in general and other service needs in the community, state and

The alumnnae organization operates as we did long ago through the values underlying
this creed: Praetorian Creed.
"By this creed, I pledge my allegiance to the Waltrip Imperial Guard. As
those before me have done, I will to the best of my ability uphold the standards and ideals of this organization. May the
end always crown our work and God willing, may it last forever."
