• Who Is SABC?

    Welcome to the SOC Alumni Bear Cave, the official home of the South Oak Cliff High School Alumni Association. The association was co-founded by the late H. Lawrence King, Jr. ('85), Anthony Canady ('87), and other fellow SOC Alumni in 2008.

    In an effort to strengthen the South Oak Cliff Alumni family and the South Oak Cliff community, the SOC Alumni Bear Cave (SABC) Alumni Association cultivates, stewards, and nurtures lifelong relationships between Alumni and members of the South Oak Cliff community. We commit ourselves to connect with you and look forward to your involvement and participation in our many events, celebrations, community service, education and mentoring programs, as well as, leadership programs. 

    The SOC Alumni Bear Cave Alumni Association is dedicated to actively supporting South Oak Cliff High School and its feeder schools. We aspire to become recognized as the most supportive alumni associations in the State of Texas and eventually the nation.

    Our mission is to help our students become successful leaders of tomorrow. To accomplish this mission, we will provide support to the SOC administrators and teachers, be involved in our community, and mold the minds of our future alumni.
