Welcome Alumni

Today's King represents an evolving community bred from five distinct institutions – Low-Heywood, The King School, Thomas, Low-Heywood Thomas and King Low Heywood Thomas. These schools, each with rich histories and cultures of their own, have evolved into a cohesive community that embraces the diverse traditions and values of its founding institutions.

There is no better representation of the important history that makes up the fabric of today’s King than our alumni community. As you value the memories and mission of your own alma mater, take the time to visit our campus, read Quest magazine, and connect with your favorite faculty members who are still at King – you’ll see these values reflected and celebrated in our current culture.

Please join us at an event, consider volunteering and contact our Development Office to learn more about the many ways you can get involved!

For more information please contact the Development Office at alumni@kingschoolct.org or call (203) 322-3496 ext. 4418.

My King Story

Celebrating and creating memories

Rosinne Chlala '68

"We all became close friends and are close still; we celebrate milestones together."

Emphasizing “and” not “or”

Ahmed M. Fattouh '91

"King produces well rounded graduates with diverse interests in and out of the classroom which helped me genuinely relate to many more people, which has been key to my career and life."

Nurturing a love of art

Bernard Edwards '91
“When I was at KLHT, I was in search of myself and screaming for individuality. My teachers nurtured that by guiding me toward art.”

Following Natural Curiosity to the Top of Biomedical Research 

King alumna Dr. Joy Gaylinn Reidenberg LHT’79 was raised by extraordinarily patient parents. Her father, naturally squeamish and prone to seasickness, braved persistent nausea to serve as captain of the skiff that ferried her on childhood fishing voyages. Reidenberg followed her curiosity to become a world-renowned biomedical research scientist who studies comparative anatomy. Today, she is a professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and has served as a guest investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and as an associate scientist at the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian Institution.

Brothers on the Frontlines

At first glance, brothers Jeff Becker K’83 and Jim Becker K’80 are opposites. Jeff is a financial sector CEO living on the East Coast, and Jim is a community foundation CEO living on the West Coast. Jeff races McLarens and Jim casts flies. Jeff skis among spruce trees and Jim studies family trees. But look closer and their similarities emerge. They are innovative leaders within their industries. They are steeped in philanthropy, Jeff through his role on the board of Americares, Jim through his work on the front lines of the community foundation RCF Connects.
