Alumni

The Power of Connection

King School represents an evolving community that derived from five distinct institutions – Low-Heywood School, The King School, Thomas School, 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 of alumni who embrace the diverse traditions and values of their 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 dear members of our community, we hope you'll come back to campus, read Quest magazine, and remain connected with your favorite teachers and coaches.

Please join us at an event, consider volunteering, and find out how you can get involved. For more information, please contact the Alumni Engagement Office at alumni@kingschoolct.org or call (203) 322-3496 ext. 4418.

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.
