Alumni Association Board

The Mission of the Alumni Association Board is to build a dynamic program through which to engage the alumni of each of our founding schools: Low-Heywood, King School, Thomas, Low-Heywood Thomas, and King Low Heywood Thomas. The Board works to create new opportunities through which our Alumni can both commemorate the unique history of their personal alma mater and recognize the accomplishments of a unified and strong independent school. We wish to inspire lifelong relationships with the School, and instill pride in the 150 years of excellence our Schools celebrate.
