Stay Involved

Why Should You Stay Involved with Your Alma Mater?

 

If you're like most people, you may not have the tightest connection with your high school alma mater. It's typical for graduates to go out into the world, heading off to college, trade school, the workforce or the armed forces. It’s the beginning of adult life.

 

As time goes on, we tend to lose a strong sense of connection with the schools we attended in our formative years. But more than any yearbook, class ring or Facebook group, staying engaged and involved with your alma mater is a great way to keep that connection—and even help out current students in meaningful ways.

 

Even if you are someone who put considerable distance between your high school and your current life, you can still stay involved. And, a good place to start is by joining.
