Alumni Board

The Brooks School Alumni Board aims to bolster the ongoing relationship between the school and its alumni base. Sally Milliken '88, P'22, P'24 assumes the role of Alumni Board president, following former president Jon Gibbons '92, P'24. With this leadership change and the addition of several new members, the 2020-2021 year has great potential. Past successes act as a springboard for each committee, as they take on greater initiatives to help bring Brooks’ alumni closer to the school and to one another.

The board is always interested in hearing from classmates about potential projects and board members. If you have an idea or are interested in joining the Alumni Board, please contact alumni@brooksschool.org.

Looking ahead

In June of 2020, the Alumni Board met virtually to have a conversation about anti-racism, Black Lives Matter and the ways in which this group can support students and alumni as it pertains to topics of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. This group will work in alignment with the school to ensure that conversations and actions happen in order to further the school's work on these topics.
