Alumni Board

The Brooks School Alumni Board aims to bolster the ongoing relationship between the school and its alumni base. The appointment of Alumni Board President Jon Gibbons '92 in fall 2015, along with the addition of several active members and a new committee structure, re-energized the group of volunteers, resulting in a flurry of fresh initiatives. Each sub-committee — nominating, events, career advisory, giving and class volunteers — has recorded significant accomplishments, including the selection of three new members, an arts career panel during Alumni Weekend, successful Giving Days and a multi-city volunteer day that supported four different charities. These recent successes act as a springboard for the sub-committees, as they take on greater initiatives to help bring Brooks’ alumni base closer together in a meaningful way. The board is always interested in hearing from classmates about potential projects and possible board members.
