As Alumni Council President and Alumni Representative to the Board of Trustees, I make volunteering a priority because I consider my time at Branson to have been one of the formative experiences of my life. My fellow council members and I have worked together to plan events, from BransonTalks, to alumni Giants game outings, to holiday parties and reunions. We have interviewed, nominated and elected ‘Distinguished Alumni’ recipients. We have fundraised for teachers and financial aid. We have encouraged fellow alums to reengage with the school in meaningful ways. But, for me, the best part is being back on campus and in regular contact with some of Branson’s biggest stars, such as Nathalio Gray, Kate Moore, Rich Parsons, Jeff Symonds, and Head of School, Chris Mazzola.
Alums in all places and across all fields have the ability to add value. I hope that you will join us and consider becoming more involved as a volunteer. Next year, Branson celebrates its 100th birthday. Together, we can lead the school into a wildly successful second century.
