At Wildwood, the hands-on, innovative, and individualized approach is a way of life—and things are no different when it comes to alumni. The new Class Connectors program is a fresh spin on the traditional class representative, emphasizing approachability, personal touches, and the opportunity to have each and every alumni voice heard. The mission of the Class Connectors program is to link alumni with one another, Wildwood’s campus, and the greater community, forging strong connections along the way. Class Connectors will work closely with the Alumni Council and contribute to all aspects of alumni life, including events, program development, and outreach. The five principles that inform the Class Connectors program— connect, gather, engage, give, and thrive—encompass an extensive range of responsibilities, from collecting class notes and spreading the word about upcoming events, to supporting Wildwood philanthropically and creating opportunities for fellow alumni in professional settings. Any Wildwood alumni searching for ways to be more involved are encouraged to become a Class Connector. For more information, contact alumni@wildwood.org. Announcing Alumni “Class Connectors”
