Applewild School welcomes the involvement of its alumni in building relations and supporting outreach efforts on behalf of the School. Alumni volunteers can serve as class agents, members of the Alumni Council, solicitors for fundraising efforts and hosts for regional reunions and gatherings.
Whether you graduated last year or fifty years ago, we’d love to hear from you!
Send us a quick message or give us an update for this year’s class notes! Would you like to get in touch with a specific former teacher?
The Alumni Council
One of the ways that we stay in touch with alumni is through the Alumni Council. Consisting of former students, faculty, and staff, the council meets on a monthly basis to organize and plan events and outreach, and to select recipients of the Laverack Family Alumni Award.
The most important way that you can help out the Alumni Council is to keep us in the loop! If you have updates on projects, successes, and life events that you or your classmates wish to share with our community, don’t hesitate to contact Kelly Jennsion at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Laverack Family Alumni Award
The Laverack Family Alumni Award was established by Applewild’s founding headmaster, William Laverack, his wife, Persis Laverack, and their family to celebrate the values Mr. Laverack held as most important in life: dedication and generosity — specifically, being generous with one’s time, one’s love, and one’s life.
The award is presented annually to an alumna, alumnus, or group of affiliated alumni (such as alumni working together on a cause). It is awarded to the recipient who, in the course of their work or volunteer efforts contributed unselfishly to the common good, and whose character, spirit, and benevolent service provided respected leadership and support for the needs of their community.
Candidates for the Laverack Award are nominated every year by our own alumni. If you know an Applewild alumnus/a whose life has embodied Applewild’s core values in an exemplary way, please let us know by contacting Kelly Jennison via email at email@example.com. Please include the following in your email:
