I hope you're all doing well and enjoying life to the fullest. It's such a pleasure to be reaching out to you as the new president of our Alumni Association. As we begin a new academic year, I am thrilled to share some exciting updates and extend heartfelt gratitude.
First and foremost, mark your calendars for Alumni Weekend, taking place from Oct. 6-8. I want to encourage you to return to the Lakeside even if it’s not your reunion year. The Saturday evening Alumni Lawn Party will be tons of fun and is a great opportunity to reconnect, reminisce, and celebrate the bonds that tie us to Darlington School. Click here for the entire Alumni Weekend schedule and to register.
I also want to take a moment to express our sincere thanks to all the generous alumni who supported The Darlington Fund this past year. Your generosity is truly appreciated and has made a significant impact on the growth and development of our school.
Now, speaking of giving back, I’d like to throw a little challenge your way. If you live in Georgia, let's rally together and support students through an initiative called GA GOAL Scholarship Fund. Your participation can ensure that future generations of students get to experience the magic of a Darlington experience.
As we look to the year ahead, I want to connect you with an amazing group of alumni serving on the Alumni Council, the Young Alumni Council and as your Class Agents. Click here to see who’s working to serve you. We’ve got some big plans in store this year to connect alumni with students and alumni with other alumni. Please reach out to any of us or contact the Advancement Office at email@example.com to get involved.
I can't wait to see you all at Alumni Weekend, and I'm genuinely excited about what lies ahead this school year and serving as your president.
