The Alumni Council reconvened after summer break for its first meeting of the 2017-18 school year on Monday, September 18. As is tradition, the meeting began with a special guest, typically someone from within the School's faculty, administration or Board of Trustees. Betty Noel, director of equity and diversity and Upper School science teacher, joined the group as special guest to speak about the recent and upcoming equity and diversity initiatives at Browning. The meeting also included an in-depth review of alumni participation in the 16-17 Annual Fund; a record number of alumni donated and the Alumni Council again reached 100% participation for the eighth year in a row. Further, the Alumni Association is gearing up for its first big event of the school year, the Class of 2000 Distinguished Speaker Series on October 25 featuring a CFO panel. Alumni, current parents, select past parents, Trustees and faculty are invited and registration is required here. Please contact Director of Alumni Affairs Laura Lanigan with any questions. Hope to see you there!
