Highland Alumni Committee
The purpose of the Highland Alumni Committee, in partnership with The Highland Foundation, is to engage, solicit and establish a Highland alumni donor base, as well as to enhance the presence of this group in the Highland community. The goal is to resonate the importance of Highland community pride and perpetual support from its members – past, present and future. The committee works to increase alumni participation in The Highland Foundation events and charitable giving and maintain and foster collaborative relationships for future initiatives.
In 2017, the committee hosted its first annual Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. Although we have much work to do, we are confident that the Hall of Fame will become a way to recognize and promote the legacy of Highland Local Schools for past and future generations.
Current honorees are Highland graduates who have achieved success in their careers and/or have made significant contributions in their fields, as well as to society, the state and/or on a global scale.
