Join the Alumni Board

Board members at the CLC Funnyraiser

You have something unique to give. You can help the Alumni Association grow membership, develop benefits, offer services and plan events that can change lives.

A career exploration event can create a new path for a student or a fundraiser brings in money to help a single mom who is trying to get new skills for a coveted job.  The Alumni Scholarship Fund can offer an alum money for classes that will help them move up to a better job and higher income. You can help by serving as a director on our Alumni Association Board.
