About Alumni Ambassadors
The Alumni Ambassador program was established to help transform alumni involvement and position ETHS graduates as ambassadors for the school. The goal was to expand upon the existing Student and Parent Ambassador model to create a diverse, inclusive culture that encourages ETHS graduates to take part in the alumni community through multiple entry points.
The Alumni Ambassador program provides alums with a platform to share their unique experiences and knowledge about ETHS in the community, in support of Alumni Association events, and to assist future graduates in connecting with other alumni of ETHS. Their efforts as key influencers help to maximize the reputation of ETHS and promote community engagement that connects alumni with parents, educators, students and community.
Alumni Ambassadors are recent graduates of ETHS who help foster connections and build partnerships with the high school by participating in activities and events that make the ETHS experience a positive one for current students and other alumni. Alumni Ambassadors are interested in connecting with alumni in Evanston/Skokie, places around the world, and in specific areas of career or academic interest.
