Led by Alumni Board President, Taylor Cope '01, and partnering with Latin’s Alumni Office, the Alumni Board is a vibrant group of Alumni – with ages spanning six decades – who are involved in many aspects of the community. From serving as ambassadors to and for the Alumni Association at-large (now more than 4,500 members strong), to volunteering in key roles at many of Latin’s events (Auction, Reunion Weekend, Scholarship Dinner), to participating in a number of Alumni events throughout the year, Latin’s Alumni Board members are a vital part of the greater Latin community.

The Board holds four meetings annually, and each meeting offers opportunities to learn about and engage in the latest topics for both the school and the Alumni community. To learn more about the Board, or to inquire about membership e-mail Stephanie Chu at alumni@latinschool.org.
