Young Alumni Committee

The committee established an endowment that funds scholarships for students to attend conferences, trainings and leadership seminars, and they were the first to officially name a classroom as part of ongoing efforts to improve technology throughout the school. YAC members raise money by hosting the annual Reid Parker Memorial Golf Tournament and work together to increase student enrollment and alumni participation. 

In 2016, the YAC Endowment for Leadership Training provided 12 students with scholarships to attend workshops and conferences, and the new Alumni Legacy Classroom was named in their honor. Proceeds from their fundraising efforts will now go towards a new endowment to support undergraduate scholarships in each of the school's disciplines.

New Member Nominations

The YAC is currently accepting nominations for new members from Warnell Alumni, Faculty and Staff. Eligible alumni must be within ten years of completing their last degree and should be willing to support the school's fundraising initiatives as a current (FY17) donor. Nominate a young alumnus online by March 15.
