A new program established by the directors of the Highlands Foundation seeks nominations for Board membership from, or for, young alumni; “young” in this case meaning having graduated from Highlands within the past ten years.
The board thought it important to expose young graduates to how a foundation like Highlands’ operates as a separate nonprofit whose mission is to support the University. Young Alumni will be full board members, but will be limited to a single three-year term in order to provide the opportunity to one candidate each year. Young Alumni are eligible to be reelected after a one year waitout.
Letters of nomination, for oneself or another, should include a resume and a letter describing the candidate’s reasons for seeking membership, experience in nonprofits, if any, work and education history, and contact information.
