The Horatio Alger Alumni Association was established in 2004 for National Scholars who had graduated from college in recognition of the Association’s 20th anniversary of scholarship giving. The first Alumni Summit was held in 2004 and led to the formation of the Alumni Advisory Committee (AAC) as well as the Proclamation that has subsequently guided the work of the Alumni Association. At the 2007 Summit in Washington, D.C., the Alumni Association developed the Blueprint for Success to build on the work accomplished under the Proclamation in 2004. In November 2014, the AAC voted to expand a number of their services to a larger constituency, drawing in Horatio Alger Association State Scholar Alumni; in 2015, two State Scholar Alumni were appointed as advisers to the AAC and tasked with drafting plans to expand Association resources to the entire alumni population.
The Alumni Advisory Committee is a ten-member governing board for the Alumni Association. It also serves in an advisory capacity to the Horatio Alger Association’s Executive Committee. The committee also oversees the implementation and management of the Alumni Ambassador Program, the vehicle for all Alumni volunteering. Committee members are elected by the Alumni through an online selection process. Current members are:
