    Stay Involved

    Why Should You Stay Involved with Your Alma Mater?   If you're like most people, you may not have the tightest connection with your high school alma mater. It's typical for graduates to go out into the world, heading off to college, trade school, the workforce or the armed forces. It’s the beginning of adult life.   As time goes on, we tend to lose a strong sense of connection with the schools we attended in our formative years. But more than any yearbook, class ring or Facebook group, staying engaged and involved with your alma mater is a great way to keep that connection—and even help out current students in meaningful ways.   Even if you are someone who put considerable distance between your high school and your current life, you can still stay involved. And, a good place to start is by joining Ripon Tiger Nation.   Why should you stay connected?   There are many beneficial reasons to stay involved with your high school as an alumni—more than just for nostalgia’s sake. Here are just a few examples:   High schools are always looking for examples of successful alumni. From mentorships and speaking engagements to a feature in the newsletter, your alma mater wants to see that its students have gone on to achieve something. Panels, workshops and seminars are all popular with staff and parents. Schools often seek leaders and contributors for these events and frequently find the best option is an alumnus. Reconnecting with former teachers and peers through an alumni network helps grow your personal and professional circles. There’s no telling what opportunities will come from simply reaching out to those who were important to you from your past. You can have a voice. If you’re someone in a position to donate time or money to your alma mater, being an active alumnus can afford you all sorts of benefits. This includes having key input when it comes to the future direction of the school district. It’s fun! You’ll get the chance to connect with current students and staff and involve yourself in numerous ways. You might work directly with student organizations or assist administrators as they enrich a school's programs or services.   Your high school days may be behind you, but your opportunities to involve yourself in the future of your alma mater have just begun. Reach out to Ripon High School through our alumni network and explore the many possibilities for affecting real, positive change.
