The love of Peddie among our alumni is strong.
There are a number of ways to remain connected and help to enrich the school community. Share your networking knowledge with students, host an event, encourage classmates’ support of the Peddie Fund or serve as a class agent, class secretary or reunion class captain. With a viewpoint of the past, and a vision for the future, alumni inspire our students, faculty and each other.
Peddie Connect is Peddie's online community, providing professional and social networking opportunities for Peddie alumni, faculty and staff, parents and friends. Access job and internship postings, give and/or receive career advice and, most importantly, connect simply, securely and easily with your Peddie community. With a directory open to a network of close to 10,000 individuals, you can find contact information for fellow alumni and friends via a variety of customized searches. So, whether you’re hoping to expand your professional contacts, land your first job, prepare for a mid-career change or simply find Peddie alumni who live in your area, take advantage of the variety of resources and opportunities that await you.
Established in 2015, the Peddie Leadership Council offers a unique opportunity to become more deeply engaged with the school. Comprised of a select group of longstanding Peddie volunteers, members of the PLC not only support the school financially, but share their time, counsel and professional expertise in ways that help further Peddie’s mission and strategic objectives. The PLC meets on campus twice a year and engages in high-level discussions with Headmaster Peter Quinn and his senior leadership team, along with faculty and students.
Class Agents serve as important ambassadors for Peddie, as well as conduits between the school and their classmates. As one of our most important resources, you represent Peddie in your efforts to encourage financial support from members of your class and promote alumni engagement. Your work is critical to our success each year and in the long-term, and your communication provides a meaningful and personalized outreach to our alumni.
Reunion Class Captains are a valuable and loyal group of alumni volunteers who represent their individual class years. Responsible for helping to drive alumni participation at reunion gatherings, Class Captains communicate regularly with their peers, keep them informed of upcoming events or recent Peddie news and help promote class participation in the Peddie Fund.
Class Secretaries serve to foster community, maintain connections among classmates and act as a conduit for an active dialog between alumni and the Peddie community at large. Secretaries contribute written notes for each installment of the Peddie Chronicle, consisting of any pertinent developments in the lives of classmates and their immediate families or related alumni.
More than 20 years after graduating from Peddie, I am called upon by mentors, educators, administrators and dear friends that I shared the experience with and am always so happy to hear of their successes and share stories of our time together there. Damion Williams '96
