Alumni Internship Program
The MPCS Alumni Internship Program provides opportunities for alumni would like to partner with the school in gaining valuable hands-on experience within a particular department of the school that relates to the career they are pursuing.
Greetings to all MPCS alumni, from the first graduating class of 1988 to the most recent graduating class of 2020!
Despite a world-wide pandemic, I am encouraged by the growth and direction of the MPCS alumni program. Many positives have resulted from the pandemic, which has pushed us to think more strategically and intentionally about what it takes to grow a sustainable, successful alumni program.
Consider the following:
- The MPCS Network recently launched, and we are encouraged that we have 600-plus members of the MPCS community using the new platform.
- The alumni council has been incredibly faithful in attending the quarterly meetings.
- Alumni are engaging with the school, “giving back” by volunteering their time and resources. Already, ten alumni have been a part of offering school-wide morning devotions!
- MPCS is committed to its alumni through resource allocation, including funding the trusted and robust MPCS Network. The administration also approved a new Alumni Internship Program initiative, which will serve our younger alumni.
In my three years in this position, I have learned that growing an alumni program does not occur overnight. It takes a commitment from many to make it happen.
I encourage every alumnus/alumna to join with us in making the MPCS Alumni Association the best K-12 Independent School association in the Southeast! I hope you will partner with us in this exciting venture and reconnect with this special community we call Mount Paran Christian School.
