Alumni Council

The Alumni Council is the primary volunteer leadership group for alumni of The Webb Schools. We consist of 40 men and women, who represent seven decades and many regions worldwide. The Council’s goals are to connect alumni to Webb, Webb to the alumni body, and alumni with each other.

The Alumni Council meets four times a year to plan programs and activities which benefit the Webb community. These include:

  • Career Evening – alumni guest speakers share their career experiences with sophomores
  • Senior Dinner – annual event to welcome the newest class of alumni to our alumni family
  • Regional alumni events include cultural and sporting activities and networking opportunities
  • Webb At Work internship opportunities and shadow days for young alumni in college
  • Affinity Groups for Women of Webb (alumnae networking), Webb15 (young alumni group for classes of the past 15 years), and Latinos of Webb.
  • Archival projects in support of our Centennial Celebration in 2022. These include the Teachers of Webb Survey and the Oral History Video Project.

If you would like to contact the Alumni Council with a question or comment, please email alumni@webb.org, or login to the Online Community.
