Alumni Visitor Policy Harker encourages and enjoys having alumni stop by the alumni office to visit, tour the campus and visit with current students, faculty and staff. As alumni you are expected to follow the same policy as other visitors to the campus. All visitors are stopped at the guard station and if you do not have a scheduled appointment, just let security know you are a graduate stopping by for a visit. Security will ask for your name, issue a parking pass, call the receptionist to announce your arrival on campus and instruct you to go to the front desk where a name badge will be issued. The receptionist will call the alumni director, Terry Walsh, (or someone assigned to greet alumni in her absence) and she will meet you at the front desk. The visitor policy applies to the school day from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and does not apply for alumni events.

Alumni Award Nominations Do you know an alumnus/alumna who is a dedicated volunteer? Who has an outstanding career? Who has achievement in service? If so, please let us know! The Harker Alumni Association (HAA) alumni awards are selected annually and presented at the All Alumni Day and Awards. Send your nominations to Terry Walsh at terryw@ harker.org. n HAA Distinguished Alumni Award This award honors alumni who have displayed distinctive achievement in a chosen field of endeavor and outstanding service to society or their communities.

n HAA Phyllis Carley Service Award Phyllis Carley, whose care, commitment, talent and love of children spanned the years of her employment at Harker, lends her name to this award, which recognizes alumni or other friends who have unselfishly devoted their time and energies and made significant contributions towards advancing the programs of The Harker School.

Alumni Class Year Agents An Alumni Class Agent program is being established as part of the Harker Alumni Association. Each graduating class year needs a lead class agent and one or two class agents. The time commitment is not a big one and the work can be done from home. Agents will be given a current roster for their graduating class with the contact information Harker currently has in the alumni database and detailed instructions on how to proceed. Agents will Google, e-mail, use friends or other resources they have to get current contact information and updates on all their classmates. Updates will be submitted to the alumni director for use in the alumni notes. HAA class agents will meet once a year in the fall (this year the meeting will probably be in early January) to review progress of the Harker Alumni Association, discuss and plan for alumni involvement opportunities and nominate candidates for the annual alumni awards. There are a few other responsibilities included in the job descriptions; for more information and to find out if your class year is still in need of agents, contact alumni director Terry Walsh at terryw@harker.org or 408.345.9205.

n HAA Community Service Award This award recognizes the outstanding contributions and accomplishments of alumni who have devoted their time and talent in service to their communities.
