As alums of Philadelphia Futures and White-Williams Scholars, you are members of a very special community. We hope that in the years to come, you'll maintain strong ties to the organization, and remain actively involved in our work. An Alumni Network will provide support, guidance and professional contacts to your alums and to current students.
Share your milestones with the Alumni Network. Perhaps you’ve started a new position, received a promotion at work, purchased a home, gotten married or engaged or received an award in the community? We want to hear about it so we can celebrate your accomplishment, and share the news with your classmates!
Thank you to all of the Sponsor-A-Scholar alums who joined us on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at South Bowl for the Sponsor-A-Scholar 25th Anniversary Alumni Reunion! It was a fantastic day of reconnecting, networking, and of course, bowling fun. We hope that all of our alums will stay engaged with our organization and help to support the next generation of Philadelphia Futures scholars.
