The Noble Alumni Association launched in Summer 2018 and has continued to grow ever since. The Noble Alumni Association’s mission is to establish and promote a life-long relationship between the Noble Network, alumni, and Chicago community. Their aim is to connect Noble alumni through their five core values: leadership, advocacy, community, empowerment, and development.

In April 2019, the Noble Alumni Association created their inaugural board with 10 members from all over the Noble network. The board meets once a month to help plan activities that support Noble alumni. They also receive professional development through Noble’s Alumni Career Office.

I have seen how powerful alumni networks can be for individuals even as early as high school. Seeing how poorly some institutions retain and interact with their alumni, I want to help build something meaningful that can be a powerful tool for others from Noble to succeed.

For me, education was my “light at the end of the tunnel.” It was clear to me, given my circumstance, there was no other alternative. Luckily, I was extremely blessed to have gained a supportive cohort of teachers and counselors during my tenure at my perspective Noble campus- Gary Comer College Prep. It was because of them and their consistency that I attribute much of my success. Now, I want to give back that sense of community and support I was so blessed to have.
