Class Agents

Cranbrook Schools Class Agents serve the vital role of helping to increase and sustain alumni giving to The Cranbrook Schools Fund. They typically work in teams of two to four to educate their fellow classmates on the importance of the Fund as it relates to the success of the school, and they inspire participation in supporting the Schools through the Fund.

  • About Class Secretaries

    Major responsibilities of Class Secretaries include communicating with classmates regularly through a variety of channels and assisting the school in maintaining good contact information for classmates. They solicit life updates and submit a class notes column for the school publication Tradition at least once a year. They are the first point of contact when the alumni office needs to communicate important information to their class, such as the loss of a classmate or faculty member. They assist the alumni office in maintaining good contact information for their classmates.

    Depending on the needs of the class, secretaries may serve independently or as a team, striving to ensure that all members of their class are reached in a consistent manner and given opportunities to share their news. For milestone reunions they assist with communication, helping to recruit and/or serve on the reunion planning committee.

    NOTE: All alumni updates should be submitted directly to your Class Secretary. The alumni office cannot accept individual updates on graduates. Check the list below for the name of your Class Secretary. Email the alumni office at alumni@cranbrook.edu if you need contact information for your class secretary. If your class has not had notes in a while, or there is no Class Secretary listed for your class, let us know if you are interested in supporting your class as a Class Secretary.
