Connect with Deerfield alumni and the Office of Advancement with this leadership opportunity. Apply to be an Advancement Ambassador here. The deadline is TODAY, Monday, April 5. Interviews will take place from April 5-20.
“I am fortunate to represent a part of Deerfield through my role as an advancement ambassador where I have the opportunity to connect with alumni and communities beyond the Deerfield campus. This fall, I enjoyed speaking to the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association alongside fellow student ambassadors. We were able to connect with the alumnI as we shared stories about Deerfield, the improvements and changes we have seen and would like to see, and any advice that they would like to share. Throughout the winter, there were many other engaging opportunities for ambassadors to participate in, such as appreciation videos and letters to alumni, and we played a role in decision making for the 2021 Ashley Award recipient. Although the current pandemic hinders social gatherings, all the ambassadors and advisors have gone great lengths the keep the Deerfield community spirits alive and connected. We hope to accomplish many more great things this coming winter, and I highly encourage students who have or would like to develop strong leadership, communication, and collaboration skills to join the team.” -Neha Jampala ’23
