New at WLHS! The WLHS Young Alumni Leaders Council (YALC) is a volunteer committee of Christ-centered, successful, and motivated young alumni professionals dedicated to fostering and sustaining relationships with young Wisco graduates to keep them engaged and actively involved in supporting the school’s mission to prepare young adults for productive, Christ-centered lives in a diverse world. The YALC assists the Mission Advancement Office with developing programs and communications tailored to young alumni. The YALC also acts to shepherd the development of volunteers and future leaders in ways that deepen their commitment to WLHS and prepare them for active alumni leadership roles.
