About the HFHS Alumni Association
Founded in 2011, the Homewood-Flossmoor High School Alumni Association is a group of interested H-F graduates and friends who recently approved the organization’s first constitution and by-laws. The long-range goal of the Homewood-Flossmoor Alumni Office is to create the finest alumni and development program of any public high school – north or south - in Illinois!
Meet the Director: Ann Cherry
A native Chicagoan, Ann has worked in the not-for-profit field for more than 20 years, including St. Xavier University where she obtained her bachelor’s degree, and Lewis University in Joliet where she served as in a variety of positions in development and alumni relations. Most recently, she was the Director of Alumni and Constituent Relations at the Laboratory Schools of the University of Chicago. She is a member of CASE (Council for the Advancement of Secondary Education) and the National Fundraising Professionals organization.
Her main objective in setting up the first alumni office in H-F’s history is to create a solid database of the more than 33,000 graduates and launch a volunteer driven alumni association. Other objectives include creating an alumni speakers bureau to invite alumni back to campus to interact with our current students and the on-going development of a wide variety of special events and philanthropic programs to encourage Viking pride!
