Alumni
Proctor Academy alumni have a special bond that continues throughout the years after graduation. Our alumni network is active and engaged.
Proctor's 5,000 alumni live around the globe, and while their time in Andover spans generations, their shared experiences living an unwavering educational mission creates a lifelong connection to Proctor. The Proctor Alumni Association seeks to connect alumni with each other through network receptions, a mentoring program, regional events, and increased attendance at Alumni Reunion each year. The PAA also works to connect alumni with current students through engagement in Project Period, Senior Project, and guest visits in academic courses. Learn more about joining the PAA below!

Proctor Alumni Association Council

List of 4 items.

  • Walter Perry '73 | PAA President | Concord, NH

    Walter currently owns a small business, Cornerstone Association Management, that provides business and administrative services to nonprofit organizations throughout New England. It is a rewarding experience to work with volunteers in helping and guiding them to accomplish their goals and objectives. Walter and Betsey are in the process of moving to Western North Carolina to participate in the many outdoor activities the area has to offer.

    Goals for the Proctor Alumni Association:
    Walter is looking to build on the foundation that he and the other council members have created over the past several years. His goal is to build even more opportunities for engagement among alums and with Proctor and in doing so ensure a vibrant and active Proctor Alumni Association. In his last term as the PAA President, Walter has met many alumni and heard many incredible Proctor stories. The momentum of our Proctor Alumni Association is building and he is happy to be a part of the excitement and watch alumni rekindle their connection with Proctor both on campus and at regional events.
  • Ryan Bowse '93 | Vice President | San Francisco, CA

    Ryan is the father of two young boys, married to fellow PA alumni Cassie Heaton Bowse ‘95, and, together, they call San Francisco, CA home. In his professional life Ryan works as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Ravenna Solutions, an educational technology software company. He is honored and truly ecstatic to be running for re-election of Vice President of the PAA Council.. Ryan has played a leading role in helping the PAA to grow and develop during his last term, and is excited and motivated to continue to give back to Proctor and his fellow alums.
     
    Goals for the Proctor Alumni Association:
    While serving, Ryan’s goal is to help foster lasting relationships between alumni, the school, and the larger community. He and Cassie hosted a great alumni networking event in San Francisco last October, and are connected with a supportive group of alums on the West Coast who regularly attend events. It’s exciting to report that the group keeps growing as the Proctor Alumni Association gains recognition. It is his hope to serve another term as Vice President and continue our positive momentum and growing network. Proctor alums all across the country now have the opportunity to get involved, reconnect, and foster wonderful relationships with other alumni in their area. He hopes to serve as a catalyst for those relationships to develop.
  • Brittany King '06 | Council Member | Andover, MA

    A 2006 Proctor graduate, an alumni of Wheaton College in 2010 and Lesley University in 2011, Brittany has spent the last eight years teaching in the New England area. Ever since her high school graduation, Brittany has enjoyed staying in touch with PA alumni through the various events hosted in the Boston area. If you ask her, Brittany is often quick to confess that Proctor is a special place to her mainly because of the people. She is forever grateful of the mentors who helped to shape who she is today; and, like many alumni, it was at Proctor where she truly learned how to learn.

    Goals for the Proctor Alumni Association:
    Brittany recognizes alumni have settled around the country (and globe), but there are specific areas with a higher concentration of alums and believes we can increase community by providing varied opportunities for alumni to connect, share, and create new Proctor memories at regional events and on-campus celebrations. Marrying alumni interests with Proctor’s values through on-campus fundraising events (like a Faculty, Friends, and Alumni Fun Run 5K event) would be great way for alumni to reconnect on Proctor’s land and give back to Proctor and its community members. Brittany also knows the power of social media in engaging and leveraging connections within Proctor’s alumni network and sees an opportunity to utilize social media to share alumni stories from around the globe.
  • Nate Blouin '07 | Council Member | Salt Lake City, UT

    After graduating in 2007 and a brief stint at Denison University, Nate spent much of the next 5 years skiing in Utah. He completed his BS in Writing and Rhetoric Studies at the University of Utah in 2017 and will receive a Master's in Public Affairs from Brown University this summer. His professional work includes political experience in campaigns at the municipal, state and federal levels, and he plans to enter nonprofit management upon finishing his MPA.

    Goals for the Proctor Alumni Association:
    Nate hopes to expand PAA's engagement by encouraging more frequent events in locations across the country as a way to develop personal and professional relationships that strengthen the Proctor network. Nate wants to work with current Proctor students to increase participation after graduation and identify areas where alumni can help network with young alums.
