Forever Falcons Memorial Tribute

During our virtual 2020 Pine Forge Academy Alumni Weekend, we plan to recognize and honor our deceased Alumni with a video tribute.  We ask that you submit the names and information of classmates who have passed away since September 1, 2019.  

This resource will also serve as a dynamic historical reference in order to keep accurate records of our “Forever Falcons”.  Help us to honor those who we have lost by submitting their names in the link below.


Class Ambassadors


  • Are you the official spokesperson for your class?
  • Do your classmates look to you as the “planner” for alumni events?
  • Do you keep your class connected and informed?

If you answered yes, then you’re a CLASS AMBASSADOR and your Alumni Association is looking for you!

We are looking to reconnect with every Alumni Class from 1946 to present!
We need two Ambassadors from each Class. 

So, what exactly is a Class Ambassador? What are the duties of a Class Ambassador? Can anyone from my class be an Ambassador?

Our Class Ambassadors will serve as the liaison between the  NPFAAA and their respective classmates, and will promote and share NPFAAA initiatives:

  • Adulting 101 : Virtual Series (Alumni Presenters)
  • Honor Class Parade
  • Membership Drive
  • Alumni Cares Scholarship Fund
  • All PFA Alumni Class Zoom Reunion : Alumni Air Time Commercials
  • Alumni 2020 T-shirt Fundraiser
  • Annual Business Mtg/Elections

Class Ambassadors will serve on Alumni Teams supporting the current Administration’s focus areas of : Alumni Engagement, Fundraising, Membership Recruitment & Retention, Student Development and Strategic Planning. The Teams will represent every decade of our membership & assist with a more balanced approach to our Alumni celebrations. The Teams will meet once a month for 2021. The NPFAAA Officers will meet with Class Ambassadors twice a year.
