Alumni Engagement

The Foundation for Orange County Public Schools is the philanthropic arm of OCPS. As the district's sole designated direct-support organization charged with leading philanthropic efforts, our purpose is to invest in our students today to strengthen our community tomorrow. We secure time, talent and treasure, and serve as a one-stop shop for community involvement as well as the fiscal agent for school funds. During Orange County Public Schools 150th anniversary year, the Foundation launched our new Alumni Relations program. 
 
In its inaugural year, our Alumni Relations program provides former OCPS students, employees, parents, volunteers and community partners the opportunity to celebrate OCPS milestones, learn where we’ve been and where we’re going, and reconnect with local schools and OCPS family members. 

The Alumni webpage features alumni spotlights, school reunions and more. Be sure to visit often!
 
WHO ARE ALUMNI?
OCPS graduates or students that attended one or more OCPS schools for at least three years.

Summary: Johnny Rivers - “I was excited to be an entrepreneur with a world of opportunities through the worldwide business relationships that I developed over the years.
