Elm Tree Society

The Elm Tree Society is made up of a select group of tour guides who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in helping the Admissions Office. This may include representing the school at the Fall Open House, In-Home Receptions, or other admissions events during the year.

An Elm Tree Society member has also proven himself or herself as a consistent and reliable tour guide who is confident, well spoken and poised. Members of Elm Tree vote new members into the Society each spring.
