Spouses of Horatio Alger Members, referred to as Life Partners, participate in the mission of the Association.
The Life Partners Program was created to foster their ongoing involvement in Association activities and enable communication between them and with Association Members and Scholars. In addition to enhancing the Association’s overall esprit de corps, the bonds of friendship that exist among Life Partners are strengthened as they participate in Association events, including the Awards Activities, Membership and Board of Directors meetings, and regional gatherings. Life Partners often host parts of these meetings and they are particularly engaged in the Association’s outreach to its scholarship recipients.
The Chair of the Life Partners has traditionally been the spouse of the Association’s current President and CEO.
