Posted By Melissa (Michi) A. Trota (Trota), Monday, July 22, 2019

The Avery Coonley School Distinguished Alumni Award, launched in 1994, recognizes and honors those alumni who demonstrate outstanding leadership or service to the local, national, or global community. Recipients of the Award include alumni who, through personal commitment, work ethic, and service, best demonstrate the spirit and mission of Queene Ferry Coonley’s original vision.

We're thrilled to announce that the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient is Christopher Agos ’86. Chris is an accomplished actor and voice talent known for his roles on Chicago PD, House of Cards, Grey's Anatomy, and Boss. He's appeared in hundreds of commercials and has voiced radio ads for brands such as Sprint, Ford, and United Healthcare. He is the author of Acting in Chicago, a business-focused book used by acting students in colleges around the Midwest, and writes extensively about the business of acting on the book's related website; he is also on faculty at the Acting Studio Chicago.

Since graduating from ACS, Chris has given back to the school in a multitude of ways. Chris was the founding President of the Alumni Council and served in that role from 2011-2015. During that time, he led the Council in establishing goals and partnered with the school to formalize their joint alumni engagement initiatives. He served as a Group 7 Mentor and has been a loyal supporter of ACS for many years. Chris also shared his professional expertise with ACS through his critical role in the creation of a video to celebrate the school’s history. Chris and his wife Patricia currently live in Los Angeles with their twin boys.

The Distinguished Alumni Award will be presented at the ACS 2019 All-Class Reunion on September 14 during the Saturday evening Alumni Dinner & Dance; reunion events will take place September 13-14.
