New Trier High School — alma mater to a long list of famous authors, actors, musicians and mayors — has a United States ambassador among its graduates.

On Oct. 22, Kenilworth-native Alaina Teplitz was sworn in as U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives, a culmination of three decades spent working for the State Department in far-flung embassies around the world, including Mongolia, Bangladesh, Albania and Afghanistan.
