I first stepped onto the FVS campus sometime in the early 1970s and can remember how it felt like a special place, even to a kid still in his early single digits of age. I am happy to report that Fountain Valley School is still that special place. My relationship with FVS began because my father was a graduate, and I’m proud to tell you that I have seven FVS graduates in my family. The School shaped us, changed us and motivated us, and continues to do that and more for today’s students, faculty and staff.
It is my pleasure to work closely with Head of School Will Webb and our board as we move the School forward, never forgetting those who came before and staying true to our mission. While we continue to grow, in many important ways, Fountain Valley remains the small and mighty school on the plains.
We produce graduates who are courageous, open-minded, self-reliant, curious and compassionate. No matter where they go in life, these qualities serve our graduates and in turn, impact the world for the greater good.
This is the value of a Fountain Valley School education, and I am both honored and humbled to be the president of the fine board that guides our great school forward.
