Webb Hosts 2022 Holiday Gatherings
This December the Webb Advancement Team hosted a total of five different holiday parties spreading from Los Angeles to Hong Kong. Varied in size, location, and formality, these holiday gatherings were a chance to see alumni, parents, and friends to celebrate the Holiday season together.
These parties were also a chance to hear from Webb staff and faculty, as well as honor and celebrate the career of Head of Schools Taylor Stockdale and wish him well on his upcoming retirement after this school year.
On December 5, Webb hosted events in both Hong Kong and San Francisco. The event in Hong Kong was hosted by Michael Chang ‘92, P ‘23, and Denis Yip P ‘18, ‘19. Taylor Stockdale and Chief Advancement Officer Bob Fass were able to virtually join the event and give their updates and greetings to over 40 attendees. In San Francisco, more than 50 alumni and friends gathered at China Live with Taylor and Anne Stockdale and Webb Advancement Staff at the event hosted by David Myles ‘80 and Carrie Horsey.
Later in the week on December 8, over 30 young alumni gathered with Associate Head of Schools Dr. Theresa Smith, Dean of College Guidance Hector Martinez, and Director of Alumni and Donor Relations Lexus Beaman ‘08 at Cask Bar & Kitchen in New York City. Meanwhile back on the West Coast, over 130 members of the Webb community congregated at The Athenaeum in Pasadena to celebrate with Taylor and Anne Stockdale, Alf Museum Director Dr. Andy Farke, Director of Admission and Financial Aid Dr. Jamila Everett, and Webb Advancement Team members. This event was hosted by Bill Bauman ‘82.
To wrap up the Webb holiday party season, college-aged alumni were welcomed back on campus by the Webb Alumni Office on December 13 with hot chocolate, coffee, and the famous dining hall chocolate chip cookies. Alumni saw former classmates and Webb faculty, visited their favorite campus spots, and cheered on the Gauls at WSC soccer and wrestling home events.
The Webb Advancement team wishes everyone a Happy Holiday season. We are very grateful that we were able to celebrate with so many of you.
