Like a number of day students, John Holliday ’84 came to Webb from Foothill Country Day School. He now serves on the boards of both schools, as well as other local civic organizations. “My mother set a great example of service for my sisters and me,” Holliday explains, “so it has been natural for me to be involved in organizations that have touched my life.” Holliday’s family has been a pillar of Southern California in a very literal way: The family business, Holliday Rock, has been a leading concrete/aggregate producer for 75 years, supplying construction and public works projects like Rancho Cucamonga’s Victoria Gardens mall and the Route 30/210 and 57/60 interchanges.
Holliday started working full time with his father in the late ’80s, after attending the University of Denver, and is now the company’s president, working alongside his sister Aimee. Holliday lives in Upland with his family. His son, Adam ’15, is currently a student at Colorado College. Holliday hopes to bring his experience with independent schools to the Webb board. “As a trustee,” he says, “I want to insure Webb has the resources and vision to continue its mission of graduating the next generation of morally courageous leaders.”
