On April 26, the Alumni Council hosted the annual Senior Dinner in honor of the Class of 2017. President Rahmi Mowjood '90, Council members, faculty and staff were on hand to enthusiastically welcome the future graduates into the Webb alumni community. Highlights included hundreds of photographs shared on each table showing freshmen through senior year, and a Taco Bar catered by Webb parent John Fuelling of The Corner Butcher.
Council President Mowjood encouraged the seniors to stay in touch after graduation, sharing college updates and informing Webb about life changing events. He introduced Laura Wensley, Lexus Beaman ’08, and Rose Gonzalez of the Alumni Office to the graduating class, who can be valuable resources in getting connected to the network of Webb alums across the country and the world. Available to fellow Webbies as resources, the alumni network can assist college students with internship and job opportunities. President Mowjood also promoted Webb's social media networks (LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook) as excellent ways to keep updated on school and alumni news.
Also present were Dwight Morgan '65, Whitney Wharton ’05, Doug Gregg ‘66, Coleen Martinez '86 and Janel Henriksen Hastings '87 of the Alumni Council, as well as faculty advisors Dr. Elizabeth Cantwell, Geoffrey Owers, Brendan Beikmann, Bana Dahi, Rick Duque, Melanie Bauman, Michael Szanyi, Melissa Blomberg, Howard Kalter, and Dr. Theresa Smith.
The evening concluded with the Alumni Council presenting the Class of 2017 with a special gift: a Class of 2017 mug filled with a Webb scarf (young ladies) or a Webb tie (young men).
While the tickets to see the upcoming production of Les Misérables sold out in a matter of minutes, The Webb Schools is pleased to announce a livestream of the Friday May 18th performance will be available on the school's website and Facebook page. The performance will begin at 7:00pm PDT.
Webb swimmers finished their 2018 season in championship style last week. The rundown: two days, two proud coaches (Ken Rosenfeld & Tom Jurczak), seven broken/re-broken school records, and one Vivian Webb CIF champion (the first individual swimming CIF champion in VWS history)!
When some colleges are reporting less than a 5% admit rate (Harvard & Stanford) and many others remain in the single digits, it’s good to know that no matter how tough things get Webb students are well prepared for the challenge. Once again, our students beat the odds. The members of this year’s graduating class are to be congratulated for admission into some of the most sought-after colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. We saw 100% of the Class of 2018 admitted to a selective four-year college or university—90% will be attending a college ranked in the top 10% in the nation.
