Members of the Class of 1961 flew to Portland from throughout the United States to honor their classmate, Dodd Fischer '61. Also present was Head of Schools Taylor Stockdale and Board Chairman Sanjay Dholakia '87. This event has been hosted by Dodd and his wife Nancy Fischer P'89 for eight years and has become a cherished annual tradition in the region with alumni, parents, and friends. Mr. Stockdale gave a presentation on the state of the schools as well as a recap of the Colborn Distinguished Service Award given to Dodd Fischer '61 during Alumni Weekend last fall. As a special surprise, it was also announced that Webb has created the Dodd Fischer '61 Community Service Award. It will be given annually to that student who, over the course of his/her career at Webb, has consistently demonstrated a commitment to, and acted in the spirit of our mission to serve with a generous spirit." In total, nearly forty people were in attendance representing six decades of alumni.

An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
For Webb sports fans who can’t attend a game, or if you’d like to follow along with the live stats and scores from our athletic contests, most of our home games will be covered live with video and play-by-play at The NFHS Network.
There is no greater testament to The Webb Schools' values, culture of service and leadership than our extraordinary alumni.

We are pleased to announce the five distinguished recipients of Webb's 2018 Alumni Awards.
