Six Decades of Alumni Honor Dodd Fischer '61

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.

  • The Week @ Webb - Together in January

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a periodic photojournal of events on and off Webb's campus. Did it feel like January lasted 31,000 days instead of just 31? I know that for me, it's important to spend as much time as I can with other people when life gets really busy. We all do better when we surround ourselves with friends and family and that's what I tried to capture in this latest gallery.
