Head's Reception for Leadership Donors

Members of the Head's Circle, Leadership Society, Pacesetter's Club and Thompson & Vivian Webb Society, along with members of key volunteer groups attended a reception at Taylor and Anne Stockdale's home. Sixty guests attended the event held on the Stockdale's patio on a warm May afternoon. Alumni from seven decades were in attendance - from former Chairman of the Board Paul Reitler '54 to Ethan Reznik '16 (Occidental College) – along with parents, current and former. Parent Class Agents, Alumni Council members, and Trustees from both Webb and the Alf Museum were also in attendance.
 
Taylor Stockdale spoke to guests about the wonderful highlights from the 2016-2017 school year, including:
  • Alumni and parents have generously given nearly $4 million to date
  • Dies Mulieres & Men in the Arena was a memorable day of dialogue event where issues of gender identity and gender roles were discussed
  • College Admission: 104 graduates received 423 offers of admission to 249 colleges and universities; 90% of the class will be attending a college ranked in the top 10% in the nation; 100% of Webb's senior class was admitted to a selective 4-year college
  • Athletic Success: 43 All-Leagues honors for Fall and Winter athletes, 17 of 21 teams qualified for CIF post season play, 10 league championships this year ; 14 League MVPs
 
He also looked ahead and discussed various projects that are currently underway or will be soon:
  • The Hooper Community Center renovation is scheduled to begin within the next year
  • Faculty Housing: The first set of duplexes will be finished in the next few months and Webb is looking forward to starting on the next set soon after
  • Alf Museum renovation: The expanded storage collection project has begun and will be completed by the end of the summer
  • The Centennial: Everything Webb does is in preparation for celebrating its Centennial in 2022 and setting up to achieve another 100 years
