The celebration for the 25th Annual Peccary Society Dinner was a memorable one, breaking the all-time fundraising record with $146,750 in sponsorships raised, a tribute to founding board member Hugh Rose, and tours of our recently-renovated collections room. The crowd was inspired by the Alf Award for Excellence in Paleontological Research and Education winner, Dr. Bolortsetseg Minjin, and her work repatriating fossils to Mongolia and teaching the next generation of Mongolian paleontologists. Laudate Deum!
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.
