In February, at an intimate gathering in the atrium, Peter Bachmann thanked guests as he unveiled the permanent plaque in gratitude of donors to Phase I of the Enrich, Inspire, Ignite! campaign. This permanent donor wall will include the names of Phase II donors, as well.
Bachmann also took the opportunity to express gratitude to those who made the new atrium possible, including the Webster, Swaidan and Codiga families, The Ahmanson Foundation and the 2017 Flintridge Fever Benefit, which was hosted by the Parents Association and raised
$388,000 for the project.
Science Building Named in Honor of Webster Family
As students retreated from campus to enjoy their winter holidays, the final touch on the atrium remodel was completed: the name Helen and Will Webster Family Science Center was added to the side of the previously unnamed structure that houses four science labs.
Naming this complex acknowledges contributions from the Helen and Will Webster Family Foundation since 2013 for campus refurbishment and infrastructure improvements.
Says Trustee Rich Webster, “The Webster family is very proud to have supported the renovation of the science classrooms and the recent atrium project. As an engineer and inventor, my father was a pioneer in the medical device field, where millions of lives have been saved or dramatically improved. He firmly believed, as I do, that science is an important cornerstone of a student’s education, and that an investment in science is an investment in the advancement of humanity. Both he and my mother would be proud
to see the Helen and Will Webster Family Science Center name adorn the building.”
