The well-being of Webb family members continues to be at the forefront of our efforts.
It has been Webb’s tradition that each spring Freshmen take part in Webb’s Phon-a-thon—reaching out to alumni, parents & grandparents of alumni, and friends who have generously supported the school. These phone calls are made in support of Webb’s Annual Fund, which provides the financial resources to support so many important programs and initiatives, including student support (scholarships, travel, research, training, thesis work, etc.), student activities (sports, clubs, art, etc.), technology acquisition, library acquisitions, faculty support, and much more. Phon-a-thon calls take place following solicitation mailings prepared by Webb’s Development Office and sent on behalf of the Alumni Fund Chairman (Jake Neuman ’93), Parent of Alumni Fund Chairman (Hal Granger, honorary alumnus, P’14), and President Michel ’73.
This spring we have once again sent letters requesting financial support for the school through the Annual Fund. While Webb needs the support of our benefactors more than ever, we understand that some have been negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. For this reason, instead of asking Webb Freshmen to assist in Webb fundraising, we are asking student volunteers of all class years to join us in Webb Cares.
As part of Webb Cares, Webbies will call members of the Webb family to make sure everyone is safe and sound. They will call the eldest members of our community first and hope to reach as many of Webbies as possible. They will share their recent experiences, including Winter Work and their transition to distance learning.
I hope you welcome this opportunity to connect with Webb students. Despite the geographic distance separating us, they are eager to help make the Webb family closer than ever.
Because Webb Cares.
