Welcome Back from Mr. V

IF I COULD, I WOULD CALL EACH OF YOU PERSONALLY TO SAY HI, SEE HOW YOU ARE, GIVE YOU AN UPDATE ON WHAT A WONDERFUL PLACE BRENTWOOD SCHOOL IS TODAY, AND SHARE THE IMPORTANCE OF EACH OF YOU BEING AN ACTIVE AND ENGAGED ALUMNA OR ALUMNUS.

But given that our alumni now number 3497, I must resort to messages like this. I just hope that my warm thoughts and my pride in you and in our school still get conveyed.

I am thoroughly enjoying my current role at the school as it affords me the opportunity to reconnect with many of you and with some of your parents at special events, over lunch or dinner, and through letters, emails, and Facebook. In many instances, I am flooded with special memories as personal stories are recounted and perspectives on “then to now” are shared.

During the past year, I have come to appreciate more fully: 1) the long-term impact that a Brentwood School education has had on so many of you. Who you are today and what you have accomplished, both personally and professionally, are clear reflections of your experience here; and 2) that although Brentwood School may be a vastly different place than it was when you attended (a sentiment I hear quite often at class reunions), you are still very much a part of who we are as a school community because of the legacy you left as both an individual and as a member of a class. And your decision to remain connected to the school, in whatever manner you choose, is greatly valued and does indeed make a difference.

Please do keep in touch with me, with Emily Manning Ellis ’94, our Director of Alumni Relations, and with those teachers, coaches, and administrators who played a significant role in your life during your Brentwood School years. Hearing from you always means a great deal. And when you can, plan to visit the campus and attend an alumni event. Go Eagles!

How do you quickly and concisely describe Josh Wagner? A tenacious heart! That's how! Tenacious is defined as, "not relinquishing a position, principle, or course of action; determined." When I first met Josh, he appeared as this unassuming, docile little freshman. He was cast in a small part in Three Sisters. He sang a song with a fellow classmate. Bold, if you ever heard him sing...
