Message from the Head of School As a new school year unfolds there are many things that are going on around campus. The start of this school year has brought with it many new and Head of School Evan D. Peterson with Jenna exciting things. The opening of the Schaffer ’22. Lou and Nick Martin Campus Center completed our planned construction through the Learning. Leading. Legacy. A Campaign for FWCDS. As I look back over the past few years, I think our Board of Trustees had the vision and a great plan to move the School forward and the three building additions along with the face lift the administration building received has done much to make our campus even better. The fall season ended with a wonderful celebration as our Falcon football team went undefeated and won the SPC championship with a final win over rival Trinity Valley School. The win was certainly impressive, but the size of the crowd was even more impressive. Our school spirit is alive and well. My thanks to the students, parents, alums, grandparents and friends who supported all of our Falcon teams this fall. We are also proud of the fact that 27 members of this year’s senior class were nationally recognized for their outstanding work on the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Program). That’s one third of the senior class! Time and space does not allow me to list the many great things that take place every day. However, I can tell you our students are fun to be with, our teachers work hard and enjoy what they do and in total, there are great things going on at Country Day. This would not be possible without the support from our friends listed in this magazine. To them and to everyone I thank you so very much. I hope you know how much everyone appreciates what you have given our students and our School.

Passing the Falcon Spirit Year after year, Fort Worth Country Day admissions staff develops unique ways to showcase what the FWCD community has to offer its prospective families. In the fall of 2009 the Catch the Spirit, Pass It On red baton campaign began. The FWCD community was asked to take batons containing admissions dates and contact information and pass them to future Falcon Families. Over 110 FWCD families were credited as being responsible for encouraging 85 applications. Current FWCD families who were named by new families that enrolled this fall were entered in drawings conducted at each of the three divisions’ Parents Night to receive a Catch the Spirit $500 tuition credit. The winning families were Dr. and Mrs. Stephen D. Maberry ’84 who encouraged Mr. and Mrs. Dax Symonds to enroll their son and daughter, Turner ’18 and Taylor ’19; Mr. and Mrs. Clint Lax who encouraged Mr. and Mrs. Michael N. Johnston to enroll their daughter, Isabelle ’23; and Mr. and Mrs. Robert L. Madrid who encouraged Mr. and Mrs. Joseph D. Fowler to enroll their daughter, Hannah ’14. In addition to families referring applicants, our feeder programs are also key players in encouraging new families to consider FWCD. “Attracting our preschool teachers and directors to our campus to meet our fabulous faculty called for a new plan of action,” Barbara Jiongo, director of Admissions, said. On September 1, FWCD held its first annual Make It and Take It Preschool Teachers Open House. This was an opportunity for preschool teachers and directors to create great lesson plans and prototypes based on Frank Asche’s book, Popcorn. “It is extremely important for us to work closely with preschools because these are our greatest source for potential young families,” Jiongo said. fall/WINTER 2010
The Make It and Take It Open House, planned by Kindergarten teachers Meg Rubin and Lucy Biggs, left preschool teachers with only one question at the end of the workshop: “When can we come back and do this next year?” The Admissions team is working hard coming up with new plans for reaching Future Falcon Families. How many Future Falcon Families do you know? Batons and information are available in the Schwartz Administration Building. Pick up one and take your Falcon Spirit and “Pass It On.”

School Student Council Visits Wings of Hope Equitherapy Center
Twenty members of the Lower School Student Council took a field trip to Wings of Hope Equitherapy center in Johnson County. The non-profit provides therapeutic horseback riding and horsemanship instruction to children and adults with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, autism, multiple sclerosis and closed head injury. Riders range in age from two to 80.
Lower School Student Council students chose to support the non-profit organization, Wings of Hope. Front row: (l to r) India Turner ’20, Natalie Claire Collins ’20, Henry Brookman ’22, Hope Rozanski ’20, Annika Futch ’22 Back row: (l to r) Charlie Bynum ’22, Sean Nolan ’19, Merrick Decker ’19 and Jessica Schaffer ’19
The students voted to make this non-profit organization the recipient of this year’s Annual Change Drive and were visiting the center to prepare for their presentation at the Lower School Assembly. Each student was allowed to ride a horse, so they could experience first-hand what it would be like to participate in equitherapy.
Third Graders Get Into Character It has become a tradition for third grade students to dress up as the character of their choice and participate in the Book Character Assembly. Every year students choose their character, write their lines and help design their set.
This year, students chose characters from books such as Eloise, Ivy and Bean, Matilda and Fancy Nancy Poet Extraordinaire. They presented their monologue and sang songs to family, faculty and peers.
“This assembly is usually their first opportunity to do a solo performance in front of an audience,” third grade teacher Kay Cody said. “This project gives the students an opportunity to explore the character and book of choice.”

Visiting Authors at FWCD Since 1978, students have had the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of literature through the Visiting Authors Program. This experience allows students to speak with authors and illustrators and listen to - instead of just read - their fascinating stories. “A significant number of children never have the opportunity to visit with an author or an illustrator,” Priscilla Harrier, Lower School librarian said. “This program allows students to interact in the author and illustrator’s element and often leaves a lasting impression.”
Dan Yaccarino, author and illustrator, showed his process of creating characters for his animated televison series Willa’s Wild Life.
This year, students were able to visit with Gum Chewing Rattler, Ghost Fever and El Cucuy author, Joe Hayes; Life as We Know It, The Dead and the Gone and This World We Live In author, Susan Beth Pfeffer; and Bluebonnet Award nominated Fantastic Undersea Adventure of Jacques Costeau author and illustrator, Dan Yaccarino.
Visiting Author Joe Hayes captivated the students with folklore of the American Southwest.
Carnival Every year Lower School students look forward to Carnival, an evening of activities for kindergarten through fourth grade at Rosacker Stadium. Themed Splish Splash Beach Bash, Carnival provided an environment for students to engage in fun activities including face painting, bounce houses and a dunking booth with administrative, teacher and student volunteers. Students enjoyed this year’s newest event, Sweet Sammies Cookie Walk which replaced the Krispy Kreme Walk. To help with setup, manning booths and cleanup, Middle School students were offered the opportunity to participate as volunteers. Parents and students were also encouraged to invite friends and neighbors to experience Carnival as a part of the Catch the Spirit, Pass It On campaign.
This 2010 FWCD Carnival king and queen were Drew Baker ’19 and Rebecca Galloway ’19.

Seventh Graders Host Veterans Day Celebration Photos by Lisa Koger
Seventh grade students, faculty and parents celebrated those who have served and protected our country through a Veterans Day assembly. The program commenced with a reading by Ariana Gilley ’16 and the raising of the American flag by “three generation” families, Erin ’16, Kevin and Walter Ford; Ariana and Sherrilan Gilley and Jimmy Williams; Reagan ’16, Michael and Roy Parker; and Jacob ’16 and Jackie Rains and John Ward. The National Anthem was sung by Kristin Robinson ’16. Veterans walked through an American flag arbor and gathered at the FWCD Veteran Garden for the invocation by Natalie Clifton’s ’16 grandfather, William Gibson. Guests were then led to the theatre where assembly emcee Katie Anderson ’16, Head of School Evan D. Peterson, Middle School Division Head John Stephens and Ketrick Karsten ’16 and his grandfather, Todd Pearson, welcomed attendees and recognized veterans. Musical performances and readings were done by middle school students and the keynote speaker, Lt. Col. Ron Henry, Cailey Bills ’16 uncle, spoke about character and integrity. To close the assembly, Lt. Col. Lorenzo Evans, father of Brandon ’16 and Brian ’17 and FWCD Board of Trustee member Rosalind Evans’s husband, delighted attendees with a phone call from Iraq.

People’s Republic of China Think back. When was the last time you had the opportunity to visit one of the “new” Seven Wonders of the World? For a lucky 25 seventh, eighth and ninth graders, the opportunity came on a summer trip to the People’s Republic of China. Chuck Maddux, sixth grade history teacher, Micheal Parker, fifth grade humanities teacher, Jackie Rains, seventh grade English teacher and Christine Spikes, middle school science consultant for Northwest ISD, led, Fallon Appleton ’13, Cooper Baird ’15, Ally Barber ’14, Mary Barber ’15, John Callaway ’14, Ellie Conway ’15, Chuck Corder ’15, Grace Cowan ’13, Lilly Cowan ’13, Devon Davis ’15, Thomas Haas ’15, Joel Horton ’15, Emily Hyde ’15, Ross Kasal ’15, Libby Kerrigan ’15, William Kleinheinz ’15, Brian McConnell ’15, Shane Markwardt ’14, Stephen Nolan ’15, Graham Pergande ’15, Morgan Pergande ’13, Sydney Phillips ’15, Ryan Pohler ’15, on a 12-day excursion through the People’s Republic of China. From Beijing to Shanghai, students had the opportunity to visit the Great Wall, Temple of Heaven and enjoy an excursion to the World Heritage Site of the life-size Terra Cotta Warriors. “This was a great opportunity for the students and teachers to learn and see the fall/WINTER 2010

extremes between the country that they live in and countries abroad,” Maddux said. Students were able to showcase their negotiating skills in the market area and in the evenings, interact in the square with thousands of people while doing Tai Chi exercises. They shared in the culture of a native family by learning how to
make Chinese dumplings and enjoyed a dumpling dinner. FWCD students also visited a local school and participated in joint activities with the students. “Students were able to share world experiences,” Maddux said. “I’ve never been more proud of them.” FALCONER
New Kiln for Ceramics Classes “Students earned participation points for working on the kiln project,” Mahle said. “While several of the students who helped build the kiln have graduated, this year’s students have the excitement of using it.”
“The old kiln was also student built, but it couldn’t be transferred to the new visual arts building,” Jerry Mahle, ceramics teacher, said. “To purchase a new constructed kiln would cost $30,000 so the only logical thing to do was build one.”
The kiln was fired up for the first time in September and has been fired up twice since then. Compared to the old kiln, the new one is more efficient. It requires less gas to fire it up and also fires up considerably faster. However, the real luxury of the new kiln is that it has doors.
Last school year, students used a kit to assemble the frame of the kiln and began laying the bricks. The process was a bit slow due to rain, but by the end of the year, with help of FWCD alumni, Clayton Harlin ’06, the arch was completed.
“We had to build the doors on the old kiln with bricks,” Mahle said. “Now we have attached doors.” The ceramics classes are looking forward to firing up the kiln at least once a month. So be on the look out for their pottery masterpieces.
Learning the art of creating pottery can be rewarding and relaxing. Learning to build the schools new kiln can be more tedious and tiring. However, ceramics students took on the grueling task to create an instrument that future classes would use.

Attack on the Shark Finners Save Our Sharks! November 1-4 was reserved as Shark Week in the Upper School. Maura Vestal ’13 and the Marine Team took on the task of educating and raising awareness of the dangers of shark finning not only among the FWCD community, but also the Fort Worth community. “Sharks are not the monsters that have been portrayed to us since the movie, Jaws,” Vestal said in her presentation to students. “They are an important part of preserving the oceans.” Students were able to receive daily information about shark finning, had opportunities to review video presentations during their free periods and endorsed a petition to the United States Senate for the Shark Conservation Act (HR81.) Paula Carlson, director of Husbandry for the Dallas World Aquarium, also spoke with students during their announcement period.

More than 1.5 million juniors in about 22,000 high schools entered the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2009 PSAT/NMSQT, which served as an initial screen of program entrants for the National Merit, National Achievement and National Hispanic Recognition programs. Recognized for their outstanding PSAT/NMSQT scores, 27 FWCD students have been named National Merit Semifinalists, National Merit Commended Students, National Hispanic Scholars, or National Hispanic Honorable Mentions. “FWCD prepares its students for the PSAT/NMSQT,” Kristin Vaughn, director of college counseling said. “Through our normal course of study, our students are learning the skills and concepts found on the exam. Prior to the test, students are familiarized with format and scoring and are encouraged to take the practice exam provided to them in the Official Student Guide to the PSAT/NMSQT. In addition to self-study, many students chose to take a prep course, and about one-half of this year’s junior class attended FWCD’s PSAT Skills Development Course.” Although National Merit Commended Students and National Hispanic Honorable Mentions do not move forward in their respective scholarship competitions, National Merit Semifinalists may be considered for National Merit, corporate or university-sponsored financial rewards if named National Merit Finalists. National Hispanic Scholars are also eligible for additional scholarships awarded primarily through university-sponsored awards.

Reaching Out to the World Photos by Lisa Koger
Upper school students were asked to take their kindness across the world to northern Uganda and help rebuild the war-torn country through the non-profit Invisible Children. Organization representatives and Ugandan student Francis Ojok spoke to students about Ugandan children being separated from their families and forced to serve as child soldiers in the Joseph Kony rebel war. As a response to the need, FWCD students have created the Invisible Children Club. Club officers are Jirah Mickle ’11, president, Meredith Shroyer ’11, vice president and Nayelly Dominguez ’11, secretary.
Students visited with Francis Ojok during lunch about the hardships in Northern Uganda.
“Students are coming together to raise money that will go to the Invisible Children’s Schools for School fund, Julia Ando, associate director of college counseling and Invisible Children Club advisor said. “Our partner school, Pabbo Secondary School.” Upper and middle school students and parents also learned about the inequalities in Afghanistan when University of Colorado at Boulder student, Yalda, came to visit. Invited by Terry and Allison Montesi, Yalda, a native of Afghanistan and international affairs major, shared her story of pursuing an education as a young woman in Afghanistan, which is forbidden under Taliban rule. Upper School Head Rob Hereford felt that this would be a good experience for the students.
Alex Espinoza ’11, Francis Ojok from the Invisible Children, Bryan Kelly ’11 and Christa Ratcliff ’11 talk about the “Schools for Schools” program.
“Visiting with Yalda tied directly in the curriculum because the students read Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace…One School at a Time, a story about author, Greg Mortenson’s mission to successfully establish schools in some of the most remote regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan,” Hereford said. Parents that attended the lecture have begun donating to Yalda’s scholarship fund. Yalda plans to return to Afghanistan after graduation to pursue a political career.

Styling Their Soles for Breakthrough
Students from Fort Worth Country Day, All Saints’ Episcopal School, Trinity Valley School and Breakthrough display their TOMS flags and shoes.
For a few hours on Saturday, October 16, FWCD’s round gym floor became a giant canvas with smiling faces, creative concentration, paint pens, cookies, great music and awesome shoe ideas. Breakthrough Fort Worth hosted a Style Your Sole event featuring TOMS Shoes. Upper School students and families from Fort Worth Country Day, All Saints’ Episcopal School and Trinity Valley School united in an opportunity to benefit and get to know Breakthrough students while enjoying a relaxing, creative morning together decorating their TOMS. Sunflowers, color blocks, logo stencils, and fleur-de-lis cut-outs in school fabrics – the ideas were endless. From simple line designs to glued-on rhinestones, the artistic focus made it a fun morning and the shoes created were fantastic. Event chair and worker bee, Shannon Ricca, was on hand to keep the creative rhythm flowing and help the girls bling their thing at the embellishments table. Breakthrough’s director, Joe Breedlove ’78, kept the tunes blaring and the energy high. Everyone had a great time, and shoe artist, Courtney Reimer ’11, summed the day’s mood when she remarked, “If I were not graduating in the spring, I would definitely do this again next year. Of course, if it’s during fall break, then maybe…” fall/WINTER 2010

FWCD Lecture and Speaker Series
Teaching Students to be Effective Leaders Developing critical thinking skills for life is important. Starting the developmental process in an early stage of life is crucial. Bill Arnold ’86, FWCD Upper School history teacher, recognized the importance of equipping FWCD students with skills to become effective leaders. Arnold proposed the best way to do this was by placing individuals with leadership qualities in front of the students. Thus, the Lecture and Speaker Series was born. A major component of the Leadership and Outdoor Education program, the Lecture and Speaker Series assists students in developing the skills and acquiring the knowledge to become effective leaders. “Fort Worth Country Day encourages students to put to use their leadership skills whenever possible,” Arnold said. “Whether on the football field, in the classroom, or as the student body president, we want the students to learn the proper components of leadership and how to use those skills in preparation for real world experiences.” To kick off the 2010-2011 school year, Rep. Kay Granger was invited to speak with the Upper School students. She engaged in a panel discussion with Taylor
Arnold ’11, Peter Bowden ’12, Sara Shah ’13 and Robbie Stackhouse ’14 about pressing issues facing the United States including the current state of the economy, healthcare, domestic security and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Students in the audience were also able to have a question and answer session with Granger at the end of the panel discussion. In addition to Granger speaking with students, the inaugural lecture of the Captain David R. “Chip” Herr, Jr. ’80 Memorial Lectures took place in September. The Herr Lecture series memorializes one of Fort Worth Country Day’s true heroes who fell in the service of the United States on February 3, 1991, in Saudi Arabia. Known to FWCD as the gentle giant, Herr is the only FWCD graduate to die in battle. Attended by over 100 guests and held in the FWCD Scott Theatre, guests were led by Arnold in a panel discussion with invited lecturers, Hon. Pete Geren and Hon. Gordon R. England. Geren and England spoke about the men and women who make sacrifices each day as public servants and who continue to shoulder the burdens of command in the dangerous and
complicated 21st century. The discussion also concentrated on national issues since 9/11 and the forecast for our global future. Prior to the lectures, the FWCD Veterans Garden was dedicated in honor of Herr. With Chip’s mother, Mrs. Connie Herr, and family looking on, Head of School Evan D. Peterson opened the ceremony saying, “We are here today to dedicate a small piece of Country Day to Chip and all of those who have stepped forward to answer the call of their country.” The ceremony also included a welcome from City Council member Zim Zimmerman, poems read by Elizabeth “Tad” Sanders and John O’Rear and ended with Geren and England placing a wreath in Chip’s honor at the front of the garden. Honoring Herr was important to the FWCD community because it keeps the memory of Chip alive for his family, friends, classmates and current and future FWCD students. His example of leadership will never be forgotten and will live on and inspire others through the lecture series.

Breakthrough Fort Worth
Fort Worth Country Day
Coming Together Finding a Home
Fort Worth Country Day boasts many wonderful Breakthrough success stories. For 17 years, the program’s unique students-teaching-students model has united younger and older youth in a learning program that has empowered hundreds of underserved public middle school students to advance to college and inspired hundreds of high school and college students to pursue careers in education. Still, few of these triumphs are as endearing as this former student coming together with this student teacher and discovering what they ultimately learned together this summer. Although they are living their life where opportunities take them, Fort Worth and its Country Day campus are still home to alumnus, Edgar Araiza ’03, and his new bride, former Spanish teacher Gloria Romero. Theirs is not a whirlwind romance, but a story grounded in commitment and the Breakthrough program at Fort Worth Country Day. Edgar tutors a Breakthrough student after school in November 2002.
Edgar entered FWCD as an excited ninth grader, fresh from the Breakthrough program and E. M. Daggett Middle School. He loved the academic challenge FWCD provided and the educational
opportunities it offered to students, and with his classes and activities in Breakthrough, he was prepared to successfully fulfill the school’s rigorous program. Inspired by the choices Breakthrough helped him initiate in his life, Edgar decided to give back to the program and began teaching in the summer. One of his students, Alexandra Romero ’08, showed high academic promise and he decided to enlist the help of her older sister, Gloria, in encouraging Alexandra to apply for FWCD’s Upper School. So begins their story. Friends from the start, Edgar shared his many Breakthrough stories with Gloria. Before long, he was working with program director, Joe Breedlove, to persuade her to become a summer teacher as well. Gloria admits, “It was a very difficult choice for me.” She was double-majoring in Communications and Spanish at Southern Methodist University, and that summer, she had an offer for a prestigious communications internship with LULAC, the League of United Latin American Citizens. With strong encouragement, she chose teaching Breakthrough students instead. Gloria loved helping the children, but after three weeks in the program, she still felt inexperienced and out-of-place in her role. Fortunately for the hundreds of students Gloria has taught
since then, Breakthrough Mentor Teacher for that summer and professional educator, Sherri Coffey, gave the young new instructor her first evaluation and some career-altering guidance. She applauded Gloria’s strong rapport with the students, pointed out her good skills in lesson planning and counseled her to consider teaching as her career. It remains Gloria’s fondest Breakthrough memory…after meeting Edgar, that is. The two friends and student teachers began dating during the summer of 2004 and recently married on June 18. Among their most treasured gifts of the wedding day were family members who traveled from Mexico to celebrate their union. During their courtship, they each proudly became the first member of their family to graduate college, she from SMU and he from Austin College. She entered her teaching career in the Fort Worth Independent School District and soon after, Breedlove encouraged her to apply for the position of seventh grade Spanish instructor at FWCD. Edgar proceeded to medical school at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston.
Breakthrough Boutique Dresses. Ties. Pants. Shoes. Anyone up for shopping? The eighth graders of Breakthrough are! Each summer, Breakthrough eighth graders attend the Fancy Meal Celebration luncheon as part of the program’s leadership series to develop skills in deportment and social interaction. In 2008, Laura Lindsay Tatum ’10 learned that many Breakthrough students were hesitant to participate without appropriate attire. She and fellow FWCD alumna, Ginger Epstein ’10, Students “shop” for clothes in pooled their volunteer resources the boutique. and created a fun “second glance” store for the students complete with clothing, shoes, accessories and a check-out counter. In three short years, the Boutique has already become an integral component of the Breakthrough students’ Fancy Meal experience. Prior to the event, the students have a mock luncheon where they practice table etiquette and appropriate conversation. Shopping in the store follows the practice luncheon and significantly expands the student’s preparation activities for the event.

Five short months since their wedding, Mr. and Mrs. Araiza are in Houston living their dreams together. Edgar is finishing medical school and although he has not decided what career to pursue, he is certain he wants to establish his practice here in Fort Worth near their families and friends. Gloria is teaching seventh grade Spanish at The Kinkaid School and is thankful for the incredible support of Evan D. Peterson, John Stephens and Joe Breedlove in helping her secure that position. As the couple prepared to move their life to Houston, Edgar’s mom pointed out that he always wanted to be a doctor and showed Gloria the card her 10-year-old son wrote to his parents that proves it. Breakthrough opened the door to that dream, helping Edgar realize college was possible for him and enabling him to become an FWCD alumnus. Along the way, the program introduced him to his wife and moved her to change her dream to teaching. It all started here in the Country Day-Breakthrough community, and Gloria’s own words sum it up best, “FWCD is definitely home!”
Whitney Wood ’13 and Madison McDade ’13
Making the Boutique a new FWCD Upper School tradition, Madison McDade ’13 and Nikki Hubbard ’11 took the reins this summer gathering gently used donations and crafting the small “store” in the Schwartz Room. Excited Breakthrough participants filled the boutique, putting together outfits with accessories and leaving with an uplifted sense of having something special to wear for their big event.
The New Year is just ahead and McDade and Hubbard will begin seeking donations for the 2011 Breakthrough Boutique. As you empty closets and drawers in your spring cleaning, keep Breakthrough students in mind for items suitable to wear to a Fancy Meal.

FWCD’s Homecoming Court Top row: (l-r) Seniors Paul Mackey, Taylor Arnold, Bryan Kelly, Stephen Tetirick, Clifton Harlin Bottom row: (l-r) Seniors Courtney Reimer, Emily Anne Self, Jirah Mickle, Nancy Bonds, Kyle Fraser
Homecoming for FWCD alumni is just that, an opportunity to visit the place they call home. For many it’s an opportunity to see the many changes to their alma mater and cheer for the home team at the Friday night football game. This year was no different as Falcons, old and new, celebrated a 35-10 win over the Episcopal School of Dallas. Students prepared for the defeat at a Friday afternoon pep rally where the cheerleaders and dance team fired up the crowd with Falcon Pride. Students cheered as the Homecoming Court was announced. Later that night, Taylor Arnold ’11 and Emily Anne Self ’11 were announced as Homecoming king and queen. Eight alumni were inducted into the FWCD Wall of Fame during halftime of the football game: Justin Alexander ’05, Chloe Bade ’05, Lauren Brants ’05, James Colby ’05, Avery Kelly ’05, Patrick Powers ’05, Mary Caroline Stancukas ’03 and Lauren Wu ’04. (See story on page 42) However, the fun didn’t stop there. Saturday, the School hosted a reunion class lunch at Joe T. Garcia’s.
Close to 80 alumni attended the lunch and had a great time catching up with their former classmates and looking through old yearbooks. Several former faculty attended, including Bob Balch, Jean Webb H’01, Claire-Lise Knecht ’06, Sharon Foster H’05, Tad Sanders and June Van Buskirk ’09. (See photos page 43) To wrap up the weekend’s activities, students danced the night away at the semi-formal Homecoming dance, and several of the reunion classes hosted parties Friday and Saturday night. The class of 2005 met at The Gingerman; 2000 met at Capital Bar after the Homecoming game and had a dinner in a private room at The White Elephant Saloon Saturday night; 1990 class members went to the home of Dr. Natalia Castro Hanson’s ’90 parents Friday after the game, and to the home of Shannon ’90 and Mark Hart ’90 Saturday night; 1985 had a party at The Pointe at Mira Vista where Jon Eudaly’s ’85 band provided entertainment; 1980 had a dinner at the home of Brad Corbett ’80; 1975 celebrated on the patio of Piola; and 1970 had dinner at Winslow’s Wine Café. A gigantic thank you is owed to the reunion year chairs for their hard work and dedication of spreading the word about our 2010 Homecoming events. fwcd.org

For nearly half of a century, Fort Worth Country Day has offered and provided an educational experience that has carried students from Fort Worth to the far ends of the earth. From doctors and lawyers to mothers and fathers, FWCD alumni have used what was gained from their time at FWCD to take themselves and their families to another level. Some graduates,

however, find that the greatest reward has been

returning to the place where it all began to help guide not only new students, but for some, the next generation of their family.
Giving back what was given t o me… Alumni return to FWCD as faculty and trustees Former students often find themselves reminiscing about their days in school. They reflect on their friends, dances, plays, student life and that one extremely difficult assignment that had them up for hours. For many educators, the desire to teach was placed on their hearts at an early age. Throughout school, the desire grew and then they found themselves in a classroom providing leadership to a hungry group of students eager to learn their daily lessons. For more than 20 FWCD faculty members, accomplishing their career goals was more than just applying for and receiving a job from any school; they desired to come back home to Fort Worth Country Day. Many schools can boast that they have alumni teachers and coaches, but to have over 20 alumni return to teach at the school that they feel gave them the foundation to proceed through life and succeed is phenomenal. Reasons for returning vary, but like Valerie Bloch Montgomery ’01, Middle School Spanish teacher and JV Field Hockey coach, one reason remains true for all who come back: a deep passion for the school. “As I realized I wanted to teach, I knew I would love to return to Country Day,” Montgomery said. “FWCD had been a big part of my life for so many years, I knew I wanted to return and give back to the school that taught me so much.” While the look of the campus has changed over the years, the vision and core values have stayed the same. That was an important factor in the decision to return for alumna, Caroline Corpening Lamsens ’99, kindergarten teacher. “I was inspired to return to give back to the community that helped raise and shape the person I am today,” Lamsens said.
“I think the most important value instilled in me was independence of thought. That’s the skill that applies to learning, athletics, art and to life in general. FWCD encouraged that skill 40 years ago and I see my children getting the same encouragement today.” David Ekstrom ’75 Pierce ’08, James ’10 and Mary Claire ’14 Alumnus/Board of Trustees Member/Parent
“I believe in the mission and vision of the school and I like to think I live the core values in my day to day life.” Teaching isn’t the only way that alumni can return home. FWCD is privileged to have several alumni serve on the Board of Trustees. As a board member, alumnus David Ekstrom ’75 hopes to make a positive contribution to FWCD as others have done in the past. “Over the years, many people have given their time and effort to make FWCD what it is today,” Ekstrom said. “I hope that I can make a positive contribution towards improving FWCD for the future, and preserving our tradition of excellence.’
“I appreciated being in a competitive environment because it motivated me to do my best. Whether it was in the classroom or on the field, I wanted to be at the top of my game. I want my girls to be proud of their accomplishments as well.” Paige Farris Chisholm ’87 Farris ’19 and Kaylee ’22 Alumna/Parent/Field Hockey Program Director/Tennis and P.E./Alumni Council

Alumni return to FWCD as parents
Many alumni look back on their time at FWCD and decide that the values that were instilled in them and the opportunities that were afforded to them are the same values and opportunities they hope to have for their children. As a result, FWCD has many alumni who have chosen their alma mater as the educational institution for their children. Students, Abigail ’20 and Charlie’23 Anton, are third generation Falcons. Their mother and father, Lauren Meekins ’93 and David ’92 and grandmother, Brett Meekins ’67 feel a great sense of pride to see them at FWCD.
20 years ago and played a role in shaping the person I am today. Now he is helping shape the person my son, Walker ’23, will become.” It is without question that Falcon values and pride carry on from generation to generation. The memories and experiences that are gained are invaluable and often carry you to the next phase of your life and beyond. With a bit of luck, those memories will carry you back home.
“I feel that FWCD played such an important role in my life socially and academically and I could not be happier placing my trust in the hands of FWCD for my children’s education,” Lauren Anton said. When asked how the student life has changed since their time at FWCD, they acknowledged that the students of all ages are extremely close-knit and the parents and the grandparents have taken on a stronger importance than when they were students. “The family program has instilled the importance of respect and friendship among the entire student body,” Anton said. “The new lunchroom along with Grandparents Day has helped to include family members in the daily lives of the FWCD children.” With children in kindergarten and third grade, the Antons recognize the major changes in the campus since they were students and understand the benefits of those changes. “When my husband and I attended FWCD, there was only one kindergarten class, held for only a half of day taught by Mrs. Miller,” Anton said. “I think the stand-alone Kindergarten building is one of my favorite improvements. Kindergarten is an important year for the students and being new to the school, I believe that this building eases the transition for the students from pre-school and allows them to become more independent.” Other alumni have also chosen to have their children carry the Falcon torch. Tasa Lefler Anderson ’88 remembers when head of school, Evan Peterson, was the head of Upper School while she was a student at FWCD. “Having experienced Mr. Peterson’s leadership from the perspective of a child and now as an adult and parent, I know what a tremendous asset he is to our school,” Anderson said. Mr. Peterson personally handed me my FWCD diploma over fall/WINTER 2010
“Although FWCD has grown in almost every aspect, it has retained its warmth and level of excellence in education. Its well-rounded curriculum is one of the most significant differentiating characteristics that has always set it apart from the rest.” Mr. and Mrs. David Anton ’92 (Lauren Meekins ’93) Brett Meekins ’67 Charlie ’23, Abigail ’20 Alumni/Parents

Exploring unknown territories always proves to be exciting. Being within arms-length of the native wildlife and traveling trails that were established more than three-quarters of a century ago gives scouts an adrenaline rush that many only dream of experiencing. Led by Upper School math teacher Dan Foust and parent Shannon Ricca, five youth including FWCD alumni Erin Loth ’10 and Allison Yamagata ’10, student, Antonio Mireles ’13 and two Trinity Valley students, the group, also known as Crew 709-L3, was able to experience 12 days and nights of nature in July from the Palo Duro Canyon to northern New Mexico.

“Leaving a few days early allowed the children to become acquainted with each other as well as become accustomed to the change in altitude,” Foust said. After three days at Taos, the group made their way to the main attraction of their trip, Philmont Scout Ranch. Made up of 137,000 acres of rugged mountain wilderness in the Sangre de Criso range of the Rocky Mountains, Philmont Scout Ranch is every Boy and Girl Scout’s dream. Visitors are given the opportunity to experience daily adventures in the highpacking country that include a mixture of the Old West and modern challenges. The group began their trip at base camp and then took to the trail with Ranger
Tasha Lucas, making stops at activity camps daily. Each camp site offered different programs for groups to participate in including rock climbing, mountain bike riding, rifle shooting and homesteading. “Philmont offers youth the opportunity to challenge themselves,” Foust said. “The adults’ positions are to be advisors. Instead the youth take on the leadership role. It was left up to them to find the way through the trail and decide what the group’s next move would be. One of the trip’s many lessons was leadership and our youth took it seriously.” An average day during the Philmont trip was not a typical day the youth and adults were used to. On average the group woke up at 5:30 a.m. They were on the trail by 6:30 a.m. and hiked on average for approximately eight miles. They enjoyed breakfast and lunch on the trail and dinner at the camp site. Because each day brought an early rising, campers were in bed by 9:30 p.m. Aside from the awesome adventures Crew 709-L3 experienced, they also had the

Crew 709-L3’s excursion began with a night in Palo Duro Canyon State Park. From there they viewed Caplin Volcano National Monument and drove to Taos Ski Valley. While at Taos, the group stopped to see the Bandelier National Monument and the Los Alamos Historical Museum and did not hesitate to have fun rafting through White Rock Canyon on the Rio Grande.

opportunity to build their Good Turn skills. A good turn, a Boy Scout must, is a volunteered act of good deed. Without question the group had no problem showing individual and group good turns. Their first good deed was to a group from Cincinnati. Down an adult, the Cincinnati group could not take the trail up Baldly Mountain. To help them out, Crew 709L3 decided to combine the groups and take the hike together. Not knowing the other group didn’t hinder Crew 709-L3 from singing, joking and talking with them along the way. It was as if they had been one large group the entire time.
On day eight of the hike, the group was heading to Harlan and encountered a traveling group that was low on water and had an adult suffering from heat exhaustion. Immediately, the kids stopped to offer assistance, water and Gatorade. They helped map their location and when they arrived in Harlan, they reported it to staff to confirm that a rescue crew was sent to help.

“The Cincinnati advisor was concerned that he was going to have to cancel the remaining days of the trip due to problems that were going on with his group,” Foust said. “But our kids were infectious. They had a positive attitude and it rubbed off on the other group which allowed them to continue their trip. When we saw them the next day, they were doing cheers as they the dropped their packs to check-in. I was so proud of our kids for being positive influences.”
Philmont Scout Ranch proved to be much more than 12 days of nature exploration. It afforded the kids the opportunity to showcase their clear understanding of leadership, ability to survive and help in unfavorable conditions and establish comradery in spite of unforseen problems. The beautiful scenery did not compare to the maturity and kindness of Crew 709-L3.
As a result of their “Good Samaritan” actions, the group was featured in Philnews, the Philmont Scout Ranch newsletter, in an article titled Good Turn Crew.

But Familiar Faces Stay the Same
Joe Breedlove ’78
By Taylor White ’11 Throughout the past two years alone, the Fort Worth Country Day campus has undergone extensive changes. The Fischer Dining Pavilion, Sid W. Richardson Visual Arts Center and Lou and Nick Martin Campus Center are perhaps the most obvious testaments to the campus’ goal to expand, renovate and keep up with the times. However, as the campus changes, many of the most beloved faces stay the same. Joe Breedlove ’78, Ed Chisholm, Joe Murph and Butch Traeder have contributed to the betterment of the FWCD athletic community for a combined 114 years. Breedlove, director of Breakthrough Fort Worth and the Boys’ Basketball Program, first fell in love with FWCD in 1976 when he began attending the Upper School as a sophomore. His athletic achievements are too numerous to recount in full, but a few highlights include two undefeated football seasons, two SPC Division I Boys’ Basketball championships and three TAPS championships, one SPC Championship in track and field, and running a record setting 9.7 second 100 yard dash. Understandably, Breedlove’s athletic prowess earned him a fearsome reputation and a full athletic scholarship to attend Texas Christian fall/WINTER 2010
University. His modesty and eagerness to help others succeed made coaching and education an obvious career choice for Breedlove. “I am more proud of all the students I have had the opportunity to coach and their accomplishments than anything I have ever done,” Breedlove said. Immediately upon graduation, Breedlove returned to contribute to the FWCD athletic community as a lower school P.E. coach. Over the course of the past 24 years, he has progressed in the athletic department from his station as a P.E. coach to hold the position of boys’ basketball program director. Despite his obvious success, Breedlove considers his accomplishments in the athletic department to be only secondary.
“If you can make a difference in a young person’s life, in their journey and plant a seed of hope, you have done a good job as a teacher.” Joe Breedlove ’78
“Only so many times in life do you have the chance to edify a person’s growth or spirit, and I think FWCD allows teachers to make that happen,” Breedlove said. “The profession has that built in, but you have to be in the right environment for that to be fostered. If you can make a difference in a young person’s life, in their journey and plant a seed of hope, you have done a good job as a teacher.” FALCONER
Joe Murph councils Stephon Breedlove ‘79 during a wrestling match at the Texas School for the Blind in January 1978.
When asked for an estimated win to loss coaching record, Breedlove was without an answer. He has chosen not to keep track of these numbers to be consistent with his style of coaching, which sets the focus on his players rather than himself. “Breedlove commits nearly all his time to the basketball team and strives to make each and every one of his players better both on and off the court,” Parker Jordan ‘11 said. Breedlove has welcomed the changes he sees around campus and is excited to watch the community expand. Although admissions welcomes many more students than in years past, the school still feels like a close-knit community. “They’ve done a great job in maintaining some of the history of the campus while still keeping up with popular trends in architecture and design,” Breedlove said. Apart from devoting so much of his life to FWCD, Breedlove’s steadfast belief in how positive an impact not only the athletic program, but also the school as a whole has on children’s lives. This is apparent by the enrollment of his own children, McKenna ‘14 and Joseph ‘17. For Breedlove, their enrollment has been one of the highlights of his career at FWCD. Head athletic trainer and assistant athletic
director, Ed Chisholm, has also entrusted his children, Farris ‘19 and Kaylee ‘22, to the FWCD community, which he has served for 24 years.
“I get to do what I love to do. For that, I try my best to give Country Day my best each day.” Butch Traeder At the age of 25, Chisholm joined the school as the athletic trainer. Over the years, he has not only contributed a plethora of hats to the school’s training room, but also played a key role in the FWCD athletic program’s great success by ensuring that student athletes stay healthy. For many athletes, Chisholm has gone even further, extending past his job description and serving as a mentor and role model. “I have been training for four seasons now, and Trainer Ed has been just a great example of what an athletic trainer is,” Elise Chernosky ‘12 said. “He has taught me so much about athletic training. He is always ready for all our games and all of the students love him.” One of Chisholm’s proudest moments at FWCD actually embodies the extent of

his influence on student athlete’s lives. This moment came when Charles Varnell ‘93, who served as Chisholm’s student trainer for four years, earned a full athletic scholarship to attend Rice University as a student trainer. FWCD has given Chisholm the opportunity to not only touch the lives of others, but to also shape his own. “FWCD has not only provided me a career that I have thoroughly enjoyed, but it has brought so many wonderful people into my life,” Chisholm said. “In addition to all the terrific students I have had the opportunity to work with over the past 24 years, FWCD introduced me to my very best friend along with my wife, the most wonderful person in the world.” Chisholm has also enjoyed watching the school change due to the great rewards such growth brings. He also asserts that the school has changed in the right ways, while preserving the essence of the community he decided to dedicate his life to 24 years ago. “Funny, it is not about what has changed, but what really has always stayed the same,” Chisholm said. “This school has the most amazing students, year in, year out. The faces change, but the passion for excellence remains, and that just blows me away.” As much time as Breedlove and Chisholm have contributed to the FWCD athletic fwcd.org

athletes, but also as people.
“Butch and Murph are both some of the most respected coaches to ever coach here,” Breedlove said. “Not only because of their longevity, but also because of the way they continue to turn out successful programs time and time again.”
FWCD has given him the opportunity to do what he loves, coach wrestling. When asked about his plans for the future, Murph voiced only enthusiasm for continuing to contribute to FWCD.
Murph has contributed to the school’s athletic department, particularly the wrestling program, for 34 years. When he was 26, FWCD took him on as a wrestling, cross country and football coach. While he is still a versatile and well-known presence in the FWCD community, Murph has come to focus most of his energies on heading the wrestling program as the Wrestling Program director. “Coach Murph has the unique ability to push a wrestler through the trial of a wrestling match and beyond what anyone thought was possible,” Paul Mackey ‘11 said. Murph shares a special bond with a considerable percentage of student athletes, and his longevity has enabled him to coach both fathers and their sons. Murph enjoys touching student athlete’s lives and seeing them succeed, not only as fall/WINTER 2010
“I enjoy when kids come back after they graduate, and you see how they’ve done, their successes,” Murph said.
“I’m not gonna change a thing,” Murph said. Traeder, Girls Volleyball Program director, has also loved being a part of the FWCD community and has never regretted his decision to coach rather than become a ski bum. At the age of 16, he was diagnosed with what was known as Reyes Syndrome. He was the only person in the country to survive the condition that year, and this experience gave him a zest for life and helping others that has translated into his professional career. “I get to do what I love to do,” Traeder said. “For that, I try my best to give Country Day my best each day.” Traeder is by far the most decorated active coach at FWCD. He has been the head coach for a total of 18 championship teams, 15 of which were girls’ volleyball teams and three girls’ basketball teams.
He gives his all to every team, every season, every year, with his players’ best interest in mind. “Traeder would do anything to be sure we have not only a winning season but also a really fun season,” Lyndsey Garrison ‘11 said. “He knows how to mix strict coaching with fun drills during practice.” Although he claims to have had no part in his teams’ great success, this attitude in and of itself proves his aptitude as a coach. Because he works with all three divisions, Traeder has watched kindergarteners grow into the fine young adults that graduate each spring. He feels blessed to have a hand in these students’ journeys. “The biggest change is when a student goes from kindergarten to senior year,” Traeder said. “To be a part of that and to see that change over and over in different people is the most enjoyable.” FWCD is truly lucky that these four men have chosen to devote so much of their time and energy to the bettering of the community. Years will pass, classes will graduate and the campus will evolve and change, but these veterans of the athletic department and the athletes they inspire will preserve the greatness of FWCD and will guarantee that the essence of our great school is never lost.

Photos by Glen E. Ellman The football team set a goal. The seniors made the expectations and demands of the team known for all players and parents. The team jumped on board, the parents were right behind and the student body fell in place as well. The seniors knew for their goal to become a reality, everyone had to believe and make a commitment. As a result, their summer workout t-shirt motto was clear –“Earn it!’ All their hard work and dedication paid off, the cold and clear night of November 5 at TCU’s Amon G. Carter stadium. The Falcon football team came ready to play and won the SPC Division II Championship. Among a sea of students, parents, faculty, alumni and friends, the team made history with their 43-27 win over the Trinity Valley Trojans. The team not only brought home the SPC Championship (first time since 1981), they finished with a perfect 11-0 record. This was the first undefeated season since 1978. When asked what the key ingredient was that made the season so special, the overwhelming response was LEADERSHIP. Eighteen seniors set out on a mission to make this their best season ever. Senior Captain Stephen Tetirick said, “The seniors made a commitment to the program and the underclassmen stepped up to the challenge to help make it happen. It was clear from the start that everyone wanted the same thing and we were willing to work hard and make the necessary sacrifices to make it happen.” This group of senior boys proved that strong leadership makes a difference. This was reinforced when the team was named the Dave Campbell “Army Strong” team of the week. Each week, TexasFootball.com and the U.S. Army join together to select one team from every classification in high school football that demonstrated the qualities exhibited within the Army – those include leadership, commitment to excellence and a desire to make a difference as a member of a team. The 2010 Falcons brought fans of all ages to the games and have now inspired current and future Falcon athletes to strive for excellence. This team brought together an entire community to create wonderful memories that will last forever.

Jenn Tracy Garbee ’92
Jennifer Tracy Garbee ’92 (Jenn) developed a love for food and cooking when she was a young girl. She remembers helping her mother cook and experimenting with different recipes with friends in high school. She also loves to write and decided to pursue philosophy at Davidson College. After graduating from Davidson with a philosophy degree, Jenn worked in a museum, hoping to eventually be a curator. She quickly realized that she did not enjoy sitting behind a desk and enrolled in the California School of Culinary Arts where she earned a Patisserie diploma. Jenn was able to combine her love for food and writing in her current career. Jenn writes about food, but prides herself on NOT being a food critic. She says that in today’s blog world, everyone is a food critic. A story teller, Jenn prefers to write about the people behind the food. Jenn writes a monthly column in the Los Angeles Times, writes for LA Weekly’s Squid Ink blog and is one of the magazine’s regular book reviewers. Jenn spends most of her week researching local farmers, restaurant owners and niche food stores, requiring her research to involve trips to the farmers’ market, dining at a new restaurant or venturing out to a new candy shop generating buzz around town. She says, “I choose to find people who don’t have the time or money to invest in a publicist, but who wouldn’t want that kind of attention anyway. I love giving local artists publicity in what I believe is the honest way”. She considers the biggest perks of her job to be meeting new people and learning new things. She maintains communication with many of the people she interviews, whom she would otherwise never meet. She says she was lucky to find her current position. “I was in the right place at the right time,” Jenn says. “While I was an intern at the LA Times test kitchen, one of the writers approached me about writing a story. That story turned in to my monthly column, Artisan Family Businesses. I have a friend who works at LA Weekly, and she asked me to write for the magazine as a side job.”
A similar situation led Jenn to her first book, Secret Suppers: Rogue Chefs and Underground Restaurants in Warehouses, Townhouses, Open Fields, and Everywhere in Between. She was asked by her boss at Los Angeles Times to investigate and write about an underground restaurant in San Francisco. A literary agent saw the story and called to ask her if she wanted to write a book about this new concept. “It’s funny now,” Jenn says. “I thought the underground restaurant movement would be a phase, but the rest of the country is just now picking up on it.” Jenn recently was featured as a judge on the 2010 season of The Next Food Network Star because they were doing a segment on private supper clubs. When Jenn is not writing about secret good eats, she enjoys experimenting in the kitchen. She views food and cooking as art. Following recipes is not an option because she enjoys being creative with the ingredients. She credits FWCD with helping her to embrace the arts, when other schools were only focused on athletics. “In so many schools, you don’t feel important unless you’re an athlete,” Jenn said. “At FWCD, we really felt like we could do something special in other areas,” In her free time, Jenn enjoys taking weekend trips with her husband to hidden wineries tucked away from crowds and tourists, or visiting places she learns about through her research. You can read about Jenn’s discoveries at her website, eathistory.com/.

Rowland’s grandmother sold her version of the relish to celebrities like Doris Day and Bing Crosby.

Kimi Kolba’s ’98 work explores the contemporary landscape at night, revealing a psychological exploration within a physical space. Most of her works depict a minimal light source within residential and urban environments, such as a single window lit from within. It implies the activity of others, even though they can’t be seen. The importance in the photograph is what is not seen – what is implied. She provides minimal information, allowing a freedom and openendedness to her work, but not without direction. While seemingly voyeuristic or isolated, there is also a sense of belonging in the space – a comfortable exploration.

Dear FWCD Family, For nearly five decades, Fort Worth Country Day has worked to inspire the passion to learn, the courage to lead and the commitment to serve. Academic excellence pooled with the arts and athletics has proven to be a strong foundation for graduates of Country Day. Without the support of those who generously give and believe in the fundamentals and purpose of our School, we would not be able to help produce the next heart surgeon, marine biologist or President of the United States. We thank each of you for your dedication. In my first year as Board President, I was privileged to see the continued growth and maturation of the FWCD community. We have been able to undertake new initiatives and complete campaigns with rewarding dividends. As a result, our students have expanded opportunities to excel in the arts through the Sid W. Richardson Visual Arts Center and the Lou and Nick Martin Campus Center and have their parents experience a bit of their child’s day by having lunch in the Fischer Dining Pavilion. Your dedication to the students and the community keeps FWCD a leading independent school. Please join me in thanking the following Trustees who have diligently served the FWCD community and Board of Trustees through their time, ideas and talents: Ms. Tori Adams, Mr. Steve Palko, Mrs. Letty Waltrip, Mr. Bobby McGehee ’88 and Mr. Victor Boschini. I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome this year’s newest Trustees: Mrs. Rosalind Evans, Mr. Scott Sankary ’86, Mrs. Janet Bishop and Mrs. Liz Stapp Fleischer ’84. Without a doubt, FWCD has experienced a phenomenal year. The Board of Trustees is grateful for the parents, families, faculty and staff, alumni and friends of FWCD that have accepted the collective challenge of ensuring that students receive an exceptional education. As we turn our focus to the 2010-2011 year with enthusiasm and anticipation, FWCD will continue to strive for excellence in all that we do to achieve new heights for our students! Warmly, Randy Gideon President, Board of Trustees

We are honored and proud to have been asked to serve as your FWCD Fund Chairs, and we thank all of you who participated in the Fund. We pass the torch to Pepper and Scotty MacLean, knowing that they will achieve equal success with your support. Thank you again for all you have done for Fort Worth Country Day, it’s students, faculty and staff. Margaret and Stuart McDonald FWCD Fund Chairs

Alumni Participation Alumni giving to the FWCD Fund totaled $316,653, with 13 percent participation. Without philanthropic support from our alumni, Fort Worth Country Day would not be the vibrant, challenging college-preparatory school that it is. FWCD truly needs your continued support. Our gifts are an essential and integral part of the overall operation of the School. Those of you who donated this year should be pleased to have been a part of this tremendous effort, and I thank you for joining me. We look forward to welcoming new alumni to our Honor Roll of Donors in the coming years. Wonderful memories and connections abound from my years as a student, alumnae and parent. I feel fortunate to be a member of the FWCD family and am pleased to have served as alumni FWCD Fund chair this year. Cynthia Rimmer Prince ’87 FWCD Fund Alumni Chair

I am filled with gratitude at the increase in participation from the faculty and staff to the FWCD Fund. Every group on campus was well-represented, with Lower School, Grounds and General Administration attaining 100 percent. Our overall participation reached 91 percent. With each passing year, it seems that the faculty and staff of Fort Worth Country Day better understand the value of participation because it sends a strong message of confidence and enthusiasm for the future of our School and its students.

Grandparent Participation Fort Worth Country Day is a very special place for our family. Our son and grandsons received so many opportunities for education and enrichment that they would not have had anywhere else. We are so appreciative of all the grandparents and grandfriends who so generously gave to the FWCD Fund last year. Our gifts totaled $194,000 and we reached 15 percent participation. More than 100 grandparents became members of the Grandparent Honor Roll by giving at least $100 in honor of their grandchild.
FWCD is grateful for the leadership of Susan and Bobby Wroten, who served as the FWCD Fund Grandparent chairs this past year. Susan and Bobby are the parents of Eric Wroten ’92 and the grandparents of Luke ’22 and Gil ’23 Wroten and William Portwood ’20. Each year, FWCD grandparents participate in many areas of school life. For all that they contribute for the betterment of FWCD, we offer a warm thank you for making their grandchildren’s school a priority. This year we are pleased to report our grandparents’ generous contributions of $194,000 to the FWCD Fund.

Honor Roll of Giving PFA 2009-2010 PFA BOARD
2009-2010 PFA Fort Worth Country Dayâ€™s Parent Faculty Association (PFA) had another productive and prosperous year. We raised FWCD unity, lent support and made fun and funds through events and school community outreach. Our 2009-2010 events were very popular and successful and included Carnival, Holiday Sale, Bingo, Spring Parent Forum and the PFA Parent Party. The success of these events made the PFA fortunate enough to give gifts to each division of the School for a total of $50,000. In addition to the above events, the PFA established an Upper School Field Day, Junior Class Service Auction and a Middle School Movie Night to replace funds and camaraderie once generated by the Falcon Feeder. As a PFA we were fortunate to have the support of the FWCD Board of Trustees and Administration. It was an honor to serve with so many dedicated, creative and hard working volunteers and to be part of an organization which supports and provides fun, safe and enriching programs and services for our school community.

Honor Roll of Giving Breakthrough Fort Worth Breakthrough Fort Worth Breakthrough Fort Worth’s primary goals are to prepare hundreds of economically disadvantaged public middle school students to achieve college goals and to encourage talented and diverse high school and college age students to pursue careers in education. Our 2009-2010 programing once again helped set new benchmarks through important learning enhancements. A new school-year series ensured ninth grade students learned about the college admissions process and the variety of choices they have on their path to higher education. The Breakthrough National Collaborative’s new Improving Teacher Training Initiative (ITTI) strengthened our training standards for teachers and assistance. The program’s leadership education focus was heightened as volunteer teaching aide positions were nearly doubled and summer students learned about governance via a new Breakthrough Student Council. These advances fortify the children’s learning opportunities in the program and their path to a college education. Your generosity makes it all possible for them and on their behalf, thank you for your support and devotion to Breakthrough Fort Worth. Sincerely, Joe Breedlove Director of Breakthrough

Frasher Hudson Pergande Morgan ’13, Graham ’15 and Spencer ’17
Tom Purvis ’77 Thompson ’07 and Melissa ’09
David Ekstrom entered FWCD as a first grader in the fall of 1963 when the school opened. Before serving on the Board of Trustees he served on the Advancement and Investment Committees, on the Alumni Council for six years and is a past president of the FWCD Alumni Association. Ekstrom has been a Board member for four years and currently serves on the Executive and Finance Committees. Professionally, David has spent most of his career in the development of professional education materials, but now manages a private business with interest in real estate and oil and gas. A past board member of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society of Dallas Fort Worth, Ekstrom has lectured at CFA education programs in the United States, Europe and Africa. Ekstrom and his wife, Karen, have five children, including one, Claire ’14, currently attending FWCD.
Frasher Hudson Pergande has served on the FWCD Board of the Trustees since 2007. She serves on the Building and Grounds Committee and is currently the co-chair of FWCD’s 50th Anniversary celebration. She has also served as the president of the FWCD Alumni Association. She is member of the Executive Committees of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. At the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, she chairs the Collections Committee. Her husband John is the president of InsureZone. They have three children, Morgan ’13, Graham ’15 and Spencer ’17, attending FWCD.
A member of FWCD’s Board of Trustees since 2008, Tom Purvis returned to the Building and Grounds Committee after serving on it from 2003 to 2006. He is the president of Continental Real Estate, Inc., a real estate development firm. Purvis enjoys serving on the Board of Directors of the Fort Worth Zoo, Streams & Valleys and the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth. He and his wife, Michelle ’78, are parents of two FWCD graduates, Thompson ’07 and Melissa ’09.
When asked his reason for serving on the Board, Ekstrom replied, “I think FWCD offers a truly well-rounded educational experience, in an atmosphere that fosters the core values of the School. I hope that my children can make use of that wellrounded basis as they move on to college and beyond. As a trustee I hope to do what I can to support the faculty and staff in their efforts to deliver that education, and to assure that future students will have the same.”
When asked her reason for serving on the Board, Pergande replied, “FWCD has been a part of my life since 1969! I was a passionate student, and now am a passionate parent. When asked to be a board member, I accepted knowing that I would have the opportunity to gain an understanding of FWCD from “behind the scenes” and to have the chance to make sure FWCD is the best that it can be. When someone in the FWCD community has an issue that they want the Board to address I hope that they find me to be someone who is approachable, someone who is willing to listen and someone they believe will accurately represent their concerns in front of the board.”
When asked his reason for serving on the Board, Purvis replied, “As class of ‘77, it’s my pleasure to be associated with the school in a meaningful way. The fall of 1967 was my first year at Country Day and at the time the primary way to get to school was Bryant Irvin Road which was a small country lane with a one lane bridge that crossed the Trinity River. Things have changed a lot, both on Bryant Irvin and at the School, and it’s great to be a part of the continuing improvements to the campus and to the quality of the School.”
