The advancement department proudly reported that Harker faculty reached a record level of 100 percent participation in this year’s annual giving campaign.
At a recent faculty meeting, Joe Rosenthal, executive director of advancement, thanked teachers for going “all in” to support Harker students. To celebrate the achievement, all three campuses held separately organized faculty free dress days.
Rosenthal thanked members of the Faculty Development Council (FDC), a group working to increase faculty participation in the annual giving process, and encouraged others to join in. As a result of the record-setting faculty/staff drive, many parents were also inspired to make a gift or pledge to the campaign.
This year’s FDC members:
• Representing the lower school: Michelle Anderson, Diann Chung, Jared Ramsey, Eileen Schick and Grace Wallace.
• Representing the middle school: Jonathan Brusco, Monica Colletti, Keith Hirota, Vandana Kadam, Andy Keller and Pat White.
• Representing the upper school: Victor Adler, Chris Colletti, Chris Florio, John Heyes, Andrew Irvine, Smriti Koodanjeri, Eric Nelson, Sue Smith, Bradley Stoll and Troy Thiele.
