Hello, Academy community!
I am only just receiving this information, but I want to pass on to you all that I know. Last Thursday night, Mr. Hibbett met with Mr. Tom Smidt, incoming chairman of the Academy Board of Trustees. One result of this meeting was the news that the trustees are planning two upcoming events. They are described as “Information Sessions for all interested parents and community members,” and will reportedly focus on the history of Albuquerque Academy’s endowment. We’re informed that these meetings will be structured as a 45-50 minute presentation by Academy treasurer Gary Gordon, followed by a question and answer period. Finally, we’ve been told that “some trustees” will be there; Mr. Watson is expected to attend as well, I’m told.
Mark your calendars! The presentations will be:
Saturday, April 7, 9:00-11:00 a.m., and
Monday, April 9, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
The meetings will be in Simms Auditorium and no reservations are necessary.
Although these events do not sound like the “town halls” promised to the community by Mr. Honegger in his last email, they are a step in the right direction. Please plan to attend one or both if you can, and spread the word! Bring your questions!
