The Daniel and Jane Carpenter Award was established in 2006 by Daniel M. Cain ’64 in honor of the late Daniel and Jane Carpenter and their commitment to, and support of, The Williston Northampton School, its students, parents and alumni. This award is given to an alumna or alumnus who through “effort and energy” as well as financial contribution, has had a substantial impact on the school.
It is my great honor to present this award to David Teece, class of 1972. David’s support of the school has come in many shapes — in past years he has been a member of the Reunion gift committee, and an Annual Fund volunteer. In 1995, David became a Williston Northampton parent as well, when his daughter Erica, class of 1999, enrolled. Alex, class of 2004 and Samantha, class of 2007, soon followed and David’s commitment grew stronger as a member of the Parent Executive Committee as well as a volunteer with the Admission office. David has been a leading contributor to the Annual Fund for 41 consecutive years and his generous gifts to the school’s Physical Plant have helped make our community a comfortable place to call home.
David could not be here with us tonight, so accepting the award on his behalf is his daughter Samantha, class of 2007, who is here celebrating her 10th reunion.
