A Message From the Campaign Chairs

Bill Alfond ’67

Inspired by true courage, propelled by the firm belief that anything is possible, we invite you to join us in supporting this campaign.

Together, we will ensure that our students are prepared to be the knowledgeable citizens, agile entrepreneurs, responsible community members, and ethical leaders our world so desperately needs.

To accomplish all this, we must come together as a community to rally behind With True Courage, The Campaign for Governor’s. In doing so, we will bequeath the best possible Governor’s education to many generations to come.

These are lofty goals, ones not easily achieved. But as the Dummer family motto affirms, “With true courage, nothing is impossible.”

Message From the Head of School

We are here for one reason only: to mentor young people who will go on to lead lives of consequence.

Doing this requires that we help them find and nurture the courage within themselves, which in turn unlocks a world of opportunity. For young people, it’s a vital part of the learning process. Students need the chance to test their beliefs, learn from one another, and develop a voice of their own.

Courage allows them to explore new frontiers, identify and solve important problems, and realize seemingly impossible dreams. The future of our nation and the world depends on the courage of our young people to improve their own lives, live with empathy and compassion for others, and make a positive difference in the world.

—Peter H. Quimby, Ph.D. ’85, P’14, Head of School
