Recognizing his years of service and contributions to the organization
The Seven Peaks Board of Directors is very proud to recognize Scott Lovejoy for his many years of service, personal dedication, and financial contributions to the school.
Last Tuesday, topping off the lineup of Re-Enrollment Night presentations, longtime Seven Peaks parent, supporter and former board chairman, Scott Lovejoy was invited onto the stage to receive the Chairman Emeritus Award.
Seven Peaks School co-founder and board member Carol Tobey made the announcement and presented the award.
“Scott is a dear friend, an incredible man with a great heart, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this special recognition,” said Tobey.
Humbled and soft-spoken in his manner, Lovejoy took to the podium and shared some of his heartfelt thoughts. “Thank you very much for this honor. I deeply appreciate receiving it from Seven Peaks, a school which our family dearly loves.”
Reflecting on his past work and experience with Seven Peaks: “I spent nine years on the Board with others who were as committed to this school as anyone in this room. I was honored to serve with them. Each Board member made major contributions to the success of our initiatives and projects, as well as balancing the budget and setting policy. Only the efforts of dedicated, committed parents can accomplish what we all seek for our school.”
Since Re-Enrollment Night is an opportunity for current parents to learn more about what makes Seven Peaks special, while reminded of why they are choosing this school over the other options available to them, Lovejoy explained what he believes makes the critical difference.
“I’m often asked, why do you love this school so much? As with most things one loves, there are many reasons,” noted Lovejoy. “For one thing, we recognize the immense value that comes from the academic rigor and individual attention given to our children. For another, the great community of like-minded parents who have joined together to support and benefit our most precious assets: our children.”
“The parents and families at Seven Peaks set a high standard, and that standard is supported by our entire community, which in turn benefits all our children.”
Lovejoy’s remarks received a standing ovation.
“We couldn’t agree more with Scott’s thoughtful assessment,” observes Tobey. “The Board is committed to continuing the history of excellence and I’m so glad we can still draw from Scott’s wisdom and experience to ensure the future for Seven Peaks.”
Seven Peaks is currently working on a milestone event: the search for the first Head of School to take the organization into the future. Lovejoy continues to be involved through his advisory role to the current Board of Directors.
