Head of School Welcomed During Live 60th Anniversary Broadcast
The Benjamin School community welcomed new Head of School Dave Faus during a 60th anniversary celebration the morning of September 24. The live event, produced by upper school students and broadcast from the BTV News studio, included a retrospective of the School’s history featuring Susy Benjamin and Jack and Barbara Nicklaus followed by remarks by Mr. Faus and Board of Trustees Chairman Darren Lowe.
Faus joined Board Chair Darren Lowe and upper school BTV News anchor Sydney Steinger on-set in the upper school tv production studio. The live streamed event included a mix of pre-recorded videos and live remarks by Faus with an introduction from Lowe. Faus was presented with welcome gifts from the Benjamin community, including an engraved Tiffany clock presented by Lowe on behalf of The Board of Trustees.
"It's an honor to join the Benjamin community, especially now as we celebrated 60 years of tradition and innovation," said Faus. "It took very little convincing for me to take this opportunity to come to Benjamin . . . What attracted me to Benjamin the most was the emphasis on the whole student. I truly believe we provide the opportunities for our students to become the best versions of themselves. Thank you for allowing me to carry on the torch as the 11th Head of School at TBS."
Lowe, when interviewed at the conclusion of the event, said he and the Board speak unanimously when they say that Faus is an invaluable addition to The Benjamin School.
“He understands the fabric of our community and is mission aligned,” said Lowe. “We are thrilled to have him join the Benjamin family.”
