Congratulations to our great friends Robert P. and Arlene R. Kogod, whose family foundation was honored by the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The John R. Chandler Award, presented to the Kogods for their longtime support of independent schools, recognizes what Sidwell Friends School has long known: Students, teachers, and entire communities have been strengthened by Bob and Arlene’s passion for education. Other institutions whose work has been sustained by the Kogods include the SEED Foundation, co-founded by Eric Adler ’82 to establish a public boarding school for underserved children. We are grateful for having had the opportunity to nominate them.
Kogod Family Foundation Receives 2017 Chandler Award
The skies may have been gray, but the future is bright for the School's newest alumni.
The 37th Annual John Fisher Zeidman ’79 Memorial Lecture was more than an incisive and engaging discussion of China’s social, political, and cultural transformations over the past 40 years. It also represented the collective memory of Sidwell Friends, found in a lively cross-section of alumni, current students, parents, grandparents, and current and former faculty that spanned over 75 years of Sidwell Friends history.
Kiki Rice '22 has been named the 2018-19 Gatorade District of Columbia Girls Soccer Player of the Year. Rice is the third Gatorade District of Columbia Girls Soccer Player of the Year to be chosen from Sidwell Friends School.
