2020-21 Annual Report | Tribute Gifts

Gifts in Honor or Memory

Throughout the year, we receive many gifts in honor of alumni, students, faculty, and staff—past and present. These gifts are special reminders of Solebury’s commitment to creating community and providing a sense of home for our students, their families, our beloved faculty, and dedicated staff while they are here. 

The connections made at Solebury truly last a lifetime, and these tribute gifts are a reminder of the lasting impressions our community makes on all of us who are fortunate enough to be part of it.

Guy Lewis Bench

When the news of the passing of a fellow classmate reached John Sadwith ’68, he knew that a special celebration of Guy’s spirit was in order. Guy, John and his wife Karen Grote, and other alumni would reunite at Solebury School Reunion weekends to reminisce, but mostly to laugh. Recently, thanks to Guy’s generous friends, an enduring remembrance of Guy’s time at Solebury was installed on campus. This bench will provide a peaceful respite in the Memorial Garden of the Abbe Science Center’s courtyard. Guy would be more than honored to have you take a seat on his bench.

Thoughtful gifts like this, given in memory of a loved one, are another way of supporting Solebury School and help to create even more meaningful spaces on our beautiful campus.

We are so thankful to the donors who made these unique gifts to our community this year:
