Washington, CT - On June 1st, Devereux Glenholme’s Executive Director, Maryann Campbell, hosted Phillip Darling, a former student, for a special trip down memory lane. Phillip toured the campus, enjoyed a special Glenholme lunch, and video taped the many visible changes throughout the property. As a student of Glenholme from 1968 to 1970, Phillip provided a personal narration of early segments of The Four Decades of Glenholme presentation recently premiered at Parents’ Weekend. Phillip also recalled the school’s first headmaster, Raymond E. Bebee, with great clarity; his former teacher, Jane Athas, with much fondness; as well as many student activities with expressive eloquence.

Phillip Darling returned to public school in Indiana after departing Glenholme and advanced his education at Purdue and Indiana University. In addition to his successful career, Phillip sets a positive example for all as he actively contributes to Midwest High Speed Rail Association and the Jazz Institute of Chicago, as well as volunteers at his local library.

Phillip Darling keeps Glenholme close to his heart; as he is a regular contributor to Glenholme’s Capital Campaign and Center for the Arts Campaign. Phillip demonstrates the many special qualities of an endearing philanthropist and Glenholme is proud to have him as a friend.

Devereux Glenholme is an exceptional boarding school for students with special needs, which offers an individually prescribed learning environment with a steadfast academic curriculum.
