SCDS Renews Schmidt Lecture Series

Country Day is pleased to announce the renewal of the Schmidt Lecture Series. The series was created in 2007 by over 90 donors through the Louis W. & Nellie H. Schmidt Endowment Fund as a way to honor the legendary couple. 
"We are excited about resurrecting the Schmidt Lecture Series," said Advancement Director Craig Brooks.  "This is a wonderful way to honor two legendary figures in the School's history while bringing impactful programming to the school community."

The Schmidt Fund series will kick off on January 23 2017 at 7PM, with Rob Evans as the first speaker. Evans is a clinical and organizational psychologist and the Executive Director of The Human Relations Service in Wellesley, Massachusetts. A former high school and pre-school teacher, and for many years a child and family therapist, he has consulted in more than 1,700 schools throughout the U.S. and internationally, working with teachers, administrators, and boards, and speaks widely at educational conferences.Rob speaks to parents in a straight, common-sense way that avoids the usual clichés, and, with wit and humor, helps parents recognize their strengths, rethink their responsibilities, and concentrate on strategies they can actually apply.

Evans will be on campus working with faculty and the administrative team, as well speaking to parents in Jelks Auditorium with his lecture Family Matters: Raising Healthy Children in Challenging Times.
