CLAREMONT, CA – You know them as an expert in international arms issues, an award-winning novelist, an engineer, and a political journalist and entrepreneur.

We know them as graduates who credit The Webb Schools for launching them on journeys of discovery and lives of impact – just like the donor who pledged one of the largest gifts ever made to an independent high school.

So, what makes a school worthy of such a donation?

Hear it in their own words:

Dr. Wendin Smith, adviser to NATO on countering weapons of mass destruction: “I can imagine no greater compass than Webb’s unbounded and courageous thinking – grounded in honor, moral courage and service. “

John Scalzi, New York Times best-selling author and Hugo Award winner: “Both the education and the support I got at Webb made it possible for me to make writing my life’s work.”

Samantha Ainsley, senior software engineer, Netflix: “The Math Department at Webb embraced me, and I formed lifelong friendships with my classmates. I received an academic scholarship to Columbia, which would have never been possible without Webb’s guidance.”

Josh Marshall, founder and editor of Talking Points Memo: “Webb made me think much bigger about what I could accomplish, what I could be in the world.”
