New Board of Trustees Members

We are pleased to announce the addition of two new members to the Waldorf High School Board of Trustees. Please join us in welcoming:

David Schmahmann: David is the parent of 12th grade student, Olivia Schmahmann. David openly and often expresses his sincere appreciation of this school and our work with students and is happy to support our efforts in this new role. David is an accomplished attorney and is the published author of a number of novels and short fiction, as well as numerous legal publications. After working for a number of years in Burma, he continues to be deeply involved in a charity project, Burma Border Projects, with a mission to educate migrant Burmese children living in a border area in Thailand. David has already volunteered his time to a number of our development efforts and advised the school as we initiated our Farm and Wilderness programs. Currently, he is a shareholder in a real estate development and portfolio management company in the Greater Boston area.

Dana Dilworth: A committed and longtime supporter of our school, Dana is a registered architect with 30 years’ experience and is presently a senior project manager for the Boston Housing Authority, currently responsible for ten redevelopment projects with an estimated $475M construction budget. Dana offered his help and guidance as we explored options for our Farm and Wilderness programs. He also designed and constructed sets for our drama performances, and chaperoned numerous trips for our classes with his husband, Joseph O”Donnell, our Humanities’ teacher. Doing so, he has grown to be a favorite of students. Concerned about some of the economic and/or academic challenges of some of our students, he has found quiet ways of offering support. Dana shares that he is eager to support the school’s next phase of development.
We deeply appreciate having David and Dana join our Board and look forward to our work together to advance Waldorf High School. David and Dana join fellow Board members: Bruce Miller, Dan Raizen, Dan DeHainaut, Robin Nachman, Tom Vance, Cedar Oliver and Mara White.

Bruce Miller, Board President
Mara White, Director of School
