FWCD Celebrates a Birthday

To celebrate Fort Worth Country Day’s birthday, members of the School community put together the 2021 Founders' Day video. Founders’ Day commemorates FWCD’s incorporation: March 6, 1962. Faculty members arranged time to view the video with students in their homerooms or advisories, and staff members watched when they had a short break. The video features FWCD's faculty/staff service recognition in intervals of five years, Club Viginti Induction (for 20 years of service), and some fun with a few familiar faces.
