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.
Celebrated for their service were:
San Juan Becera
Stephen Dickey ’89
Joe Breedlove ’78
Even in challenging times, the FWCD community gives back with great heart. FWCD students, families and faculty/staff made a difference for SafeHaven of Tarrant County, Como Community Center, Saving Hope Foundation and Saving Hope Animal Rescue Fund, and Breakthrough Fort Worth.
