FWCD Head of School Eric Lombardi: Lamplighter School Spirit Award Recipient

Eric Lombardi was named one of two Lamplighter School Spirit Award Recipients on Friday, February 24 at an awards luncheon at the Lamplighter School in Dallas. The program included a surprise performance by the FWCD Upper School Chorus that was directed by Chuck Kraus.  
 
Mr. Lombardi, a 1973 Lamplighter School graduate, was presented this prestigious honor in front of the Lombardi family, Lamplighter Alumni, a group of FWCD Trustees, parents and Administration Team members who were there to support him.  
 
The Lamplighter Spirit Award was established in 2003 by the Alumni Council during The Lamplighter School’s 50th anniversary. Lamplighter recipients, selected annually by the Alumni Association, exhibit the qualities of a lifelong learner, are willing to take risks and display creativity in their work.
 
Lombardi grew up in Dallas, where he attended The Lamplighter School and St. Mark’s School. He graduated cum laude from Dartmouth College with a degree in history (1985) and subsequently earned a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from Duke University (1991), and later a Master of Education from Columbia University (2013), where, in a sabbatical year from St. John’s, he participated in the Klingenstein Program in Private School Leadership.
