Bob Oxenburgh, Director of Finance and Facilities, will be retiring at the end of the school year after nearly a decade of service to The Athenian School. Among Bob’s many accomplishments and contributions: creating a “shadow endowment” for the school by money saved from greening efforts; getting Athenian 70% off the grid; converting 60% of waste haulage to recycling and compost; and much, much more. Thank you Bob for all that you have done for us!
In honor of Bob’s retirement, The Athenian School community organized an environmental pledge campaign. More than 160 individuals committed to adding one more sustainable activity to their daily routine. Watch the video above to see all the pledges!
