“We find ourselves in a moment where meaningful human connection with people creating more of the good they want to see in the world is essential. I was drawn to OMTL because of the people on the Campaign Committee – they are passionate, engaged, warm, welcoming, genuine, and strong champions for the students and community at Perk. I leave each conversation inspired, renewed, and keen to see what we can continue to create together both for Perk and our global community.”
“Building a new Student Center at the heart of the campus is an excellent metaphor for how we’re centering the relationships and resources that bolster the learning and living of our community in OMTL. This new space is beautiful, functional, and malleable – meaning it can be arranged to evolve as the field of education does to meet the needs of our students now and for generations. It’ll be a wonderful place to refuel, learn, explore, and connect with new people and ideas!”
“When I was serving as Board Chair, I realized the school needed a vibrant student center. Thus, Lloyd’s Café! Because of the teachers of 1963 to 1965, I gained the work ethic and study skills to be able to do college-level work and be successful in my career and personal life. I co-chair this committee as a way to say thank you to the school community who made me who I am today and build a bright future for tomorrow’s community members.”
“The student center is central to the continued growth of our institution, and it will be a foundation that provides a wealth of opportunities for our teachers and students to exchange ideas and engage in forward-thinking ways to make the most of a Perkiomen educational experience. Development is a team effort, and it has been so enjoyable to share this experience in working with my colleagues on the Campaign Committee to achieve this inspirational goal at Perkiomen.”
“Working alongside enthusiastic volunteers and among committed and energized alumni and parents has made OMTL Campaign one of my most fulfilling professional experiences. The broad and positive spirit has been pervasive and has driven our efforts from day one. The quality of everyone’s participation gratefully has been matched by great generosity, which I expect is, in great part, due to the priorities being strategic programmatically and easily recognizable as impactful – first to the student body and in turn to admissions, insuring our position as a successful independent school. This is what excites me most… that said, the ping pong tables planned for the outdoor recreation space get me jazzed too!”
“During our lifetime, there will be doors that appear and you must have the courage to walk through them. If you don’t you’ll never expand your horizons and you will always stay where you are. Open that door, walk right through that door, and experience what’s on the other side of that door. Yes, it’s frightening. Yes, it’s new. But guess what? You might find something that’s really important to you.”Phil Lloyd ’65
