Western Campus Dedication

On Saturday, May 7, we celebrated the grand opening of the western campus.  Board members past and present, alumni, donors, administrators, boarding students, parents and friends, gathered on our 30-acre western campus to dedicate our new dormitory and several gathering spaces. 

GRAND OPENING OF THE WESTERN CAMPUS

 “I am so incredibly grateful for the many who have had a hand in making this come to life, and today we honor and thank several Laker families.” Headmaster Chris Post 

CARTER AND COWAN MAKE AN EXTRAORDINARY $3 MILLION PLUS GIFT 

Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of Bob Carter ‘64 and his wife Carol, and Joe Cowan H’21 and his wife Ozzie,  the boarding facility is now known as Carter-Cowan Hall. 

The friendship between these families has stretched over six decades. Joe, a current member of BL’s Board of Trustees, was named an honorary alum of the class of 2021, two of his grandsons are current BL students and two more are alumni.  Bob, BL class of ‘69, is a distinguished alumnus, past chair of the Board of Visitors and past president of the Board of Trustees. His son, Trent, is a member of the class of ‘90, and Bob’s brother, Bud, graduated in the class of 1960. 

THE MOLLETT FAMILY AGORA

The Charles T. Bauer Foundation, thanks to past parent Janet Hartman and BL trustee and honorary alumnus Ted Bauer H'07, honored the Mollett Family by naming the outdoor courtyard and promenade The Mollett Family Agora. This naming honors the many contributions Richard ‘69 and his wife Dort have made to the School, and their sons, alumnus and trustee Ryan ‘97, who celebrated his 25th reunion on Saturday, and Brandon ‘94, who has served in numerous positions at Boys’ Latin including head of middle school. Brandon is currently Boys’ Latin’s academic dean.

THE BARTON S. MITCHELL H'07 GREAT ROOM

The great room, the common area in the dorm, is named for honorary alumnus and former BL trustee Barton S. Mitchell H’07. It was made possible through the generous donation of the Mitchell Wolff families: wife Beth Mitchell, their daughter Kimberly Mitchell Wolff and husband John (P ’25,’ 27, ’29), his sons Jim Mitchell ’87 and wife Jill, and  David Mitchell ’85 and wife Kim.
