The Cape Fear Academy Board of Trustees conferred its first Trustee Emeritus title to Scott Corbett (’75) at its meeting on Thursday, April 23. Chairman Chad Paul began the ceremony by remembering the visionaries who built and led Cape Fear Academy from conceptual drawings to the multi-building, prestigious educational institution it is today. He continued on to say that the initial by-laws included a Trustee Emeritus status that could be granted to someone whom the trustees believed to have shown the same type of vision and dedication as the founders.
On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees, Head of School Don Berger presented Corbett with a framed proclamation that acknowledged his service as the President of CFA’s inaugural Alumni Council, four terms on the Board of Trustees, and many years on the Board’s Finance and Facilities Committees. Corbett thanked the trustees and said, “Of all the volunteer work I have ever performed, I have found my service as a Cape Fear Academy trustee to be the most enjoyable, both because of the quality of my fellow trustees, and because of my conviction that I was giving the next generation of young people the opportunity for more productive and satisfying lives.”
