Charley Harris participated in initial discussions with Landmark's founder, Dr. Charles Drake about opening a school for students with dyslexia in the late 1960s. Shortly after its inception, Charley joined Landmark as its Assistant Headmaster. Charley's presence, expertise, and networking helped greatly smooth the path for the school's evolution, from its early years to the present. Administratively, professionally, and personally, Charley Harris has enriched Landmark in every role he has played.
Carol Ann Dumond joined the faculty as our Librarian in July 1987. For the next 22 years, she was the assiduous steward of the library, professionalizing its services, increasing and updating the volumes held in circulation, and encouraging students and faculty to utilize the library in their academic work. She was key in moving the library from its former cramped quarters into the new Eric Alexander Library. In this new space, she expanded and improved library and media services and made the library the central piece of the Alexander Academic Center. Our electronic card catalog C.A.R.D. (Carol Ann Roberts Dumond Database) is named in her honor. Carol Ann retired in June of 2009. Faculty miss her dulcet southern accent and her Jambalaya get-togethers.
