Harry R. Weller River School Future Fund Harry R. Weller River School Future Fund has been established by Harry's wife Rachel. Harry was passionate about The River School and its future. He was an advocate for River School and adviser to Head of School Nancy Mellon in her pursuit of expanding our model program. Harry invested in The River School's future as one of its most generous and active supporters. If you would like to honor Harry, contributions can be made to the Harry R. Weller River School Future Fund, a project close to his heart that he believed would revolutionize deaf education as well as shift the paradigm on how we teach language and literacy.
