Harry R. Weller Future Fund

The River School community is deeply saddened by the passing of Harry Weller on November 19, 2016. Harry was the spouse of the Chair of our Board of Trustees, Rachel Moore Weller and parent of Luke (Falcons '16) and Cash (Osprey class).

Harry was passionate about his family and the education of his sons. He was a strong advocate for The River School and adviser to Head of School Nancy Mellon. Harry invested in The River School's future as one of its most generous and active supporters.

Rachel asked us to establish the Harry R. Weller River School Future Fund, which will serve as the seed fund for The River School's next chapter. Harry held the mission and vision of The River School close to his heart and believed it would revolutionize deaf education, and shift the paradigm on how we teach language and literacy to all children.

If you would like to honor Harry's memory, contributions can be made to Harry R. Weller River School Future FundWe are grateful for all that Harry did for The River School and will work with Rachel to ensure that his legacy endures.
