THE JOHN J. CAVANAUGH SPEAKER SERIES AND FACULTY DEVELOPMENT ENDOWED FUND
The John J. Cavanaugh Speaker Series and Faculty Development Endowed Fund was created in 2022 by Head of School Dr. Edwin P. Gordon to honor John Cavanaugh, who has served the Congressional School community for more than 46 years as a Middle School History and Latin teacher and student advisory group leader. The fund was created to honor Mr. Cavanaugh's extraordinary legacy of service to the School as a faculty member by supporting the professional development of Congressional School faculty members and the recruitment of new ones. This endowment represents an important investment in the School’s faculty members and their remarkable contributions to Congressional students and the broader community.
Due to generous initial gifts donated by alumnus parents Sandra Buteau and Phil Budwick, by Grandparents, Susie and John Kane, Head of School Dr. Edwin Gordon and his wife LaRita, and Founding Family members, William and Gretchen Devers, this fund will ensure resources are available in perpetuity for our excellent faculty and their continued growth and development. But more still needs to be done.
Please consider contributing to the John J. Cavanaugh Speaker Series and Faculty Development Endowed Fund today.
