On Monday, April 25, The Dunham School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Carpenter-Randall College Counseling Suite, located in the newly renovated McVea Quest Center. The updated college suite was dedicated in memory of Dave and Erica Carpenter by their daughter, Laurie Randall Duchmann, and their grandchildren, Ally Randall ’19 and Jackson Randall ’22.
Thanks to a generous gift from Duchmann and the David and Rica Carpenter Foundation, the McVea Quest Center has been transformed into a multifunctional learning and research space, suitable for both independent and collaborative study. Improvements to the 25-year-old facility include new lighting, modular furniture, and glass divider walls. The renovation of McVea Quest Center is the first campus improvement project completed as part of the school’s 2021-2026 Strategic Plan.
Following the dedication of the Carpenter-Randall College Counseling Suite, the Dunham Class of 2022 gathered in the school’s chapel to announce their college decisions. To date, the 65 members of this year’s graduating class have been accepted into more than 100 colleges and universities, including Columbia, Duke, Baylor, Washington and Lee, and LSU.
