In Memory of Ann White
This past Friday, Ann White passed away from a heart attack at the age of 84.
A beloved leader, colleague, and friend, Ann taught history at Edmund Burke School from 1980 until her retirement in 2005. She is the namesake of Ann's Academy (Room 4) and was appointed the school's inaugural Academic Dean in 1988.
As Monica Miracky wrote in 2018, "Fiercely independent, outspoken, and well-read, Ann White demonstrated the power of human intellect every day, inspiring her students and colleagues to do the same. For 25 years, Ann was a fierce champion for the life of the mind."
Ann is survived by her sons Father Mark White '88 and Ben White '90 and grandsons Jacob and Raphael. Services will be held tomorrow, October 3, in Martinsville, VA.
Thank you, Ann. Your legacy and impact endure beyond measure.
