In Memoriam - David P. Montgomery (Chairman Emeritus, Woodlynde School)

Woodlynde School mourns the passing of Chairman Emeritus David P. Montgomery (1946-2019). Mr. Montgomery served on Woodlynde’s board of directors from 1984 through 1994 and was board chair from 1985 through 1991, leading the school though the critical first years of Woodlynde’s arrival on its 12-acre, Main Line campus in Strafford, PA.  With deep appreciation for his years of devotion to Woodlynde’s mission and for his outstanding service to our community, the board of trustees elected Mr. Montgomery as Chairman Emeritus in 1994. He leaves a legacy of over 1,000 grateful Woodlynde alumni, and the entire Woodlynde community will miss his dedication and leadership.
