The Bazemore Society, named for Tim and Lisa Bazemore, was founded in 2014 to recognize and honor those members of the Country School community who donate to the Bazemore Fund, over any period of time, a cumulative total of $2,500 or more. As of June 2018, approximately $285,000 has been pledged in support of the Bazemore Fund. Click here for a list of members.
Society members are invited to gather annually to meet and be inspired by those most impacted by Country School and Horizons tuition assistance programs: Horizons students, alumni, parents and teachers.
On May 22, 2018, 40 members of the Bazemore Society gathered on campus for breakfast and to hear from Country School students who are also Horizons Scholars. Two members of the Class of 2018 who are Horizons Scholars are Jennifer Llamas and Brian Villalta, and together with NCCS alumnus and former Horizons Scholar himself, Joseph Chan, shared moving stories about their personal academic journeys.
Tim Bazemore joined in by sending a pre-recorded video to the group with messages of congratulations to the students and appreciation to Joe Chan for his continued devotion to NCCS and to Horizons.
The next Bazemore Society event is scheduled for Spring 2019.
