I would like to inform our community of the retirement of our former Director of External Relations Frau Valerie Lark-Webler.
Frau Lark-Webler’s impact has been enormous over the more than 20 years of her employ here at ISS. She has been a highly respected Facility Manager and a valued member of our Leadership Team. She has built contacts with local corporations, communities and our alumni. Most of all, she has helped us all work in best practice facilities, keeping us safe and inspired by our surroundings. The most salient example of that is the fact that our Degerloch Lower School is named after her. She is also the colleague most responsible for finding our Sindelfingen facility and has been instrumental in the development of our renovation plans and of course the current Degerloch Upper School project. She will continue to assist us with these projects as an external contractor.
Her work has always centered around supporting student learning and her gentle, and highly organized approach has always been greatly appreciated and respected. I know I speak for all of us when I wish her the best with her retirement.
Mr Tim Kelley
