Deeply Saddened by the news of Dick Wade’s passing . . . and missing his commitment and generosity to Center in the Park and the strong connection we enjoyed with GFS when Dick served as a board member of CIP! With gratitude and condolences . . . http://www.philly.com/philly/obituaries/richard-l-wade-69-germantown-friends-head-of-school-20171116.html

    Richard L. Wade, 69, Germantown Friends head of school
    When Richard L. Wade arrived on the Germantown Friends School campus in 1993, enrollment was down. Administrators had left. The faculty was fragmented. The school faced financial problems. In taking the job as head of school, Mr. Wade, a tall, courtly Southerner who had run the Rippowam Cisqua School in Bedford, N.Y., for the previous decade, assigned himself to guide the Quaker school known as GFS into the 21 st century.
