Dear Lovett Community:
This year marks my fifth and final academic year as chairman of Lovett’s Board of Trustees.  Lovett’s governance committee, ably led by Nancy Robitaille ’84, has completed the succession process, and I am pleased to announce that alumnus John O. Knox, Jr. ’88 will become Lovett’s next chairman on July 1.
John O. and the Knox family have a very long connection to the Lovett community.  The son of two Lovett alums (Dorothy Smith Knox Hines ’69 and John O. Knox, Sr. ’69), John O. is also the grandson of former Lovett Board Chair Rankin M. Smith, Sr.  Since 2010, he has served as a Lovett Trustee, chairing our excellent Endowment Committee while also serving on the Executive, Audit, and Education & Student Life Committees.  He currently co-chairs Lovett’s Strategic Planning Committee. He and his wife, Rae, are the parents of Mari Cole (Lovett Class of 2015), Harriet (Lovett Class of 2017) and John O. (Lovett Class of 2022).  
John O. graduated from the University of Georgia and earned an MBA from Georgia State University.  Today, he serves as Principal of Peregrine Investment Advisors, a wealth management firm. In addition to his deep involvement at Lovett, John O. serves as an Emeritus Trustee of the University of Georgia Foundation and as a Board Member of the John H. Carmical Foundation.  The Knox family are also members of Peachtree Road United Methodist Church.
As I complete my final year as chairman, I would like to thank the Lovett Board of Trustees and our outstanding Head of School Meredyth Cole for their tireless efforts on behalf of Lovett’s students.  Collectively, your Board and the leadership of Lovett recognize that our primary job is to provide the best learning environment possible for the children you entrust to us each and every day. Our decision-making has always been – and I dare say will always be – focused intently on putting Lovett students first, delivering a balanced, healthy educational environment.  I remain convinced that a Lovett education is more important today than ever before for success in our complex world. Together, with your help, Lovett prepares young men and women of promise for college and, frankly more importantly, for life.
As we approach our school’s centennial this decade, thank you for your support of The Lovett School.
Best regards,
R. Reid French, Jr., ’89
