FPD dedicated the George Peake and Ann Peake Cross Country trail on Saturday morning, Oct. 19.

Headmaster Gregg Thompson, former cross country coach Joe McDaniel, current girls cross country coach April Cassell and Allen Peake all spoke at the event. A letter was also read from Athletic Director Greg Moore.

George and Ann played critical roles in the founding of the school. To honor and memorialize their love for FPD and the outdoors, the cross country trail on campus will forever bear their names.

The inaugural Day School Dash was held prior to the dedication as well.

FPD alumni, families and friends all gathered to participate in the morning festivities that included a 5K and 1-mile run and pancake breakfast.

Saturday’s dedication brings a close to Homecoming 2013. We look forward to seeing our alumni, families and friends again next year. Keep in touch!
