Meet Morven Park! Each month we will introduce you to a member of the Park's staff or Board of Trustees. This month we're profiling Mary Lou Leipheimer, 2021 president of the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation (WDMF) Board of Trustees, to learn more about her background and her love for Morven Park.

In this blog post we highlight the sequence of events and process that led to the launch of the Morven Park Center for Civic Impact's digitization project. Virtual learning has become a reality for most school systems, and Morven Park is eager to move forward with the professional digitization of our curriculum for the benefit of LCPS and beyond. Morven Park thanks The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, the Loudoun Chamber Foundation, and a private donor for their assistance in funding the initial phase of this project.

The Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation (WDMF) is pleased to announce that Stacey Metcalfe has been selected as the next Executive Director/CEO of Morven Park, effective January 11, 2021.
