First endowed chair established at ASL


In June 2017, family, friends, and ASL faculty and staff gathered to celebrate the creation of the school’s first endowed chair, The Bandeen Family Endowed Chair in the Specific Learning Differences Program. The establishment of this chair, the first of its kind at ASL, honors the dedicated leadership of our faculty, and the caring and personalized education provided to our students through the Specific Learning Differences Program.

Derek Bandeen P ’07 ’11 ’12 ’17 said, “Bonnie and I are privileged to support an endowed chair as we appreciate the importance of an endowment to the ongoing success of a program.” Bonnie added, “Our children have benefited immensely from SLD and it’s an honor to give the opportunity to others.”
