To celebrate and honor Black History Month, Upper School students participated in a film screening of “The Road to Justice,” a documentary executive produced by alumnus André Robert Lee ‘89.
With sadness, we write to share the news that Tom Scattergood, Class of 1966 and former member of the GFS faculty and administration, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2021.
Tom was part of a four-generation GFS family, with his father—former Head of School Henry Scattergood ’29—grandparents, and children having all attended school at 31 W. Coulter St. He was a student at GFS from 1952-66 and served in a variety of faculty and staff roles from 1976-1992. He taught English, History, and Quakerism; coached boys soccer; and served as a grade advisor, Director of College Placement, and Dean of Faculty.
We ask that you join us in holding his family in the Light, including his wife Kate Flynn and his children Joe ’00 and Abby ’03; sisters Anne Fogg ’58, Sarah Ashe ’60, Eleanor Lash ’63, and Mary Scattergood; and many relatives, including nephew James Ermarth ’00. Tom is predeceased by his parents Henry Scattergood and GFS teacher Sally Scattergood, as well as grandparents Alfred Scattergood and Mary Emlen Scattergood (class of 1896).
