This year, we recognized Bob Tait ’75 as the 2019 Distinguished Alumni Award recipient. Bob has been a tremendous contributor to Allendale Columbia School throughout his lifetime.
He is a graduate of the class of 1975 and has given his time, talent, and treasure through board service, enrollment of his children Alex ’08 and Margaret ’10, generous donations, and support and vision for the establishment of the international houses on campus alongside the Garrett and Mangan Families. Not only has Bob been a steward of our beloved AC, but he has instilled the same values of service and giving back in his family. His wife, Amy, has also served on the AC Board of Trustees, and both children have been generous donors to the school. Bob embodies all of the values of the AC community and what it means to be an AC alum. Not only has he achieved great things professionally, but he is humble and loyal, and he even knows when to provide comedic relief during challenging discussions. His attitude is collaborative and positive, yet he is direct and goal-focused.
