D-E Kicks-Off Next Phase of Schmid Athletic Complex Campaign

D-E Alumni Relations and alumni gathered in early April on Solomon Field to launch and announce the naming of the new Schmid Athletic Complex. The naming is in honor of Chris Schmid’s impending June 2022 retirement from Dwight-Englewood after 43 years and in recognition of his dedicated service as the Director of Athletics, Head Boys Soccer Coach, Lacrosse and more. 

This complex and the accompanying landscaping and beautification of the area surrounding Solomon Field will be a fitting tribute to a man who has served D-E so well for so long.

The plan is to officially name the new Schmid Athletics Complex (currently under construction) on Saturday, June 11, at 11:30 AM, in a special retirement celebration for Chris Schmid. Thanks to earlier support, the School has already raised $100,000 during the first phase of this campaign—over 12 years ago.  Alumni, families and friends are encouraged to join in honoring Chris Schmid’s D-E legacy, and help raise an additional $100,000 by June 2022. 

Donors who give a total amount of $1,000 and above will receive special recognition in a dedicated area of the Schmid Athletic Complex. This amount includes gifts already made to the first phase of Schmid campaign in 2012.
