Powell Family Improves Dock Area, Creates New Beach

The Powell Family generously supported significant improvements to the dock area on the Bolles Upper School San Jose Campus, including safety improvements, the replacement and upgrade of the floating dock, the paving of the peninsula and the creation of a new beach area.

Bolles alumnus Billy Powell ’72, who spearheaded the project, his son Ben Powell ’05 and granddaughter Emerson ’35 visited the updated dock by the Peyton Boathouse and Rice Family Crew Complex on February 28 – taking a few special moments to enjoy the newly minted Powell’s Beach.

The Powell family has a four-generation legacy at The Bolles School, beginning with Hugh Powell ’46, who is about to celebrate 75 years of marriage to his wife, Peggy Powell, on March 1. The Powells also funded the new Whitehurst Campus train in the fall of 2023.

Thank you to the Powells for their continued support of The Bolles School! #BulldogProud
