Melrose Family Center for Servant Leadership
“The journey of leadership is about becoming and not attaining a final destination.”
— Ken Melrose, former Breck Trustee and Retired CEO
of the Toro Company, author of Making the Grass Greener
Established in 2013, the Melrose Family Center for Servant Leadership is the physical and programmatic embodiment of Breck School’s dedication to cultivating future leaders.
The concept of servant leadership, with its emphasis on the principles of leaders who lead by serving others, is deeply resonant with Breck’s mission and values as well as our Episcopal tradition. Through the Melrose Family Center, we will coordinate the efforts of Breck’s existing offices of Multicultural Initiatives, Service Learning and Community Outreach as well as curricular programs related to character and spiritual development.
Our dedicated space, located adjacent to the Samuel A. Salas Commons, will serve as a welcome to all who enter the Upper School from Breck’s main entrance — underscoring the school’s commitment to the work that will go on within its walls. Its flexible architecture will provide space for speakers, seminars, group work and individual projects.
As our work in the Melrose Family Center evolves, we will continue to look for ways to develop our students’ unique talents and capabilities, instill in each a deep sense of social responsibility, and support the journey of future generations of servant leaders for years to come.
