Announcing the Richard Weaver Fund at Menlo-Atherton High School

Original post made by Kelly Todd, another community, on Feb 17, 2009

In his 43rd year at Menlo-Atherton, Mr. Weaver is a legend. A Stanford University graduate with a BA in history and masters in education, he has taught Western Civilization and United States History to generations of students. As head of the history department in the 1970’s, he succeeded in getting the Advanced Placement designation for the US History course so popular today. “Mr. Weaver has been an unforgettable influence on my life. He is an extraordinary teacher and human being. A real hero,” says Steve Westly, M-A class of 1974, and former California state controller. “Mr. Weaver is one of those teachers a student never forgets. He’s upbeat, devoted to teaching, and an incomparable role model,” agrees Kelly Wright, M-A class of 2005.
