Library Dedication

In March 2010, the PVPA library was officially named after Mayumi Doyama's ('08) grandfather — Herman Robert Ladenheim. Janice Doyama, Mayumi's mother, made a thoughtful and generous gift to PVPA, the second largest gift in the history of our school. This donation enabled us to realize our dream for a library and learning center on the third floor.

Herman Robert Ladenheim had a zest for life and learning. He was an entrepreneur, an avid gardener, baker, world traveler, and he had a genuine love of the arts and literature. Mr. Ladenheim's greatest joy was sharing his interest in the arts. His generosity enabled others to attend performances and presentations from such notable figures as Luciano Pavorotti, Andy Warhol, Jane Goodall, and Marilyn Horne. 

Thank you to the Doyama-Ladenheim family.
