Honoring Peter Mann
Peter Mann has had an immense impact on the lives of students at Brewster during his 25-year tenure. Now, as this legendary community figure retires and transitions to his next adventure, a growing group of alumni, parents, and friends are seeking to honor and celebrate his legacy.
In his quarter century at Brewster, Peter served as a member of the world language department, an Instructional Support teacher, a Community Living Parent, and the school’s Travel Coordinator. He was already well known in Wolfeboro prior to arriving at Brewster having taught language at Kingswood High School for two decades.
Peter is best known for his tireless efforts to guide students toward their best, his love of and care for the communities of Brewster and Wolfeboro, and his joyful compassion in making Brewster feel like home for all students—especially those traveling from afar.
Our goal was to honor Peter in a way that reflects the lasting impact he has made on so many young people.
THE VISION: To create a welcoming seating area on the lake-facing terrace of the renovated Rogers center where students and others can gather in his honor.
WHY THIS SPOT? One of Peter’s most visible passions has been his support of Brewster student-athletes as a spectator cheering on the Bobcats. The terrace will be a coveted location for observing games on Brown Field, and fitting that this spot will forever carry his name.
HOW? We hope to raise $150K in support of the naming opportunity from Brewster’s larger community of former and current parents, alumni, and friends of the school.
A SPACE OF HONOR
This proposed seating area within the terrace honoring Peter Mann will provide a relaxing space to gather as a group with food from the cafe, a comfortable spot to cheer on your favorite Brewster team, or a place to contemplate the most amazing sunsets over Lake Winnipesaukee. It will be a profound space for such an iconic presence at Brewster.
Mr. Mann has been the most consistent aspect of my time at Brewster. He’s been there for the lows of a departed best friend and the highs of National Honor Society induction. The wisdom Mr. Mann has offered along the way, amplified by his caring nature, a hint of facetiousness, and lots of trips to Morrisseys, has played a significant role in shaping me into the man I am today.
