January 4, 2011 |

\n

Nancy Peterson, a longtime member of the Davis High Blue and White Foundation, has been named that organization\’s president, it was announced by outgoing chief Rochelle Swanson.

\n

The Foundation, creators of the school\’s Hall of Fame and the key group in putting together and executing the former stadium project (now Ron & Mary Brown Stadium), also named Will Arnold as vice president and Miriam Fisk as secretary. Cathe Richardson continues as treasurer.

\n

“I hope I can live up to the standards set by the BWF presidents before me,” Peterson said Tuesday.

\n

Nancy and Rob Peterson have three children, Emma (a ninth-grader at Harper Junior High), Reese (a seven-grade student at Davis Waldorf) and Dane (a fourth-grader at Montgomery Elementary).

\n

Rob Peterson is an orthopedic surgeon with practices in Davis and Vacaville. He also serves as the Blue Devils\’ football team doctor.

\n

A native of New York City, Peterson came to Davis with her family in 1998. A graduate of Princeton (where she played volleyball), Peterson assisted DHS net coach Leigh Whitmire this fall.

\n

“Rochelle Swanson has been instrumental to the success of Blue and White\’s \’Back on Track\’ campaign,” Peterson explained.

\n

In a note to Swanson — elected in June to the Davis City Council — schools Superintendent Winfred Roberson thanked the outgoing president for her efforts:

\n

“It\’s been a pleasure to work with (Rochelle) during (her) term as president. DJUSD looks forward to a continuing partnership with B and W and its new officers, Nancy, Will and Miriam. Thanks for your commitment and contribution to the students.”

\n

Swanson weighed in on the new board and her time as president …

\n

“Nancy is a wonderful asset to Blue and White and will be a great leader as we move forward. I know I am excited to enjoy the upcoming year as board member.

\n

“I want to thank all of you — Arnold, Peterson, Fisk and Richardson — for making my term as

\n

president a fun and rewarding year. I am grateful for the wonderful partnerships and shared commitment to our kids and community.”

\n

Swanson says she will continue to oversee and be lead board member for the stadium project.
