Our 2007 Capital Campaign

In January, 2007, Woodlawn announced its first-ever capital campaign with the goal of funding two new buildings, an upper school classroom building and a gymnasium.  We broke ground on the project in May of 2007, and the buildings were completed in August, 2008.

During the course of this capital campaign, we completed a series of improvements, all of which were designed to be compatible with the existing facilities on Woodlawn’s campus, including the 170-year-old Stinson Hall. Donors were asked to make pledges toward the campaign to be fulfilled over the following 3 years. This project included:

In September, 2008, the upper school classroom building was dedicated as Woods Hall, in memory of James Woods, a Davidson resident who was killed in action during the Vietnam War.  His brother, John Woods, the current mayor of Davidson, along with several other family members, attended the ceremony.
