James Combs ’96

As a 1996 graduate and Pace Academy Lifer, I can vividly remember starting my Pre-First year in the fall of 1983. This was the year the then-new Lower School building opened on the Pace campus. Looking back, I realize how fortunate I was to spend seven important years of my life in the Lower School with its nurturing staff.

 With our daughter, Caroline Combs ’32, going into the second grade, my wife [Julia Combs] and I want to give her the same opportunity in what will be an even better facility for her and her classmates to learn, thrive and enjoy all the Pace experience brings.
