Gary Goldstein (Wayne Thomas/Oak Terrace/Northwood) is a parent volunteer who ran the chess program at Wayne Thomas during the 2007-2008 school year, and now will run the combined program. His son Caleb is now a 6th grader at Northwood. Gary owns a nature audio recording company specializing in cutting-edge recording techniques and spends many weekends in the woods and other natural settings. He is a founding member of our district-wide chess committee and is committed to promoting chess to the entire Highland Park community. He’s proof that you do not need to be a chess expert to be an effective volunteer. We hope other parents will take his example and join the effort.
