• Carrie and Ken Somberg

    Carrie and Ken Somberg joined the Newark Academy community when their sons, Andrew ’07 and then Adam ’10, started middle school. One of the first events they attended was the dedication of the Simon Family Field House, which set the stage for their NA relationship. “We saw that people give back to the school, even if they aren’t alumni themselves,” Carrie says. She has contributed her time as Newark Academy Parents Association president and trustee and a Rise Academy tutor. As co-chairs of the Rise & Flourish campaign’s alumni parents committee, Carrie and Ken encourage fellow parents to reflect on their children’s NA experiences and to support the school for future generations. The Sombergs are proud that their sons are maintaining their own NA connections; while Adam is still attending Rice University, Andrew serves on the Newark Academy Alumni Board of Governors.
