It is with deep sadness that the Board of Trustees of Washington College Academy announces the passing of Dr. Robert Orr, WCA president in an automobile accident on June 23. Dr. Orr has been an ardent supporter and leader for the school for many years and had touched the lives of so many people. He was our leader and he will be missed.
