The Family of William Brod
This induction in memory of William Brod and his entire family would make Mr. Russell Ranney very proud. Mr. Brod suggested to Mr. Ranney that in order to be competitive with other private schools, Ranney School needed to develop an athletic department. With this advice, Mr. Ranney built what is now referred to as the Gerhard Pavilion for Athletics (GPA) building, and honored Mr. Brod for all he had done by naming it the “Brod Building.” Mr. Brod continued to serve as indispensable role as the advocate for the creation of the athletic program and athletic complex. Mr. Brod’s vision provides all present day athletes a program that strives for excellence by creating an environment that unites academic excellence with achievement in athletic competition, sportsmanship, commitment and dedication.
