Ed and Marta Han
Since joining Campbell Hall in 2016, Ed and Marta Han, parents of Ethan ’27 and Martin ’29, have been active members of the school community.
Marta has been a regular volunteer with the elementary and middle schools including two stints as class coordinator. As a certified yoga instructor, Marta has also provided weekly yoga classes to CH faculty and staff for several years. Ed has served on the CH Board of Directors since 2017, and is now taking on the role of Co-Chair. At different points during his tenure on the Board, he has been a member of various committees including Executive, Governance, Advancement, and Finance and has served as Chair of the DEIJ Task Force.
Campbell Hall’s bold and innovative plans to transform the campus sparked the imagination of Ed and Marta from the outset. So many aspects of the project resonated for them. The Holiday Center will revitalize the heart of campus, creating a nature-filled open green space, free of cars, in an area that is currently dominated by parking and traffic. The construction of a new significantly larger dining complex will provide a greater variety of delicious and healthy food options for students as well as more spacious and comfortable areas for students to eat, relax, and congregate. The new best-in-class gymnasium, together with Garver Gymnasium, will greatly increase access to space for practices and games for all grades.
“Campbell Hall is an amazing school that lives out its mission every day,” says Ed. “This upcoming campus transformation is a testament to the importance our school places on student health and wellness.”
Ed serves as a co-chair of the Capital Campaign Steering Committee, and together Ed and Marta have generously committed $1 million for the construction of a state-of-the-art fitness center within The Holiday Center that will be named in their honor. The fitness center and the yoga/Pilates studio will give students access to best-in-class facilities and equipment to train, condition, and enhance mobility and flexibility. As Marta says, “We are tremendously excited to help create a space dedicated to fitness for all students, whether you’re an elite athlete training for a particular sport or a student focused on improving your personal fitness as part of a healthy lifestyle.”
Ed and Marta have prioritized being involved in The Holiday Center project because it’s a way to continue Campbell Hall’s long established tradition of giving back. As Ed explains: “Today, our kids can use spaces like Garver Gymnasium and the Spielberg Family Arts and Education Center because of the generosity and work of so many unsung heroes who came before us and made those facilities possible. I think we now have the opportunity to return the favor, to give back not only for current students but to help future Campbell Hall generations. We hope that others will join us in supporting The Holiday Center.”
