Remembering Watts Wacker

It’s with great sadness that we inform everyone of Watts Wacker’s passing. He was a truly brilliant futurist, wizard, scholar, mentor and friend who always knew how to tell an inspiring story or break into spontaneous recitations that fit perfectly with the moment. 

One of the guiding values of Watts’ life and career was to challenge convention in considering the future, and this is at the heart of the work done at HOLA.  The students’ unique life experiences position them to become the out-of-the-box thinkers and wizards of the future.

To help carry on his legacy to future generations, Watts’ family and friends have partnered with HOLA to establish the Watts Wacker Memorial Fund.  Contributions will provide HOLA students with the support they need to access secondary education and speak their truth about what new methods, metrics and tools will be needed in our future together as a society.

Please indicate that your gift is in memory of Watts Wacker in the "Additional Comments" box.
