Thayer Coburn – Board Member
The proud parent of a son in Grade 4, Thayer Coburn lives in Whitewater with his wife Anne and their two children (plus dogs, cats, horses, chickens, ducks and a guinea pig). Thayer is part-owner of his family’s 4th-generation wholesale distribution business, The Coburn Company, Inc., where he serves as the CEO and Director of Operations. He is also a co-founder of Second Salem Brewing Company, a nanobrewery in Whitewater. A former opera singer, Thayer especially appreciates the role that music plays in the Waldorf curriculum. On the board, he hopes to fortify the things that make PHWS unique, and make Waldorf education available to as many families as possible.
