Azam Dawood '89
Working with former long-time faculty member Derek Poon and current faculty member Andrew MacDougall, Azam has worked passionately as an assistant coach for the varsity tennis team for more than 12 years. He’s the perfect example of finding a niche in which he can share an interest, then volunteering to the maximum. Finding many hours to dedicate each season, he supports the boys by attending practices and matches, even going with the team on its annual trip to the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey.
“Azam knows the game extremely well and adds good insight for the players in terms of technical skills and tactical strategies,” says his nomination. Moreover, Dawood has also found time to serve as a grade rep, a Prep Parents’ Organization volunteer and a Common Ties mentor.
Azam is an Old Boy and the parent of Zach ’19 and Ethan ’22.
