Campaign Leadership

“The educational marketplace is more dynamic and competitive than ever before. Achieving our goal will allow us to strengthen valuable assets while preserving Asheville School’s signature attributes,” says Campaign Chair, Marshall Bassett 1972.

“The goal is bold, but so is our vision.”

Marshall T. Bassett 1972

Bassett has been a dedicated supporter and steward of Asheville School’s mission for more than 35 years. 

In addition to his current roles as At the Threshold Campaign Chair and Board Treasurer, Bassett has championed numerous philanthropic initiatives over the years, among them the construction of the Vandergrift Science Center, the Centennial Capital Fund, the Building Renovation Fund and the Hollandsworth-Maggart Preservation Society Fund.

In 2016, Marshall and his wife Mary made one of the first leadership gifts to the At the Threshold campaign—this time, supporting the Archibald R. Montgomery IV and Phyllis Montgomery Scholarship Fund.

Bassett is a retired Senior Vice President and Chief Investment Officer for Delaware Investments and currently resides in Beaufort, SC.
