Order of the Tower

The Order of the Tower recognizes alumni, teachers, or friends for outstanding service to The Pennington School or to the wider community.

2018 Recipients

The 2018 recipients are Mr. and Mrs. Joseph L. Wesley Sr., whose generosity, through the Joseph and Marion Wesley Family Foundation, has bestowed the second largest gift ever given to The Pennington School by one family, and the largest gift ever given by grandparents. All ten of the Wesleys’ grandchildren attended The Pennington School.

Joseph L. Wesley Sr. is the visionary founder of the AmQuip Corporation, “The Crane People,” now known as AmQuip Crane Rental LLC, a leading provider of crane rental equipment and related services in the United States, where Joseph Wesley continues to remain active as a member of its Board of Managers.
