When Becca Davison’s daughter was born in 2015, Becca and her mom invented a tool to make it easier to unbuckle kids’ car seats. In 2020, they appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank (along with Becca’s 3-year-old daughter) and received offers from all 5 sharks for their business, UnbuckleMe.

Alexandra and Brady met in Penny Jackson’s class when they were in eighth grade; they married in 2002. Years later, in a full-circle moment, they chose to send their sons Thomson ’20 and Truett ’22 to ROBS. “To me, ROBS is family,” Brady says. “The intimacy of the School and the sense of community were a very special way to grow up.”  When the time came for Thomson and Truett to choose a high school, they took the road less travelled and opted for boarding school. Both attend The Taft School in Connecticut. The Knights credit their sons’ confidence and ability to thrive away from home to the solid foundation they gained at ROBS.
