Except for a one-year break, Larry Canner was a Waldorf parent continuously from 1989 to 2008. His step-daughter, Maia Whitner, attended 3rd through 8th grade, graduating in 1995. His daughter Emily Canner attended the Children's Garden for three years, and graduated from the 8th grade in 2008. Larry has been an independent professional photographer since 1986. He completed numerous volunteer photography assignments for WSB over the years, including all of the major festivals and events as well as photos for print ads, viewbooks and brochures. (Full disclosure—he was paid by the school to do a brochure in 1987, before he was a WSB parent. He was also paid $500 for two photo shoots approximately three times in the 1998–2000 period.) He organized several photo portrait fundraisers in the 1990s and early 2000s, and again in 2007 and 2008 along with another parent photographer. He served on the Enrollment Committee during the early 2000’s and the Public Relations Committee for year or two after that.
