  • Golf Course Footbridge Dedicated

    Bill Goetzenberger ’79 honored Tom Bond, his Woodberry adviser, and those of his sons, Ryan ’14 and Will ’17, by donating a beautiful stone footbridge crossing a small stream near the seventh hole of the Woodberry Forest Golf Course.

    The Thomas D. Bond Footbridge, dedicated in a ceremony on August 29, 2015, was constructed by Bill's construction company, Buchanan Construction, in Bethesda. Tom taught Spanish and French and coached golf at Woodberry from 1970 to 2001. He received the Distinguished Service Award in 2001 upon his retirement.

    Headmaster Byron Hulsey ’86, members of the golf coaching staff, and representatives of the Woodberry Forest Golf Club were on hand to thank the Goetzenbergers for their gift on behalf of the many golfers who use the course.

  • Woodberry Alums Bring Technology to Tanzanian Hospital

    Ross Winston ’15 and Jannis Stöter ’16 traveled to Tanzania this summer to set up a computer network and electronic medical record system at St. Thomas Medical Centre in Arusha. Ross gained experience during the summer of 2014 when Woodberry’s Noland Fellowship funded his service trip to Ghana where he established an internet-connected computer lab in a small school.

    This summer Ross and Jannis, who spent a year at Woodberry as a German exchange student, set up equipment donated by Woodberry and Trinity Episcopal School in Charlotte, North Carolina. They partnered with doctors at the University of Virginia Health System and Duke Global Health Institute.

    When they arrived in Tanzania, the pair found the hospital to be overwhelmed by thousands of paper files. “Within nine days, we ran network cable throughout the entire hospital, installed and configured six computers, and equipped it with a cloud-based system for electronic medical records,” said Jannis. Before departing Tanzania, they also upgraded computer facilities at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center in Moshi.

    They credit their Woodberry bond with helping them succeed in challenging circumstances. “Ross and I worked hand-in-hand and were able to rely on each other,” said Jannis.
