  • Fourth Form Hosts Special Olympics Event

    Woodberry Forest School and the fourth form hosted a sports festival for Virginia Special Olympics on April 26, 2015. Despite dreary weather, over a hundred athletes and their families, friends, caregivers, and coaches enjoyed an excellent day competing in swimming and track and field.

    "Those who saw any aspect of the event saw Woodberry at its finest," said Henry Heil, Woodberry's assistant dean of students and the event's organizer. "There were lots of compliments about our facilities and our willingness to host the event. But the most meaningful comments I heard were about those boys and faculty who interacted with the athletes." The competition was staffed entirely by Woodberry's sophomore class; the boys cooked, parked cars, timed races, and got to know the athletes.

  • Assistant Headmaster for Admissions and College Counseling Appointed

    Woodberry Forest School will welcome Scott Schamberger as assistant headmaster for admissions and college counseling on July 1, 2015. In this new senior administrative position, Scott will oversee our relationship with our students and their families beginning with their early interest in the school and continuing through their admission, and enrollment, and college matriculation.

    “This is a very important position for Woodberry Forest,” said Headmaster Byron Hulsey ’86. “We mounted a very competitive search, and Scott emerged as the candidate with the experience, enthusiasm, and personality to make the most of this opportunity. I am excited to work with him on behalf of the boys already at Woodberry and those who will join us in the years to come.”

    Scott comes to the Forest from Randolph School in Huntsville, Alabama, where, as director of institutional advancement, he is responsible for admissions, development, communications, and parent and alumni relations. Before joining the Randolph faculty five years ago, he worked at Emory University for ten years, primarily in the office of undergraduate admission; he concluded his service there as associate dean of admission operations. Scott earned a BS in biology from Emory University and an MEd in educational administration and policy from the University of Georgia. He is currently working toward earning a PhD in educational policy studies from Georgia State University. He and his wife, Tracy, have a daughter and are expecting their second child in September.

    Scott will join the faculty as Harrison Stuart ’98, Woodberry’s assistant headmaster and director of admissions, departs to become founding head of the new Episcopal School of Nashville. Harrison has been a member of the Woodberry faculty since 2010.
