  • Local Newspaper Features Sterling Street ’14

    The Charlottesville Daily Progress featured Sterling Street ’14 in its July 28, 2014, edition. Sterling, who underwent brain surgery during the winter of his senior year at Woodberry Forest School, is at the University of Virginia Hospital, this time as an observer. The Duluth, Georgia, resident has been shadowing Dr. Kenneth C. Liu, one of the neurosurgeons who operated on him, learning more about his chosen career as a brain surgeon.

  • Physics Teachers Gather at the Forest

    Woodberry Forest science department chair Greg Jacobs hosted ten physics teachers from public and independent schools around the East for a three-day Physics Open Lab, July 27 - 29, 2014, in the Manning Family Science Building.

    Greg offered, among other things, tips for speeding grading, ideas for inexpensive lab equipment, and discussions of curriculum goals for differing levels of physics courses. The teachers participated in a mock conceptual physics class, where they experienced the same daily procedures Greg's third formers follow: They wrote out a physics concept prediction, checked it with Greg, tested it with a toy cart on a track, and measured results with a Vernier sensor and LabQuest handheld device.

    The 2014 Open Lab was sponsored by the Woodberry Forest School Science Department.

  • Alumni Musicians Perform Together

    Three Woodberry Forest alumni -- Bobby Houck ’83, Duke Merrick ’72, and Peyton Tochterman ’96 -- took the stage at the State Theatre in downtown Culpeper, Virginia, on July 24, 2014. The audience was peppered with members of the Woodberry Forest community, including alums John Gillespie ’85, Kav Gillespie ’14, Anna Grey Hogan ’14, and Jack Rhoades ’66. The guests enjoyed a pre-show barbecue dinner with band members in the beautifully renovated historic theatre.

    The concert opened with an acoustic set by Peyton, followed by a full set by Bobby and his band the Blue Dogs. Duke, in spite of a recent copperhead bite to his left hand, joined the Blue Dogs to perform a few original and standard songs. The three closed the show together with a rendition of "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain."
