  • Class of 2019: Grant Shepherd

    Mrs. Pam Zettervall, Lower School Faculty
    “You got to live and learn and make mistakes to be a man.” ~ Future

    If you have ever researched Sewanee- The University of the South, they say their students’ experiences stretch further & reach higher than their boundaries can contain. 

    This has always been the case with Grant Shephard. His boundaries are limitless and he has experienced as much life as people twice his age. I have heard him touted by his peers as one of the smartest kids they know or even better, unmotivated genius. As I mentioned this to him, in perfect Grant form, he responded humbly. Nah.

  • Class of 2019: Gabrielle Short

    Mrs. Janine Mobley-Burke, Upper School English
    Genuine. Passionate. Determined. Resilient. Special. When asked what word comes to mind when they think of Gabrielle Short, this is how her teachers describe her. Scott McGraw, her AP Government teacher said “the one word that comes to my mind when I think of her character is trustworthy. If she says, she will be there, she will. If she says she read the book, she read it. I have never heard her say a bad word about anyone, nor have I ever heard anyone say a bad word about her. She is the kind of person who, quietly, makes her community a better place by acting as a role model for her peers.”

  • Class of 2019: Wouter Hekking

    Mrs. Tina Howard, Perry Library Faculty
    Wouter is known around our campus as being a friendly, kind student. He is always willing to help, even joining in to assist with the Writing Center when that was needed, although English is his second language. It seems like he has been a valued part of our community for much longer than he has!

  • Class of 2019: Martin Salzberg

    Mr. Kevin Shain, Director of Technology and Security Systems
    In the fall, Martin Salzberg will be enrolling at the University of Virginia. Martin said that attending UVA seemed like a natural decision for him. This is due to the fact that both of his parents attended UVA and he has lived there for a few weeks at a time. UVA just seemed like the right fit for him. In addition to UVA, Martin applied to a total of 8 schools and visited 6 of those campuses. Some of the other schools he considered were Virginia Tech, George Mason, William and Mary, and Cal Poly.

  • Class of 2019: Jillian Ehrenzeller

    Mrs. Deanna Thompson, Admissions Associate
    Do not underestimate Jillian Ehrenzeller. She might seem quiet and reserved on CHC’s campus, but she is a powerhouse in the classroom and is an incredible, accomplished equestrian.

    Jillian has been such a warm and welcoming presence at CHC. She began her Dolphin journey in Kindergarten and speaks fondly of Mrs. Armstrong, Jillian’s former teacher. “Mrs. Armstrong has a hug for me every time I see her.” She smiles big as she fondly recalls her Lower School days.

Born in the Rockies, Tucker is excited to be the first CHC student to attend CSU and he will leave behind a tradition of excellence when he leaves us this June.

  • Class of 2019: George Selamaj

    Mr. Scott McGraw, Upper School History Teacher
    As a three time varsity soccer letterman, three time TCIS champion, and two-time Division 1 state champion, George Selamaj has been a huge asset to the Cape Henry soccer program for the last three years. But when asked to describe George as a player, Cape Henry coach Dave Brun did not describe him as the best athlete on the field. Instead he said this: “Too often in sports, we get fixated on the biggest, fastest, strongest, when the truth is, some people are just better at playing the game than everyone else is. George is one of those people.”
