  • Student Reflections: The American Civil Rights Nexus Trip

    by Madisen Patrick '19
    “If we have the courage and tenacity of our forebears, who stood firmly like a rock against the lash of slavery, we shall find a way to do for our day what they did for theirs” - Mary McLeod Bethune An enormous United States Flag flew over a rest stop in South Carolina. So big, that as a group we all stopped in our steps to stare and watch the win whip it back and forth. The flag was capable of embracing and engulfing the fifteen of us multiple times. We looked up at the flag in comfort and honor, but the flag’s shadow did not foreshadow for us how small that flag reached around our ancestors. Our ancestors that had no rights; cast as outsiders with no other option but to stand up in the red, white, and blue to make the land of the free, free for me.

  • Class of 2019: James Tyler

    by Mrs. Brooke Hummel, Assistant Head of School and Director of Enrollment Management and Financial Aid
    “James Tyler has a big brain!”

    This is possibly the earliest recorded quote regarding the one and only, Mr. James Tyler. Noted by fellow classmate Colin Sharp when they were just two years old in the same day care classroom, James has demonstrated he has the capacity to solve problems beyond what many of us might imagine possible.

  • Class of 2019: Morgan Jones

    by Mr. Brian T. Walker '95, Director of Marketing and Publications
    A strong, confident young woman walks across the stage at Graduation to accept honor and praise for her work and accomplishments. But while many may be focusing on that single moment in time and applauding a job well done, senior Morgan Jones, and those closest to her, reflect on the how one single decision back in 2015 would change her life for years to come.

  • Class of 2019: Stock Watson

    by Mrs. Leigh Anne Clay, Middle School English and Upper School Journalism Teacher
    Over the past five years, many people in the CHC community have witnessed the impressive evolution of Stock Watson – from uncertain and introspective to confident and well-rounded.  His Biology teacher, Mr. Chris Souther, shared his thoughts of how Stock changed during 9th grade and beyond, “Stock started slow and was unsure of his place in the Upper School. Over time, he became more confident and by the end of his freshman year, he was one of my top students. It is so wonderful to see how far he has come, in both his maturity and his confidence since those early days in Biology.”

  • Class of 2019: Colin Sharp

    by Mrs. Brooke Hummel, Assistant Head of School and Director of Enrollment Management and Financial Aid
    Sitting across from a six-year old Colin Sharp, I shared this iconic line. As his first grade teacher at Saint Patrick Catholic School, I was trying to appeal to his superhero loving self and help him to understand his ability to influence.

    Colin and I had just had a conversation about Pokemon cards and that they were only permitted during recess or after school. I issued my final warning. “If I see them again during reading groups, they will belong to me until June.”

  • Class of 2019: Grace Fluharty

    by Mrs. Alison Bugg, Nexus Operations Manager
    Have you ever had one of those moments where something strikes you a certain way, and it offers you a peek into the future?  One of those moments where you get a glimpse of what might be, or better yet, what will be?

    For me, one of those moments was the Saturday that Grace Fluharty auditioned for Cape Henry Collegiate’s production of “Shrek: The Musical.”  Up until that point, I had primarily known Grace from my work with her as a Global Scholar, and as the daughter of two of my very good friends.  I knew she was a kind person, a stellar student, and that she was very interested in theater.

  • Class of 2019: Cam Ciolfi

    by Ms. Ashleigh Cake, Middle School Science
    I first met Cameron  “Cam” Ciolfi on the maiden voyage of Little Nexus back in June of 2012.  He was one of two boys on the trip and was such a gentleman. I remember as Mrs. Julie Scherrer made fabulous meals, Cam was always around offering to help clean- up and talk with the adults. While only a rising 6th grader, he offered to help carry everything and made Mrs. Hayes and I excited to have him as a Middle Schooler in the Fall. Our greatest memory of him on this trip was his quest for knowledge and ability to share information.  Whether going to the Turtle Hospital or the Dolphin Research Center or Snorkeling at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park , Cam read everything, listened and shared his knowledge with us all. He loved learning about the animals and how we are trying to protect them.
