Two Stuart High School Students Named

2015 National Merit Semifinalists

 

Two Stuart High School (SHS) seniors, Theodore Lebryk and Adam Thomas, have been named semifinalists by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) for 2015.

Approximately 16,000 high school seniors were named National Merit Scholarship semifinalists for 2015.  More than 1.4 million juniors entered the 2015 National Merit program by taking the 2013 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®), which serves as the initial screen of program entrants.  The nationwide pool of semifinalists, which represents less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest scoring entrants in each state.  

Three types of Merit Scholarship awards will be offered in 2015:  National Merit $2,500 scholarships, corporate-sponsored scholarships, and college-sponsored scholarships.

 

We are extremely proud of Theodore and Adam who exemplify our Raider spirit!!!

CLASS OF '79 REUNION WEEKEND  -

MAKE PLANS TO COME NOW!

Our 35th high school reunion is a only little over two months away(October 17th-19th)! The reunion committee has been working hard to make arrangements for a fun filled weekend. The events begin on Friday with the Stuart Homecoming Parade, followed by the Homecoming football game. After the game, our own Nancy(Clary) Webb has coordinated a gathering at Ireland's Four Provinces Restaurant in Falls Church(http://4psva.com/). Class of 79's Scott Scherbenske has been in touch with Top Golf (http://topgolf.com/us/alexandria/) for the Saturday afternoon golfing event. This event is fun for all (even if you aren't a real golfer). We are looking into having 3 hours of golf combined with a lunch buffet. The cost would be approximately $55.00 per person. From what I understand this is a great deal considering what 18 holes of traditional golf costs. There is also a pay-per-drink bar available for anyone who wants to get a jump on things prior to the evening extravaganza! We do need you to RSVP for this event to know how many to plan for. Please email me by August 22nd if you are interested. Ferdie A., Bobby M., Scott S., are already on the reservation list!

If you need lodging accommodations, Class of 79's Carol (Doub) Kelly and Linda (Purnell) Malone has coordinated with the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church and arranged for a block of rooms. The phone number to call is 1-800-228-9290 and guests can ask for the "JEB Stuart 35th HS Reunion room block." If you would like to book online through the hotel's web site, you should go to the following link and type in the "Group Code" JEBJEBA in the group code box. - http://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/wasfp-fairview-park-marriott/ .

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or want to be on the list for Top Golf!

Looking forward to celebrating 35 years since our time together at Stuart! Please forward this information to anyone from our class who you are in contact with in case I don't have current emails or they aren’t on FB.

Take Care,

Tina (Holeman) Johnson

SHINE ON CASEY

Casey was an indomitable spirit, full of sweetness, wit, intelligence and beauty.In a life too short, Casey Schulman left a remarkable imprint. At the age of 22, on her last day of a study abroad program, Casey was killed while on a snorkeling trip.

Ever since she was a young girl growing up in Falls Church, VA, Casey had a curiosity about the world and reached out to others in a caring manner. Throughout her life, she listened to others with genuine interest. At all stages, Casey had a smile and a happiness that touched us all very deeply and made us all smile!

Casey is remembered by many of her teachers at JEB Stuart and UVA as “the student whom you dream of” –filled with a curiosity and a determination to do well and to help others with the gifts that she was given. She was a dedicated Foreign Affairs major at UVA, taking a particular interest in the broader world around her.It didn’t matter if someone spoke the same language; there wasn’t a person who met Casey, who didn’t become her friend. As her sister, Alli commented, “How does someone have so much fun, work so hard, find so much success and remain so happy all at the same time? I know that Casey would be thrilled to see the impact that she has made on all of us. She never wanted anything more than she wanted everyone to live and enjoy the moment, like she did.”

In June 2014, a $20,000 Casey Schulman Foundation scholarship was awarded to a graduating senior from JEB Stuart High School.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Casey Schulman Foundation which supports deserving students who, like Casey, are dedicated to improving the lives of others.

Here's some recent news about fundraising efforts on behalf of the Casey Schulman Foundation:

From a Sleepy Hollow Bath and Racquet newsletter:

As many of you know, on Friday, July 18th and on Sunday, July 20th the swim team hosted a wildly successful, and super fun swim-a-thon in support of the Casey Schulman Foundation. The foundation provides financial support to deserving students who, like Casey, are dedicated to improving the lives of others.

Swim team members and swim team alumni swam on Friday, and here are the results:  7,946 laps (133 miles) swum!  More than 75% of the swim team participated and approximately 15 alumni joined the Seals to swim.

On Sunday morning, the SHBR adult swim community, and some former SHBR members swam , and here are the results:  975 laps (32.5 miles) swum.  Overall, 185 swimmers participated in the swim-a-thon events on Friday and Sunday.

We are thrilled to report that the Swim-a-Thon raised almost $12,000!  At the swim team awards picnic on July 26th, the SHBR Seals were honored and proud to present Margo and Dave Schulman with a check for $11,913 for the Casey Schulman Foundation.  This exceeded the goal of $7,000, so the swim team and the SHBR community deserves a huge THANK YOU for your generosity and community spirit.  SHINE ON!

From the Barcroft Woods listserve:
 
I am helping to organize the Second Annual "Shine on Casey" Golf Tournament.   This year's tournament will be held on Monday, September 29, 2014 at The 1757 Golf Club in Dulles, VA.  Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Casey Schulman Foundation which supports deserving students who, like Casey, are dedicated to improving the lives of others.  In fact, in June 2014, a $20,000 Casey Schulman Foundation scholarship was awarded to a graduating senior from JEB Stuart High School. 

We are asking if you may be interested in attending, or supporting the event this year with a sponsorship or  and auction item.

Neil Herron

Lina Maria Lenis Gonzalez
J.E.B. Stuart High School

School counselor Virginia Justis remembers being caught by surprise when Lina Maria Lenis Gonzalez, then a sophomore, stopped by the office to introduce herself and spell out her personal goals. “She completely took the initiative,” Justis says. “[She] is a mover and a shaker…who lives by the motto of leaving a place better than you found it.”

Last year, Gonzalez completed a 14-week internship program at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum—an experience that deepened her perspective on issues in her school and community. “In my school, in every school, there is bullying,” the 17-year-old observes. “So I try to raise awareness about bullying and any type of oppression that can lead to problems in society.”

Through her school’s Key Club, a service program she helped establish in 2012, Gonzalez has organized activities ranging from soup kitchen visits to shoe drives that support poor families in Honduras. She served as junior class treasurer, plays for the varsity field hockey team, volunteers as a Spanish tutor, and holds a seat on the Fairfax County Public Schools Student Advisory Council. She also devotes time to the Leadership Council for the school board’s College Partnership Program, which helps minority and first-generation students of immigrant families get into college. (She moved to the U.S. from Colombia at age 5 with her parents, Hector Lenis and Liliana Gonzalez.)

Now a rising senior, Gonzalez plans to study political science in college, attend law school, work as a lawyer and ultimately run for governor. “I would like to get that education to make sure that if one day I have the opportunity to make laws, they can be effective and efficient to truly make a change in the community,” says the teen.

In the meantime, the straight-A student is on a path to earn an International Baccalaureate Diploma. She credits her mom as the inspiration behind her work ethic. “She is the hardest-working person I have ever met,” Gonzalez says. “[She] inspires me to make positive changes so other students will grow up and succeed, and won’t have to work as hard as my mother [does] to support their families.”
