Seniors Leland Burke of Upperville, VA; Mary Park Durham of Dallas, TX; and Isabella Zimmerman of Fairfax, VA, were elected to the national high school honor society, which is modeled on the collegiate Phi Beta Kappa. Burke, Durham, and Zimmerman join classmates Emily Dietz (Unionville, PA), Lindy Davenport (Berryville, VA), and Lindsay Woods (Philomont, VA), who had the special distinction of being selected as juniors last year.
Three members of this year’s junior class earned that extraordinary honor: Melanie Fann of Purcellville, VA, and international students Emma Cao (Nanjing, China) and Yiming Zhao (Qingdao, China).
In addition, Maria Evans, Ph.D, who chairs Foxcroft’s STEM Department, was named. She becomes the seventh faculty member of the Foxcroft chapter, joining Mohler, a math teacher, Head of School Cathy McGehee, Academic Dean Courtney Ulmer, Athletic Director Michelle Woodruff, and faculty members Lindsey Bowser and Alex Northrup.
