President’s Message Convocation Address, August 27th, 2012

Dr. Michael D. Groves, President

Following is the text of Dr. Groves’ Convocation Address to the school community. A few days prior to your arrival on the campus of Oak Hill Academy our faculty and staff spend an intensive period of orientation with one another, preparing. We always welcome new members to our community, so it is important for all of us to begin forming our team. Yet, our larger goal is simply to prepare. And we are preparing for … you, the students. We prepare in two ways. First, we get our buildings and facilities ready. We order uniforms and textbooks; we ready syllabi, course outlines, and lesson plans. The second area of preparation is slightly more emotional than physical; it involves the faculty and staff looking inward, seeking inspiration and motivation. The first kind of preparation—getting buildings and “stuff” ready is far easier than the second. For, how does one really get ready for the arrival of about 150 adolescents, all of whom will be living together (with us), for the next nine months? And keep in mind, we shall not simply be sharing a common living space and participating in casual recreational activities and campfires. This is not summer camp or basketball camp or equestrian camp. We are here, after all, to go to school. This is Oak Hill Academy, beginning today our 134th year. Please know my expectations are high. My expectations are high for our school, for the faculty and staff—and my expectations will be high for you. If you are new to our community, our expectations here are likely going to be significantly higher for you than at your previous school. If you are a returning student, my expectations will be higher for you this year than last. I say often that I believe strongly in the old-fashioned tenets of hard work, discipline, and respect. Lives can be changed and futures can be secured by focusing upon simple and time-honored basics, because in small matters, we build relationships with one another, we form a community, and we grow. And so, last week, we all gathered prior to your arrival, preparing for you. Every OHA employee meets in this chapel, sitting in the seats where you are right now. I step to this podium, read aloud the Oak Hill Academy mission statement, offer a prayer, and then I speak. What can I possibly say to motivate and inspire the faculty and staff? This particular setting I am describing is unique. It is not like I am an army general sending his troops out to the battlefield to die, giving them their final marching orders. Nor is it like a coach giving a pregame pep talk to his team before the first game of the season. We are setting the tone for an entire year. So, what exactly did I say some seven days ago? I talked a bit about commitment, for that is the theme for our year together. You are going to hear that term a lot. But I added another word to what I expect from the faculty and staff: I spoke to them about “genuine commitment.” In fact, in my thirty minute speech,

I used those two words over 170 times, repeating them again and again … “it will take genuine commitment; our students deserve nothing less from us than genuine commitment.” At the conclusion of the speech, I asked for the faculty and staff to provide for me a sign, perhaps an iconic image or a “pose” that represents the Oak Hill Academy mission and the genuine commitment of the faculty and staff. I cited a few current examples … like Usain Bolt’s “Spanish Arrow” that we witnessed in the Olympics, or college football’s “The Heisman” pose, or “Tebowing.” I also demonstrated a few classic examples of an iconic pose, like the famous statue of “The Thinker.” Ultimately, the faculty and staff were asked to uncover for themselves an image that captures the essence of the OHA Mission and our genuine commitment to you. I want to share with you what four different groups of the faculty and staff envisioned as their Oak Hill Academy “iconic pose.” (1) A group of adults, joined together in commitment to one another, like a team in a huddle, raising their fingers, saying “Oak Hill,” (2) a group of adults physically holding a student aloft, carrying them forward through the rough times toward a bright future; (3) a group of adults displaying the unique blend of structure and nurture that is found here at OHA, patting kids on the back, and giving them “a kick” in the seat, encouraging students beyond a comfortable malaise; and, (4) a group of faculty and staff, proudly joining with a student on graduation day, holding that cherished high school diploma, taking photos with proud parents. On this day, August 27, 2012, Convocation Day at Oak Hill Academy, such genuine commitment awaits you here on this campus. The journey will sometimes be difficult; all meaningful journeys have very real challenges. And, yes, the journey will certainly be filled with high expectations. Yet always know this: A quality group of people are surrounding you here in this school. They are supporting you—perhaps sometimes correcting you—yet always encouraging you to be your very best. This group of people exhibit nothing less than genuine commitment to our school, and, most particularly, to you. What an incredible opportunity we all have before us this year. We shall begin this journey right here, right now, together. The Chiming of the Academy Bell Welcome to Oak Hill Academy; Year 134 has begun. Follow Dr. Groves on Twitter @DrGrovesOHA


134 School Year Begins! th

On Monday morning, August 27, the original school bell chimed as Oak Hill Academy officially began its 134th academic year. With this new beginning comes the anticipation of a successful year by students and faculty alike. This year our diverse group of students comes to us from 25 states, the District of Columbia, and 18 foreign countries. All have come together to create our unique community on “the hill� where we will strive to provide a quality education for all who come our way. Amid all of the hustle and bustle of unpacking, finding room assignments, getting class schedules, and picking up supplies and uniforms, a new sense of independence is discovered; new friendships are created; old friendships are rekindled; and another chapter in the history of the school is written. The entire Oak Hill Academy faculty and staff welcomes our students to campus and looks forward to another successful year.


Oak Hill Academy Welcomes Students to Campus!


“The Seven Habits� Every summer at OHA students and staff read an all-school book which best incorporates our yearly theme. This year, our theme is commitment. How do we remain steadfast and true to principles and goals as well as honoring the obligations to self and others? Our book choice, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey, incorporates seven goals that use commitment in making positive life changes. This book not only serves as a guide for teens to improve their self-image, build friendships, resist peer pressure and achieve goals, but it also offers hope. How will teens deal with peer pressure? Motivation? Success or lack thereof? With commitment and a vision, teens can develop a personal mission statement and set both short- and long-range goals. Our advisors and their advisees will be using this book in a series of curriculum m e e t i n g s throughout the year. Each meeting will focus on a different habit from the book: being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, putting first things first, thinking win-win, seeking first to understand as well as being understood, synergizing, and sharpening the saw (renewal). The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens serves as a compass to guide teens through the land mines of adolescence and into value-driven adulthood. It is not surprising that it was a national best-seller.


OHA Welcomes Ms. Cyndie Richardson Ms. Richardson is a familiar face in a new position after being named OHA’s principal in July.

At the most recent OHA Graduation Exercises, Ms. Richardson was described as “a quality educator … unfailingly professional in all of her interactions with faculty, staff, students, and parents … an incredible asset to the Oak Hill Academy community.” Ms. Richardson possesses three bachelor degrees and an earned M.Ed. in Special Education. Throughout her career she has served as a teacher, counselor, and admissions liaison in Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia.

He served the school as a trustee from 1988-2007 and was the chair of the Board for several terms during his tenure. A life-long Virginia Baptist, Rev. Gordon exhibited a strong passion for education and a desire for Virginia Baptist Agencies to serve the cause of Christ daily in their mission and practice. For years Rev. Gordon advocated on behalf of Oak Hill Academy, representing our school on various committees and subcommittees in the BGAV. Rev. Gordon is passionate about the story of Oak Hill Academy. Though living far from campus and retired in Amherst, he continues to support our school, even working with local churches to coordinate mission trips and work trips to our campus.

Thank you Rev. Gordon for your dedication and service to Oak Hill Academy.

Former Student Visits Campus

Alex Rodgers, OHA Class of 2010 and currently a junior at Princeton University, returned to campus in September to speak to our students. She brought a fresh perspective to our seniors, energizing them to make the most of their time on “the hill.� Drawing from her own life experiences, Alex encouraged students to embrace the challenges they face, and utilize their support systems in order to overcome these challenges. These are the keys to success not only in college, but in all of life.

Even as Alex spoke in an engaging and comfortable manner to our 41 seniors, she acknowledged her past fear of public speaking. With support and encouragement from OHA faculty and staff, and a significant amount of personal determination, she overcame that fear as she prepared her senior devotion for the OHA student body. Alex went on to be an Honors Speaker at graduation, and now as a Division I student athlete is often called upon to speak in front of groups. Alex connected her own experiences with the challenges all students face, and left them inspired to see their obstacles as a path to growth, and the OHA community as a resource to assist that growth.

Thank you Alex, and we wish you the best during your junior year!

The Welcome Home Reception held in the Ussery Archives Room on Friday evening kicked off the weekend. Saturday morning began with the annual alumni meeting led by OHA president Dr. Michael Groves. Class pictures, campus tours led by current students, and lunch in Vaughan Dining Hall followed. The afternoon began with a brief memorial service to pay tribute to alumni who had passed during the past year. The tolling of the campus bell and singing of the Alma Mater marked this occasion. Our summer school students then joined the group for an ice cream social. The day’s events were capped off with dinner, dancing, and a silent auction at the Mississippi Pavilion in Noonkester Park. The weekend wrapped up on Sunday morning with the Alumni Brunch at the Hough Dormitory Picnic Shelter and worship service at Young’s Chapel Baptist Church. Our goal is to make this weekend the best it can possibly be for all OHA alumni and former students and their families. If you have never attended or if its been several years since you have been to an Alumni Weekend, please join your classmates and come celebrate with us July 12-14, 2013!

Dr. Noonkester served as President of William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi from 1956 to 1989. He was named President Emeritus following his retirement in 1989. Dr. Noonkester was instrumental in the development of Oak Hill’s “Noonkester Park,” providing valuable assistance with obtaining the property and fundraising for construction. The family requests that memorial contributions be made to Oak Hill Academy or to the Carey Center at William Carey University.

“Over the Hill Alumni” Gang The 2012 alumni work week was again fun for all. The “Over the Hill” Gang made their way to campus for a week of work and fun. They completed their usual gardening tasks and also finished up cleaning the white fence along the main drive. An original member of the “Over the Hill Alumni” gang was lost this year with the passing of William Bruce. Many fond memories of work weeks past where shared during the group’s time on campus. A special thanks to all of the workers, Don Krauss, Harry and Sarah (Ussery) Sink, Ted Ussery, and Mary and Otis Reamy. Several members of the gang could not be with us due to conflicts and they were missed. We look forward to the return of the “Over the Hill Gang” again next summer!


$1 Per Year Campaign Update In order to get as many alumni and former students as possible involved in the mission of OHA and listed on our Alumni “Honor Roll” the “$1 Per Year Campaign” was launched last year. The “$1 Per Year Campaign” asks alumni and former students to give back to their Alma Mater by donating at least $1 for every year since they graduated from or attended Oak Hill Academy. The campaign was so successful that we are once again asking all alumni and former students to participate. We have a goal of doubling the number of participants in the “$1 Per Year Campaign” and encourage all former students to send in your donations. This is an easy and affordable way for all alumni and former students to give back to their Alma Mater! Thank you to the following alumni and former students who made a contribution to OHA since June 1, 2012:

Gold Team News - 2012-13 Season Outlook The 2012-13 Warrior squad enters this year with high hopes. Hours of training and hard work makes them optimistic about duplicating the success of last season. Returning from the national championship team of 2011-12 are seniors RJ Curington, Ike Iroegbu, and Victor Ieronymides. Joining them in their bid for national prominence are new seniors Nate Britt, Sindarius Thornwell, and Gonzalo Santana in the backcourt. Senior wing Troy Williams provides leadership and athleticism. Senior Lennard Freeman and Junior Rokas Gustys give the Warriors strength and power on the frontline. The addition of underclassmen Khadim Dieng, Chris Tang, and Terrence Phillips gives the Warriors great depth and makes them primed for another outstanding season as they play the best high school teams in the country. It should be another banner year for the Oak Hill Warriors.
