President’s Message Convocation Address, August 29th, 2011

Dr. Michael D. Groves, President

Following is the text of Dr. Groves’ Convocation Address to the school community. Welcome to Oak Hill Academy. This is our 133rd year. In just a few moments we will sound The Academy Bell, signaling the official beginning to the academic year. It will not chime again until graduation eve, May 18, 2012. Notice I said, “This is our 133rd year.” Keep a watchful eye on your use of pronouns on this campus. I prefer the pronoun … “our.” (For you grammarians out there, I understand that, technically, “our” is a first person plural pronoun functioning in this case as a possessive adjective.) This is our 133rd year. “Our” is important because “our” includes every person in this room, plus quite a few more. “Our” includes alumni from around the world, friends and supporters, trustees, neighbors, even former employees are thinking about us today. Without question, the number of people who comprise the “our” far exceeds the number of people sitting in chapel this fine morning of August 29, 2011. I hope that you can all find comfort in these details. For students, many have traveled this journey before you and emerged on the other end a stronger person, more positioned for success. For our faculty and staff, so many people are supporting you in your work here. Please know that the OHA mission is alive and effective, and know that numerous people are thinking about you today. Some of these friends and supporters will likely never even step foot on campus this year; still they are supporting you, praying for you, and hoping for the success of our school and its mission. Mission. Oak Hill Academy is a mission-oriented school. I am unabashedly proud that every decision made on this campus is in direct relation to whether or not it will be in accord with our mission. I cannot emphasize it enough: The mission, the mission, the mission. I have elsewhere described The Mission as the funnel through which all things about OHA pass. Rules, standards, expectations, all are in place because we believe it helps us meet our mission. Why do we do something? Why do we not do something? It’s obvious … the mission. I love movies, and often recall favorite scenes or lines in a given situation that arises here on campus. For example, at the very end of the movie “The Firm,” the Tom Cruise character returns a cassette containing a secretly taped conversation between him and a rogue FBI agent. Throughout the film a troublesome irony has slowly evolved: Tom Cruise was being pursued equally by mobsters and law enforcement authorities—and both were acting illegally. Bewildered that he would return a tape that is so valuable, so potentially explosive, the FBI agent asks “why

are you giving this to me?” The Cruise character responds with a line that exposes the thematic key to the entire movie and is obvious to everyone except the FBI agent. Why did he turn over the secret (and illegal) recording? The answer is obvious … “because it’s against the law.” Now, let’s not draw a parallel too directly here. No one at OHA is chasing anyone—and especially not doing so illegally. But there is a lesson here for us and for our school. My answer to the countless questions and inquiries about our school can almost always boil down to the following (very obvious) answer: “It’s all about the mission.” The OHA mission is the life blood of our school. In fact, in my opening address to the faculty and staff last week I stated the following: “We can only begin to meet the needs of our students if we follow the parameters of our mission.” Then, almost immediately, I added, “And we can only abide by our mission if we function as a community.” And so, we embrace enthusiastically a “mission first” philosophy at OHA. And yet always supporting this philosophy must be our community. In fact, the Oak Hill Academy theme for the 2011-2012 academic year is “Community.” You will hear us reference this term often. We will dissect it, discuss it, and toss it around so much it will become part of our daily vernacular; the term will appear in our literature, in our speeches, in my e-mails to parents, it will even appear on our yearbook. The Oak Hill Academy Community: Our Community. Our community extends throughout the United States and the world. Our community spans 133 years. Our community embraces the old-fashioned tenets of hard work, discipline, and focus. Our community emphasizes academic development alongside spiritual nourishment. And, yes, our community supports without question or hesitation the Oak Hill Academy Mission. And this mission is in place to support you, our students. Why are we gathered here today? Why do we do what we do? Why does this community work so hard? The answer is obvious … The Mission. The Chiming of the Academy Bell I welcome you here to this special place. May God Bless you, May God Bless us, and May God Bless our community … our school, Oak Hill Academy. Year 133 has begun.

On Monday morning, August 29, the original school bell chimed as Oak Hill Academy officially began its 133rd 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 and 14 foreign countries. All have come together to create our unique community on “the hill” where we will strive to provide a “Turning Point” through our commitment to excellence in providing 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.


“We Beat the Street�

tells the inspiring story of three African American boys who grew up in a tough neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey. They dealt with temptations and fears associated with the drugs and crime that permeated their surrounding culture. One day, by happenstance, they learned of a special program that would assist students in going to medical and dental school. Hesitant yet hopeful, the boys made a pact with each other that they would all apply, and would support one another through the entire program. Their journey from that point involved many ups and downs, and moments of realizing how difficult it was to put the more negative aspects of their culture behind them. Yet they persevered and all three are highly successful doctors/dentists today.


The Oak Hill Academy theme for this year is “Community.” We’ll focus on the importance of creating a positive community across our campus, where the traits of trustworthiness, respect, caring, citizenship, fairness, and responsibility are evident. The three doctors in “We Beat the Street” attribute their success in large part to the supportive community they created for themselves in the midst of the broader culture around them. Their story motivates us to develop a similar support system on our campus. While we may not have to deal with the extreme conditions of these three young men, all of us can benefit from having that sense of community in our lives. The challenge for each of us is to become the kind of community member that exemplifies these traits and helps OHA develop a positive environment throughout the year.


Dr. Jill Hopkins

OHA Welcomes

Dr. Jill Hopkins was named as Oak Hill Academy’s principal this summer and comes to us from Mountain State University in Beckley, West Virginia. The highlights of Dr. Hopkins’ resume indicate a person of character, talent, and versatility. She has served as a Head of School for Mountain State Academy, Chief Retention Officer, Associate Vice President, and Provost at Mountain State University; Assistant Principal and Counselor at the junior high and high school level. Dr. Hopkins also has extensive teaching experience and numerous certifications in counseling and school administration. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Concord College, a Master of Arts in Leadership from Marshall University, a Master of Arts in Counseling from West Virginia University, and a Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership from West Virginia University. Dr. Hopkins is energetic, professional, creative, and mission-focused. We are excited to have her joining the Oak Hill Academy administrative team.

Mr. Tim Riedl

Tim Riedl, a native of Dubuque, Iowa, earned his B.A. degree in Social Science Education with a minor in Coaching from the University of Northern Iowa. While at UNI, Tim was active in the Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity and volunteered as a high school track and field coach. Tim has been involved with the Boy Scouts of America for over 15 years and is an Eagle Scout. He enjoys hiking, camping, running, and working out. Tim is most excited about getting involved with campus life and connecting with students. In addition to teaching in the social studies department, Mr. Riedl will serve as Oak Hill’s soccer coach.

Mrs. Peggy Jo Braswell Mrs. Peggy Jo Braswell hails from the Flatlands of Eastern North Carolina. Her undergraduate and graduate degrees were obtained through her studies at East Carolina University. She and her husband have been graced with three wonderful children that have now grown up to be their best friends. Their list of pets through the years is long and includes horses, ponies, dogs, a goat, a rabbit, and an occasional cat. Currently their four-legged companions are Little Bit (an aged but ruling beagle) and Ladybug (half lab/half beagle street waif that “followed” their daughter home). Travel is among their favorite pastimes and they usually head off to visit their son (in the Lancaster area of PA), middle daughter (Orlando) or youngest daughter (a senior at Appalachian State University). In addition to aggravating their offspring, they love camping, hiking, and kayaking with family members. To quote Mrs. Braswell, “In short to me, family is everything, history a passion, and life an adventure!”


New Faculty Members Ms. Brittany Luksic Miss Brittany Luksic earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Art and a minor in P-12 education with an ESOL endorsement from Berry College in Rome, Georgia. She completed her student teaching at Calhoun High School, a Title 1 distinguished school, in North Georgia. Originally from Florida, Miss Luksic has lived in the beautiful state of Georgia for the last nineteen years. She is a member of Pi Delta Kappa, National Education Association, and Omicron Delta Kappa. She also has an extensive background in volunteerism as a Bonner Scholar, and during her college career volunteered ten hours each week as the art director at organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club in Rome, Youth Museum in Marietta, and Girl’s Inc. Brittany spent a month of her summer in 2010 in Italy traveling with her school in a study in diverse cultures. She taught in multi-grade classrooms and hiked both the Stromboli and Etna Volcanoes. She chose teaching at the high school level because she believes that high school students have a great capacity for creativity and imagination when they are given the encouragement they need, and she finds no greater joy in life than seeing that “ah ha” moment when a child figures out that he or she can achieve, even in art.

Mrs. Barbara Davis Mrs. Barbara Davis was born and raised in the small town of North East, Maryland. After completing the pre-pharmacy curriculum at East Tennessee State University, she attended and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. She has worked as a drug research pharmacologist with the Department of the Army; was a sales representative specializing in cancer fighting drugs for the Lederle Drug Company; worked as a clinical hospital pharmacist and a retail pharmacist in many community pharmacies. Mrs. Davis and her husband Leo, who teaches physics at OHA, moved to the area from Boone, North Carolina, in 2005. She has 3 step-children and 3 grandchildren living in Maryland and Delaware. The Davis’ enjoy teaching at Oak Hill Academy and look forward to getting to know the students, faculty, and community.

Mr. Mike Rodgers Mr. Mike Rodgers is a familiar face in a new position after being named OHA’s Director of Admission in July. An Oak Hill Academy alumnus (Class of 1987) and father of two OHA graduates, Mike has served on our faculty as a teacher of Social Studies since 2003. He has also guided our Lady Warriors basketball program to new levels of national recognition and success. Mike knows our school very well and he possesses the ability to convey to prospective parents and students the life changing mission of our school.


Ussery Archives Room Dedication

T

he long awaited dedication of the Ussery Archives Room took place on Saturday, July 16th during Alumni Weekend. Built to house the 133 years of Oak Hill history and named in honor of Rev. and Mrs. L.D. Ussery, the Ussery Archives room is now open for all to see and enjoy. The official ribbon cutting was done by former Oak Hill President Ed F. Patton, Sarah Ussery Sink - ‘63, Ted Ussery - ‘60, Ernie Surles ‘63, and current student OHA student Chase Jones. Thanks to former OHA librarian Laura Bryant all of the data, photos, and artifacts that represent the history of the academy are being organized, recorded, properly preserved, and artfully displayed in this new multipurpose room. Laura is also working on a program that will eventually make all of the materials housed in the archives available for viewing on-line from any where in world. Laura has graciously volunteered her expertise and time to tackle this huge ongoing project. Any time you are in the area please stop by and spend some time enjoying a nostalgic walk through the past by viewing the displays in the Ussery Archives Room.

*We welcome any items you would like to donate or share that pertain to the history of Oak Hill Academy.


Fields Dormitory Renovation Historic Fields Dormitory, which is home to the 8th and 9th grade boys at Oak Hill Academy, has undergone major renovations this past spring and summer. The bath and shower rooms, TV and game room, and student rooms were all completely refurbished. One of the oldest and most significant buildings on campus, Fields was originally constructed in 1914 as the official “school house” with money donated by the W.C. Fields family from Mouth of Wilson. Classes were taught in this building until the early 1990’s when it was then converted into a boy’s dormitory. Still structurally very sound, this important part of Oak Hill’s history has been remodeled and renewed so that it can continue to serve our needs well into the future.

Congratulations to the Pattons! Oak Hill Academy is pleased to offer congratulations to Ed and Carolyn Patton for their Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary. In honor of this occasion their sons, Mark (Class of 84) and Dan (Class of 87), have generously provided a monetary gift to our school: “In recognition of their love, devotion, and commitment to each other and to Oak Hill Academy.” Any gifts received in honor of Ed and Carolyn Patton will be directed to the Jewell Patton Endowment Fund. Ed and Carolyn … Congratulations and thank you for your being such wonderful ambassadors for Oak Hill Academy! ng

“Over the Hill Alumni” Gang The 2011 alumni work week finished with fun for all. Everyone stayed in Ingram Dormitory and we even had a travel trailer parked behind the dorm this year. We did our usual gardening tasks and also worked on cleaning the white fence along the main drive. The school did a great job of choosing the work project this year. They knew with our advanced age we would be experienced at cleaning so they could expect a superior result. I don’t think we let them down because I saw a lot of the staff put their sunglasses on when they drove by the newly cleaned fence! The school let us use the power washer hooked up to a 300 gallon portable water tank. We did need to manually scrub the dirt off to get the fence shiny white. It took all of our expertise and old antiquated knowledge of physics to figure out how to get the gravity fed water to provide enough pressure into the power washer. We had Otis assigned as designated driver so he had to haul the work crew and the 300 gallon water tank to and from the work site. When Otis wasn’t carting us around he was catching up on the school happenings by riding around with the maintenance staff. It brought back fond memories of Otto Seidel and Dave Pittman driving all over campus. We lost a second member of the OHA Alumni gang this year. Ross Cofield is now with Dave Pittman watching us from above. A special thanks to all of the workers, Ken Boettcher, Joan and Ron Anderson, Ann Brown, Don Krauss, Harry and Sarah (Ussery) Sink, Ted Ussery, JoAnn Watkins, and Mary and Otis Reamy. We have the back half of the pasture fence to do next year so if this sounds like fun we would love to have new volunteers. Submitted by the “Over the Hill” Gang

Become Part of the “Over the Hill Alumni” Gang A Great Way to Give Back to Your School! Attention alumni and former students – Are you willing to get a little dirty, sleep in a dorm room, eat in Vaughan Dining Hall, laugh a lot, and sweat little? If so, give Dr. Groves or Tim Henry a call about becoming part of the “Over the Hill Alumni” Gang. The 2012 work week will be July 9-13!


$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 this summer. 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. Our goal is to have as many folks as we possibly can listed in the Alumni Giving section of the State of the Academy Report and on our new website. This is a great and affordable way to show your support for OHA and its mission! Thank you to the following alumni and former students who have made a contribution to OHA since June 1, 2011:

Gold Team News - 2011-12 Season Outlook

This year’s gold team has high expectations with four of the top eight players on last year’s roster returning. Senior returnees include:  Jordan Adams (UCLA), AJ Hammons, and Damien Wilson (Memphis).  Senior transfers, Darion Clark, Montarius Hall, Tyler Lewis, D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera, and Jordan Tebbutt, provide the Warriors with the depth needed to tackle one of the toughest schedules in Oak Hill basketball history.  RJ Curington, a junior, returns for his second season with the Gold Team, and he will be joined by underclassmen Victor Ieronymides and Ike Iroegbu.  The Warriors will play teams from sixteen different states and participate in holiday tournaments at the Chick-fil-A Classic in Columbia, South Carolina, and the Les Schwab Invitational in Portland, Oregon.  It should be another banner year for the Oak Hill Academy Gold Team.
