Congratulations to Liza Mundy '78, this year's Distinguished Alumnus/a Award recipient. She joined Leigh Huff ’76 on February 1 during Founder's Day to receive her award and spoke with students about her experience here and as a writer. Liza is a journalist and author of four books, most recently Code Girls. You can watch the award presentation below.
Andy Kegley '77 never thought he would stay in Wytheville, VA after working a summer job on his family's farm; but one summer grew into a permanent stay and a passion for his local community.
Andy started at North Cross in 6th grade with his siblings Mary Louise "Sissy" '78, Robert '81, and Richard '83. It was at North Cross that Andy learned how to become a better reader, writer, and critical thinker, thanks to teachers like Richard Cook, Bob Robertson, and Hugh Meagher. "I also enjoyed the Outdoors Program, which was led by Middle and Upper School Biology teacher, Max Travis. That laid a foundation for my love of the outdoors, and because of that, I went on to study and eventually major in Natural Resources at Sewanee."
