Great nephew of The Webb Schools' founder Thompson Webb and great grandson of Sawney Webb (founder of the Webb School in Bellbuckle, Tennessee, Lawrence “Larry” Price ’61 is the Director of the High Energy Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory. Since starting in 1978, Price has pursued several multi-institution and multi-year physics experiments. He has been involved with such projects as measuring the shape and size of the proton, learning the nature of quarks and gluons, and the search for proton instability and study of neutrinos from the atmosphere.
Before Argonne National Laboratory, Price was a professor at Columbia University where he stayed for eight years. He received his doctorate and master’s degrees from Harvard University and bachelor’s at Pomona College.
While at Webb, Price was a recipient of the Horace Blackman Award, a member of the student newspaper, and a peccary man. He also enjoyed theater and soccer. After graduating cum laude, he attended Pomona College for his bachelor’s degree and subsequently Harvard University for his master’s and PhD.
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively.

An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
For Webb sports fans who can’t attend a game, or if you’d like to follow along with the live stats and scores from our athletic contests, most of our home games will be covered live with video and play-by-play at The NFHS Network.
