A man of many talents, Nick Binkley ’64 is founding partner in the investment firm of Forrest Binkley & Brown. Previously he was Vice Chairman of Security Pacific Corporation, then following the merger of BankAmerica and Security Pacific, he became Vice Chairman and a member of the Board of Directors of Bank America.
Binkley is also a musician who served in the Peace Corps in Tunisia. He’s been playing the guitar in bands since his days at Webb and recorded two CDs, Let the Boy Jam and Pin Stripe Brain. Currently he is producing two films: Odetta, about the civil rights folk singer and activist, which will appear on PBS' American Masters program in 2010 and The Soft Power of Hard Rock-Behind the Iron Curtain. The latter chronicles the story of how Western rock music and pop culture helped bring down Soviet communism by infecting youth behind the Iron Curtain. It has been in production for four years and been endorsed by both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively. In October 2017, she was invited to give a Tedx Talk in Providence, Rhode Island, where she spoke on the legacy of her grandparents, how their work inspired her and the incredible work she is doing with our youth through The Sparkle Program.
We are pleased and excited to announce the appointment of Jennifer Liu as Webb’s Director of Parent Relations and Special Events effective November 1. In this position, Liu will oversee our parent relations program, which serves more than 750 current parents worldwide and an active volunteer network through our Affiliates parent organization.
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.
