Albert Zhang ’18 is among the best high school badminton players in the state of California. His recent 6th place finish in the CIF State Badminton Championship marks the first-ever Webb appearance in the tournament, and certainly the school’s highest finish – and he’s only a junior!
Zhang is a bit of a newcomer to badminton, which makes his achievement stand out even more. “I started playing a couple years before I got to Webb, so it’s still a fairly new sport for me. I’ve put in a lot of time training and working with my coaches to get to this level. I’m thankful for the opportunity.”
As the team’s top scorer, Zhang was named Most Valuable Player by Coach Quick at their year-end banquet. He’ll continue to train and play this summer when he returns home to Shanghai, China.
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.
To learn more about working in independent schools and meet with school representatives about open positions, please join Webb and 30 other participants on Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City.
