Faculty & Staff Spotlight

Harry Thomas always arrives a little early for Durham Academy commencement at UNC's Memorial Hall. It's not because he wants a seat down front. He's assured of that as a member of the Upper School faculty. He arrives early so he can visit a bench behind a building across the street from Memorial Hall, a bench where he sat in utter despair five years ago.
Maintenance foreman Randy Baker has been working at Durham Academy for 37 years and is the father of a DA graduate, but were it not for a head poking around the corner of the business office, Baker wouldn't be here at all.
Jean Coene was just 3½ years old when she began attending a small preschool within walking distance of her home in suburban Manila. It was run by Jesuit nuns, and her teacher set Coene on a path that would be her life's work.
Karen Richardson doesn't remember a time when she wasn't singing. One of her earliest musical memories is sitting at the dining room table with headphones on — a 4-year-old listening to her mom and dad's records of Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt and Ella Fitzgerald — "just singing to my heart's content" to music that only she could hear.
Jordan Babwah knew he wanted to be a physical therapist since sixth grade. He even charted an 11-year plan for his path to physical therapy school. But that all changed two weeks into his job supervising the Durham Academy's new Upper School weight room.
