Welcome to Heads Up, a blogging experiment that aims to:
- connect the people, parts, and principles of Durham Academy;
- share ideas about learning and human development;
- spotlight a few of the many wondrous things I get to see every day at Durham Academy.
Thanks for reading the posts below — and sending news, links and ideas worth sharing.

The Fab Four of the Academy Road campus
This morning the Middle School cut a ribbon and gave a standing ovation to “the guys.”
We gathered in Taylor Hall to celebrate the opening of our new maintenance building and express our gratitude to the foursome of talented and generous men who are rarely inside it (they’re too busy taking care of our sprawling campus).
Gary Brichford, Rob Walker, Scott Stancil, and Steve Suggs accepted a golden “key” along with the grateful applause of our Middle School students and faculty.
MS Director Jon Meredith urged students to learn from the attitude of our maintenance workers, who seem always to be asking, “What else can I do to help?”
Indeed, DA is lucky to have such an excellent team of role models keeping our campus safe, orderly, and working smoothly. Thanks to Randee Haven-O’Donnell for dreaming up this occasion (and obtaining Durham’s largest pair of scissors).
