A W ord From the Rector
The Reverend Jay C. James
This is an “old” model for overseeing the running of a parochial
school. Some would say that it’s “antique” and even “old fashioned”. I prefer to call it “traditional” and “time-tested”. This
model works very well for us in the Church and the School because
of its simplicity, its proper alignment of priorities, and the fact that
it lets me operate under my favorite administrative principle “if it
ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
t. Timothy’s School is an outreach of the faith and practice of
St. Timothy’s Church. Our School exists and operates because
the members of St. Timothy’s Church believe that teaching children
is an important calling of Jesus Christ. If St. Timothy’s Church did
not see the education of children as a calling then there would be no
St. Timothy’s School. This calling is really what makes us a Christian School. We assume that when parents give us the honor and
privilege of educating their children that the parents know that we
are trying to carry out our calling. As St. Paul charges our own
St. Timothy, But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the
work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. At St. Timothy’s
Church we are only trying to “make full proof of (our) ministry” by
reaching out to children with the ministry of St. Timothy’s School.
In practice this model is successful because the ministries of the
Church and the School are mutually beneficial and because of basic
“good will”. The Church benefits because it has a ministry that
truly reaches out to the community with its School. The School
benefits because it is grounded in Christian principles and an
Anglican Tradition that give it weight, purpose and stability. With
this mutually beneficial relationship is the cooperation and unityof-purpose between our Vestry and School Board. The concerned,
talented and faithful members of both the Vestry and School Board
share and generate good will that redounds to the success of both
the Church and the School.
So what is the relation of the Church to our parochial School by
virtue of being a ministry of our Church? From a spiritual perspective the relation is that the Holy Ghost has called the Church to
minister to children by enlightening their hearts, minds, bodies
and souls. This takes the shape, from a practical perspective, of
the Vestry of St. Timothy’s Church giving authority to the School
Board to govern the School. The Vestry of the Church allows
St. Timothy’s School to exist and gives our School Board the authority to raise money, hire the headmaster and make major policy
decisions for the School. The Rector of St. Timothy’s Church is the
chairman of the School Board and appoints School Board members. These lines of authority are really that simple.

How thankful we should be to the men and women who volunteer
so much of their time, talent and treasure to serve on the Vestry of
the Church and St. Timothy’s School Board. God is truly working
through their presence on both organizations to the benefit of our
children. May God continue to bless the work He began fifty-two
years ago because this work is a great blessing to our children.

in memory of Lisa Ham and in support of

Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center, where
Lisa was treated for the cancer that claimed
her life so abruptly last February.
The Durham facility is one of only 40 nationwide designated by the National Cancer
Institute as a comprehensive cancer center.
The award in Lisa’s memory will be bestowed
at an annual cancer conference at Duke

a sizeable contingent from Raleigh’s First
Presbyterian Church, came out to honor the
memory of a cherished friend and colleague.
“When Lisa was diagnosed last fall,” said race
coordinator and STS Director of Marketing
Sharon Keen, “we decided immediately to
designate the Comprehensive Cancer Center
as the recipient of our proceeds.”
It was suggested that the race be held In
Honor of Lisa Ham.
Not one to draw attention to herself, and
always mindful of the trials and tribulations
of others, Lisa resisted. She relented only
when the phrase “and Others Struggling With
Cancer” was added. n
But fundraising, albeit an important part
of Lisa’s job, wasn’t even what she did best.
What Lisa Ham did better than anyone else
was to develop relationships.
She developed respected relationships
with students, as a journalism teacher and
their Student Council advisor. She developed mutually rewarding relationships
with teachers, as the mother of three STS
students and a member of the school’s
strategic planning committee who sought
and valued their input. She developed personal relationships with parents, as a fellow parent and the administrative liaison
to Friends of St. Timothy’s.
She developed milestone relationships
with alumni, forming an Alumni Council to
provide a lasting connection to the school.
And she developed loving relationships
within the STS administration which, in a
small, independent school, operates much
like an extended family.
Some were avid runners who registered when
the Sprint became part of the Second Empire Grand Prix, a series of nine local running races held each year. Others, including

The Titans achieved not only incredible accolades in fierce competition, but also represented the
school community with pride
and determination showing great
sportsmanship and learning
valuable life lessons in and out of
the athletic arena.
Bringing home the Triangle
Middle School Conference Tournament Championship looked
easy as the Lady Titan Volleyball Team literally “volleyed”
their way to victory under the
experienced gaze of Coach Judy

an overall record of 14 wins and
3 losses with a conference record
of 6-2, placing them as the regular season conference runner-up.
Through the leadership of the
nine eighth graders on the team,
the ladies were able to fight
off a tough Bethesda Christian

the championship. Three team
managers, Evan Fritsch, Victoria
Griffin, and Maribelle Scoggin,
helped the team stay organized

Jarrett Cervi proved to be valuable assets during the season,
according to Coach Williams.
Only five members of the 19

upon graduation. The returning
squad will be a potent threat for
the Fall 2010 season!
The Fall 2009 season also
proved to be a fruitful time for
the Lady Titan Tennis Team.

400 children each day, ranging in age from
toddlers to teens,” he said. “We were in a
When a four-year-old reached up for a hug,
Campbell hoisted him onto his shoulders.
“He started shrieking and I was afraid I had
hurt him when I lifted him,” he said, “but
he was screaming for joy simply because
someone was paying attention to him. When
I tried to put him down, he tightened his grip
on my shoulders!”
“He was too weak to smile,”
Campbell said, “but we could see a
glimmer of recognition in his eyes
as we held him.”
The group also visited Cité Soleil,
one of the world’s largest and most
dangerous slums with no sewer
system, no electricity, and no police
force. “We had driver/bodyguards,” Campbell said, “but even then, it was
only safe to visit the periphery of the slum.”
His time in Haiti was short, but the memories
will last a long time. He would love to return,
and just might have the opportunity. Upon
graduation from Elon in May, Campbell took
a position with NDI. n
St. Timothy’s Joins Haiti Relief Effort
hen a devastating earthquake rocked
Haiti on January 12, the first question at St. Timothy’s was not, “Can we
help?” It was, “How can we help? The STS
character trait for January
was responsibility and, with a
communal feeling of responsibility to aid the impoverished
Caribbean nation, students,
parents and faculty swung into
In plastic milk jugs and
other makeshift containers,
homerooms collected nickels,
dimes, quarters and bills. By the one-month
anniversary of the earthquake, donations
exceeded $2,000.
Friends of St. Timothy’s added its monthly
profits from the Titan Bucks program, an
ongoing fundraiser whereby families order
gift cards at face value, the school receives
a discount for placing a bulk order and the
difference is realized in profit
for STS.
Classroom donations and
fundraiser proceeds were combined and donated to Hope for
Haiti, a non-profit organization
supporting the country, with a
special emphasis on educating
its children, for almost 20 years.
Middle school students added to the effort
by hosting a talent show in the gymnasium
featuring vocalists, musicians, dancers – even
a bit of magic. Faculty emcee Matt Scheer
entertained the capacity crowd between acts

with some impromptu dance moves, but the
crème de la crème of the evening was a pie
in the face for the cause! Five middle school
teachers offered their faces as targets, with
students buying tickets for a random drawing and the opportunity to hurl a whipped
cream pie.
The Middle School Talent Show raised an
additional $1,500, donated to the American
Red Cross for Haitian relief.

Second Graders Send Care Packages to Iraq,
Enjoy Visit From Army Medic Home on Leave
second graders joined forces
with the North Raleigh Civitan
Club again this year to pack military care
boxes for soldiers in Iraq. Last year’s effort
won the local club a first place award for
ongoing contribution to the military from the
NC Civitan District East.
“I believe a lot of the reason we won first place
was because we involved the school children,”
said JoAnn Harper, president of the North
Raleigh club. “With the help of the children
from St. Timothy’s, we were able to send more
supplies and add that special note from a child
which is truly appreciated by our soldiers.”
In addition to personal notes to the soldiers,
students brought in hand sanitizer, hot chocolate and lemonade mixes, pens and pencils,
crackers, beef jerky, hard candies, chewing
gum and personal car items. An anonymous
local dentist contributed AT&T gift cards.
A number of soldiers responded with thank
you notes to the students.
Although the second graders never met their
care package recipients, they enjoyed an informative visit from a soldier recently returned
from the Middle East.
Cpl. Zach Haunsperger, an Army medic
home on leave, presented a slide show including the streets of Baghdad, Iraqi children
playing outdoors, open air markets, mosques,

Saddam Hussein’s palace, Black Hawk helicopters and Army convoys. Then he answered questions from the inquisitive young
“How far away is Iraq?” another asked. “Six
thousand miles,” he replied.
“Did you ever get hot in Iraq?” one student
asked. “Every day!” Haunsperger responded,
explaining that temperatures routinely
reached 110º in the shade and 135º in the
sun. It gets cold at night in the winter, he
added, because the desert can’t hold heat and
temperatures often drop into the 40s.

STS Alum Makes Her
Mark in Cross Country
oogle the name Wesley
Frazier and you’ll come
across a few hits. A few pages of
hits, that is.
A 2009 graduate of St. Timothy’s,
where she began her cross country
career, Frazier started turning
heads in September of her freshman year at Ravenscroft when she
shattered the state girls’ record in
winning the Seahawk Invitational
at UNC-Wilmington.
She caught the eye of editors at
ESPN RISE magazine and was
named a Regional Athlete of the
Week, cited for “a pair of sub18:00 5K performances in the
first two meets of her career.” The
second, the article noted, was a
17:36 at a tri-meet where she beat
everyone (including boys) by more
than two-and-a-half minutes.
By mid-year, Frazier was named
the 2009-2010 Gatorade North
Carolina Girls Cross Country
Runner of the Year. She racked up
an impressive array of accolades,
including the nation’s sixth fastest
5,000-meter time (17 minutes,
5.09 seconds) and a tenth place
finish in the distinguished Foot
Locker Nationals in San Diego.
Not bad for a 14-year-old who
Fine and Performing Arts, continued from page 1
stands five feet tall and weighs
about 80 pounds!
After her impressive debut in
cross country, Frazier was equally
daunting during track season.
At the Phoenix High School Classic at Elon University last March,
she shattered meet records in
the 1600m and 3200m races. A
week later, she ran the third fastest
two-mile time in state history
(10:37:37) at the Raleigh Relays.
So how does one attempt to improve upon a season like Frazier’s
freshman year?
“I’ll just continue to train and
work,” she said, “and hopefully,
as I get older and stronger, the
improvements will come.”
Training and working, it appears,
will occupy most of Frazier’s summer. After the Outdoor Nationals
in June, she will focus her efforts
on preparing for cross country in
the fall.

(of the Seven Dwarfs) and the
Wicked Witch (from the Wizard
of Oz) were in an anger management group,” Sizemore added.
Thirty theatre students in the
sixth, seventh and eighth grades
Parental support for the fine arts
and performing arts is abundant
at STS. More than 20 parents
assisted with the recent theatre
production through set building, ticket sales, make-up and
other roles. Three dozen parents
volunteered over two days before
Open House to set up for the
massive visual art show.
Several years ago, Friends of
St. Timothy’s established a Fine
Arts Committee to help with
ongoing needs. And last fall,
a “Roll Out for the Arts” roller
skating party was held to raise
additional funds for the fine arts
and performing arts programs.
“At a time when fine arts in the
public sector are facing a tsumani
of budget cuts,” Bierer said, “the
support of our parents and administration is phenomenal.” n
Modest and ever gracious, Frazier
has kind words for her alma mater.
“I enjoyed all aspects of my experience at St. Timothy’s,” she said.
“It prepared me well for high
school at Ravenscroft.” n
Top Awards for Eighth Graders
Wesley Frazier clocked in with an impressive 10th place finish at the
prestigious Foot Locker Nationals last winter.

Blue Dominates at Blue and White Days
lue and White Days, an STS tradition that dates back as far as anyone
on campus can remember, is a spirited
competition among students in grades
1-8 randomly assigned to either Team
Blue or Team White.
In recent years, Team White dominated
the three-day event in activities including the scooter race, Frogs in the Pond,
basketball shoot and Koosh in the Can.
It was no secret that Team Blue was
aiming to change that trend, and that’s
exactly what happened when the results
were tallied in May.

Derby Day
When the date for Founders’ Day 2010 was announced last fall,
co-chairs Benji Jones and Kate Duncan had no trouble picking
a theme. Coinciding with the running of the 136th Kentucky
Derby on May 1, the event was quickly dubbed “Derby Day.”
As is the custom at Churchill Downs, ladies donned their most
stylish hats for the occasion. But unlike the event in Kentucky,
the race was not the focus but merely the prelude to a fabulous
evening of fun, fellowship and fundraising.
A silent auction, raffle and live auction dominated the evening’s
activities. In the end, $41,645 was raised to finance a covered
walkway on campus.
