Webb graduate Roddy named 2007 Presidential Scholar


Recent Webb School of Knoxville graduate Katherine Roddy was named a Presidential Scholar by the United States Department of Education.

Roddy was this year’s Webb valedictorian. She is a National Merit Finalist, a member of the Cum Laude Society and an AP Scholar with Distinction.


She will attend Dartmouth College this fall where she plans to study either chemistry or the classics.

Each Presidential Scholar can invite his or her most inspiring and challenging teacher to travel to Washington, D.C. to receive a Teacher Recognition Award from the U.S. Department of Education and to participate in the Presidential Scholar recognition events.

Roddy has asked longtime Webb Upper School Latin teacher Janet Colbert to join her at the June event.

Roddy is the seventh Webb senior to be named a Presidential Scholar. Previous Webb School winners are: Iang Jeon ’78, Mary Crossley ’80, Elizabeth Johnson ’83, Philip King IV ’88, Bryan Wilson ’96 and Brad Smith ’01.

The Presidential Scholars program was created in 1964 to honor high academic achievement. It was expanded in 1979 to recognize students who demonstrate exceptional talent in visual, literary and performing arts.
