Over the past few years, and this year specifically,Westminster has grown significantly.
Fortunately, we are still a tightly knit community, but as I walk the halls, I find myself seeing students and teachers whose names I do not know. This is a problem because community is a key part of Westminster. The goal of this new column is therefore to introduce new teachers to the student body and help maintain the intimacy of the Westminster community.
First up: Mr. Brewer Ames. Until recently I had never spoken a word to him in my life. I approached him in the Atrium during lunch one day. He greeted me with a warm smile and a handshake. Originally from Montgomery, AL, Mr. Ames attended Trinity Presbyterian School, a school fairly similar to Westminster. This is the same school we compete against in soccer, track, and cross country. After high school Mr. Ames attended Auburn University, majoring in Management Information Systems (MIS). After this he attended Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and earned his Masters of Divinity. His hobbies include “anything and everything outdoorsy,” to put it in his own words. He especially enjoys hunting and fishing.
Next time your downstairs, take a minute to drop in an get to know Mr. Ames.
