Kudos are in order for several members of the Nobles community. The achievements of faculty member Dave Ulrich, Class I student Felix Liang and recent graduate Jack Eisenmann '11 have been making headlines. Their work (and work ethic) has been showcased in a variety of media—including a well-respected academic journal, local broadcast television and tech-news websites, respectively.

"Teaching the Text and Images: Reeds and Riches in Classical Literature and the Nile Mosaic of Palestrina," by Nobles Class IV dean and modern languages and classics teacher Dave Ulrich, was recently published in New England Classical Journal, Volume 384, November 2011. The article was inspired by his travels in Italy and developed in part through his time in the Pergammonmuseum in Berlin.
This fall, Class I student Felix Liang was selected as a WCVB-TV Channel 5 A+ Scholar and was featured on a segment that aired in late November. The A+ Scholar is “a signature NewsCenter 5 series that shines a spotlight on outstanding high school seniors who have overcome incredible odds.” Channel 5’s David Brown reported the story on location at 10 Campus Drive.
The camera crew shot footage of Felix in class and in the art studio, before Brown discussed Felix’s academic career at Steppingstone and Nobles. Felix credited his parents for instilling in him the values of hard work and respect for others. He also credited his Nobles teachers for supporting his success.

This summer, Jack Eisenmann '11 designed and built the DUO Adept, an 8-bit computer, constructed from an old television, keyboard, lots of wire and 100 chips. He also developed the operating system. A Youtube video documenting the project has received more than 140,000 hits, and caught the attention of tech sites around the web. Click here for a piece published by AOL's engadget site.
