Hammond was proud to welcome Colonel Tara Osborn ('79) back to campus at the first assembly of the new year.  Colonel Osborn is Chief Circuit Judge of the U.S. Army Trial Judiciary, 2nd Judicial Circuit, headquartered at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.  She presides over felony criminal trials and manages judicial operations at military installations throughout seven southeastern states.  Prior to her appointment to the bench in 2007, she completed a U.S. Army War College Fellowship as Special Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division, at the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, DC.  She served in combat during Operation Desert Storm as a legal advisor and an assistant operations officer.  One of only a handful of lawyers to cross into Iraq, she was one of two women to serve in an all-male tank brigade headquarters during combat operations. Her military decorations include the Legion of Merit and the Bronze Star. She is also recipient of the U. S. Department of State Superior Honor Award. Colonel Osborn shared her combined military and legal experiences with students in grades 9-12 and several members of the Class of 1979.  Following the assembly, she had lunch and a question and answer session with students.

Hammond took on cross town rival Heathwood, and it was a red letter day as Skyhawks young and old celebrated Homecoming.  

Alumni gathered at the home of Headmaster Chris Angel prior to the game to reminisce and reconnect.  Bailey Dukes ('13) and Roo Daniels ('13), last year's Homecoming Queen and King, were on hand to pass the crowns to Ellie Locke and Garrett Ayers.  Capping the night, the Skyhawks beat the Highlanders 17-0 in a spirited match on the gridiron.

View the slideshow of the Alumni Reception.

Go Skyhawks!
