Alex Pfundt ’03 Embraces New George School Chapter as Director of Library Services

When Alex Pfundt ’03 was a student at George School, he could have never imagined that he would one day become the Director of Library Services. He’s always appreciated education, literature, and libraries—especially his experience with them in his formative years—and he was excited to attend George School as a student. He admired the way students carried themselves: self-assured, expressive, and genuinely invested in learning—a sentiment that remains true to this day. His journey to becoming a library director was not linear, and he prefers it that way. It is this kind of flexibility and openness to explore that he embraced at George School, and which ultimately led him back to this community three years ago.

Competitive Powerlifter Zoë Goykhman ’24 Sets Records

Zoë Goykhman ’24 is a dedicated student athlete who continually finds strength through fitness. For her, it is a part of her daily routine that centers her, teaches her resilience, and encourages her to push herself to try new things. When she experienced a career-ending tennis injury ahead of her junior year, she felt at a loss without the sport that had become an integral part of her life. That is, until she discovered powerlifting. Zoë subsequently now holds all of the Pennsylvania state records for female powerlifting in her weight and division and is number two in the country.

Celebrating the Retirement of Carter and Erin Sio

Carter Sio ’76 and Erin Sio will retire at the end of this academic year, leaving a forty-year legacy in the George School community after teaching countless courses, fostering important relationships with students, and co-leading more than half a dozen international service-learning trips, including South Korea, Vietnam, and our original project in Tanzania, all while raising two children (Emma and Dylan Sio ’09). We thank Carter and Erin for their years of service to the school and membership in its community.
