We were thrilled to be joined recently by Class of 1996 alum Les Williams for the first installment of our Alumni Reflections series!
The TJ Partnership Fund congratulates Les on his recent induction to the FCPS Hall of Fame by Educate Fairfax! In this interview, Les describes his remarkable career path as well as the many charitable organizations and foundations on which he's served over the years since his graduation from TJ. He describes the process leading up to his interest in TJ, his post-TJ academic career at the University of Virginia and Harvard Business School, and stints at IBM, Ford Motor Company, and elsewhere. And of course, no alumni interview would be complete without some fond TJ memories and callbacks to some of our exceptional faculty!

TJ Biotech Makes an Impact - PART TWO
Our second installment in this series follows a new group of students back to the Jefferson Memorial, where National Parks Service Rangers escorted them to the world-famous cherry blossom trees surrounding the Tidal Basin!
The students took more biofilm samples from the trunks, branches, and buds of the trees for analysis using the Biotech Lab’s next-generation DNA sequencing instrumentation!
We’re so appreciative of the opportunity to work with the National Parks Service on this amazing project and greatly appreciate their permission to work with the trees.
TJ BIOTECH MAKES AN IMPACT - Part One
Last Friday, three TJ Biotechnology students joined Dr. Burnett to continue a project that has been a highlight since 2016.
With the assistance of National Parks Service Rangers, Suchita H., Nikhil K., and Sruthi S. climbed to the top of the Jefferson Memorial to scrape layers of biofilm that have been growing for many years on the building’s stones.
The students will bring the samples back to the TJ Biotechnology Lab to be analyzed by advanced DNA sequencing instruments… and the Parks Service will use that data to preserve our national monuments!
Part Two will feature our students collecting samples from the not-yet-bloomed cherry blossoms around the Tidal Basin!
The biggest congratulations to Andrew Seliskar (TJ '15) on making the U.S. National Team! We're wishing you the best in Tokyo!
CONGRATULATIONS to our Class of 2021 graduates! The TJPF is excited to officially welcome you to the TJ alumni community.
