The Christchurch School Hall of Fame: Life Time Achievements, Honor Achievements and Athletic Achievements.

As Christchurch School approaches her own century mark, we embark on a new process of recognizing the past and celebrating some memorable alumni/ae. We have studied the impact on our community, and the significant effort involved with such an undertaking. We believe it is this program that will build strong bonds between the proud past of Christchurch, and the exciting future.

Our first goal is to celebrate our history and accomplishments. Christchurch school has a rich history of competitive athletics, and high achievements of our graduates. We will endeavor to recognize those men and women who have truly given of themselves while as a student and have continued after Christchurch by achieving and accomplishing life challenges, as well as making a mark on society and the people around them.

We also know that in order to bring us to a higher level of recognition among our friends in independent education, we must raise our ability to offer the best in a college preparatory experience. It is simply the right time to reach for the stars. Our Hall of Fame will help to remind us of our past and also celebrate today with the accomplishments alumni have achieved both at Christchurch and in their lives since graduation.

Hall of Fame

ROGER MOORMAN '39 Sailor, Merchant Marine, Inventor of the Mobjack

Roger Moorman is revered in the international sailing community as a fiberglass pioneer who produced some of the nation’s first GRP sailboat hulls in the 1950s. Following his tour of duty as a second officer and Chief Gunnery officer in WWII, Roger pursued his desire to produce a superior performing boat. He designed wooden sailboats (Windmill, Raven) and ultimately designed and built the Mobjack, a 17-foot planing hull boat that was self-rescuing. The boat was double-hulled (with his singular, superior fiberglass design), unsinkable and the first self-bailing vessel. Even with these features, the Mobjack weighed nearly four hundred pounds less than other boats of similar size. This was revolutionary and made it a fast boat with superior safety attributes. Roger held patents in both England and Canada. His company, Mobjack Manufacturing, operated in the 1950s, 60s and 70s and produced over 900 Mobjacks. Moorman sold his company to Browning Arms Company in 1965. He also co-designed the Nomad and the Skipjack.
 
Roger attended the US Naval Academy, where he lettered in gymnastics. Though sailing was always his passion, as a Seahorse he also played football and baseball, and he was a student photographer. He died in 2012 at the age of 90.

WARD "BUCK" SCULL '61 Businessman, Daily Press Citizen-of-the-Year, Community Advocate

Ward “Buck” Scull is President of Virginia Transfer and Storage, a company that was founded in 1895 by his grandfather. When one of his employees approached him for help in digging out of a spiraling payday loan debt situation, Ward became increasingly concerned what he saw as the injustice of payday lending. Not only did he help his employee, but he went a step further and launched a campaign to limit the practice of payday loans. He started from scratch, learning how the legislative process works and becoming an increasingly effective advocate. After several years of his work, an APR cap of 36% was legislated. In other, quiet good works, Ward partnered with an archaeology professor from William & Mary to purchase Big Island, at the mouth of the York River, preserving it as a snapshot in time of the history of the men and women of the Guinea Marshes. In 2008, Ward was named Daily Press Citizen-of-the-Year in recognition of his commitment to a worthy cause and personal effort to improve the lives of others. The Virginia General Assembly would go on to commend him in a public resolution of respect for his hard work and community involvement.
 
As a Seahorse, Ward Scull was a monitor, editor of The Seahorse, and a senior warden.
He graduated from Duke University and University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.
