Keystone parent Floyd L. Wormley Jr. has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His election by his peers recognizes his “distinguished contributions to the field of medical mycology, immunology and host-pathogen interactions.”

He was formally inducted a few weeks ago at the association's annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

On the Keystone campus, he's perhaps better known as the dad of fifth-grader Zacharias and third-grader Faith, and the husband of Zina Wormley, the school's director of admissions and financial aid.

Dr. Wormley is a microbiologist by training, and he's a professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio's College of Sciences. His research in infectious disease could lead to new vaccines and treatments in the future.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science is the world's largest general scientific society.

Here's a press release from UTSA about his accolade.

Keystone parent Roshnic Latif presented her 6th annual fashion show, which featured Upper School students and brought out Keystone familes.

She's a fashion designer, and the show at the Oblate School of Theology featured her one-of-a kind pieces featuring her hand painted silks, ready-to-wear, and formal wear. This year, a trip to Japan inspired her hand-painted silks.

A portion of proceeds from her shows go to local nonprofits, and this year's show benefitted Child Advocates San Antonio.

The band TALK performed, and seven Keystone students served as models.
