Keynote Speaker

Our guest speaker was retired Navy Captain Robert “Bob” Caldwell, a 1977 graduate of Albemarle High School. Bob is widely believed to be the only Albemarle graduate who spent his senior year in London, England.  His Dad was transferred to England at the end of his junior year. Despite wanting to stay and finish his football, track and academic career at Albemarle, Bob had to move to London Central High School for his senior year. 

According to Wikipedia, graduates of London Central included a couple of astronauts, three generals, a judge, and founders of the band America who brought us hits like Muskrat Love and A Horse With No Name!, but Bob wanted to graduate from Albemarle, and Mr. Hurt took some extraordinary steps to make that happen. 

After graduation, Bob Joined the US Navy, but eventually returned to Charlottesville and received a Nuclear Engineering degree from UVA. After a distinguished career as a “Navy Nuke”, he is currently the Director of Engineering and Infrastructure, Office of New Reactors at the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
