Our Story

Centered around the University of Virginia, Charlottesville holds unprecedented intellectual diversity for a city of its size. Thus, it serves as the perfect platform to discuss the issues within our modern society. The completion of St. Anne's-Belfield School's Grisham Hall opened the door to the Greenway Symposium. 

Since the spring of 2015, a group of high school students has worked to locate a fascinating slate of speakers. On December 10th 2016, over 130 community members gathered at Grisham Hall and kick-started the very first annual Greenway Symposium. Attendees interacted with the five speakers who shared their life stories and service to the larger community. A post-event survey confirmed that the 2016 event was a resounding success.
