Weston Halberstadt competed on the team from 2011-2016 while studying Physics and Education. While competing, Weston also served on the team's executive board, from 2012-2015, acting as Vice President, Treasurer, and Public Relations Director. As an education student, Weston spent a lot of time working with younger members on the team, helping them achieve their full potential. His senior year, he lead one of the three KU ORC’s qualifying teams, and competed at that year’s National Championship.
After graduating, Weston worked for a year teaching Physics in Kansas City, and continued to coach the team. Nothing made him prouder than to again see the team qualify to the National Championship. The growth of the team over the six years he worked with them is one of his proudest accomplishments.
Now Weston is living and teaching physics in Quito, Ecuador at Colegio Menor. He misses the team terribly, and would love to get an email from anyone with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
