Hit F8 multiple times (5, I think), until it goes beyond a paragraph.
F8 2x-selects word
3x-selects sentence
4x-selects paragraph
5x-selects section (text and following section break selected)

PS. Just discovered that Word can't recognize the difference between St.
Lucia in a sentence and an actual sentence. Hmmm. Any way to get around
that?

The following macro will select the section that the cursor is in

Sub SelectSection()
ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("\section").Range.Select
End Sub
