Dear St. Philips Community,
In these very busy days as we all prepare for our Christmas and holiday traditions and get ready to welcome a new year, the Board of Trustees is delighted to announce that we have embarked on the search for our next Head of School.
We have worked diligently over the past several months to prepare our beloved institution for the process and the new opportunities ahead. Much attention has been given to understanding what is needed, creating a vision for the future, and strengthening our governance model.
We have engaged a search consultant, Daniel Perron, of Perron and Company, to partner with us in this process. With a presence in Miami as well as New York and over 30 years of experience in executive search, Mr. Perron will be an asset to our search, and the Board is excited to work with him. We trust that together, we will find the best fit for St. Philip’s and a Head who will not only continue our beloved traditions, but who also possesses the passion, vision and skill set required to lead us into the future. The Board will serve as the Search Committee, while a small Search Working Group of the Board will oversee the details. The Search Working Group members are Joanie Stringer, Arturo Pedroso, Riley Smith, Andy Waibel and Reverend Conroy.
More detailed information will be available in January regarding ways for our entire community to support and provide input on the search process. Regular updates will appear in our weekly school newsletter and a tab on our website will be dedicated to all communication regarding the search.
We want to thank you for your support and interest as we travel down this road together.
The Board of Trustees
