Eagle Weekly Special Edition: Important Announcement
November 30, 2018
I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving with your family, enjoying some down time and a few too many desserts! This time of the year makes me reflect on many areas of my life in which I am thankful. One of those areas is with our school leadership. I am blessed to work with men and women who love the Lord and love your students.
Over the course of the past year one of my leadership team members, Dr. Billy Crow, and I have brainstormed a new opportunity for our school. It involves wrapping our biblical worldview program (K-12), chapels, outreach, activities and our new discipleship program into a new position we’d refer to as Director of Christian Life. As we continued to discuss how important this position will be for our student outcomes, Dr. Crow began to get very excited about potentially sliding from his position of Upper School Principal to the Director of Christian Life, a lateral move that still has leadership responsibilities. After much prayer and reflection we have decided this will be the best move for our school and for Dr. Crow. I’m very excited to see how Dr. Crow’s devotion to Christ, understanding of God’s word and love for students will impact our school in this new position.
Because of this planned move we will immediately begin looking for a new Upper School Principal. This will be a nationwide search committed to obtaining the best possible leader for our Upper School faculty, staff and students. If you or someone in your network knows of a godly man or woman with the necessary qualifications (love for Christ and others, experience and academic prowess) please don’t hesitate to notify me. There will be a job description posted sometime next week on our website. In the time being, as we conduct the full extent of our search, Dr. Crow will remain as our Upper School Principal continuing to work faithfully as he always has done. Our goal will be to have the new principal in place by August 2019. However, nationwide searches are extensive, so that time table could extend into next school year allowing us to find the right person.
We are very excited about this transition. There is no doubt God is at work here, not only with Dr. Crow as our soon to be new Director of Christian Life, but with whomever He shall lead to us as our new Upper School Principal. Your words of thankfulness to Dr. Crow and prayers for our new principal would be very welcomed. Have a great weekend and as always if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
