From Board Chair Danielle Ruthfield
Following a unanimous vote by the Evergreen Board of Trustees, I am thrilled to announce that Halsey Bell, Evergreen's current Upper Division Head, will become Evergreen's fourth Head of School, succeeding current Head Ronnie Codrington-Cazeau.
This transition will take place in July 2020, giving Ronnie and Halsey one school year to work together setting Evergreen's path going forward.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I want to thank Ronnie for her leadership and tireless commitment to Evergreen. Under her leadership and in partnership with the board, we have transformed our campus, implemented an ambitious five-year strategic plan, raised $20 million, quadrupled our endowment and received nine major commendations in our reaccreditation—an incredible testament to the strength of our school and community. We have grown in so many ways, yet have retained the essence of what makes Evergreen unique.
Halsey is a visionary leader who already has a deep understanding of the Evergreen community, along with exciting ideas for the future and a wealth of experience, both academic and administrative. We are all looking forward to continuing to work with him in his new capacity of head of school.
This is an exciting time for The Evergreen School, and I am looking forward to our future together.
Chair of The Evergreen School Board of Trustees
