Greetings from the Hilltop!

     Following her appointment as the 12th Head of School by the Board of Trustees this morning, Alixe Callen began a full day of activities on the Hilltop. Students, faculty and staff packed Madeira Hall at 12:45 p.m. for the formal announcement to the school community, which included introductory remarks by Head of School Eric Peterson, Chair of the Search Committee Tad Van Norden ’84 and Chair of the Board of Trustees Leslie Heaney ’92. Ms. Callen received a standing ovation when she entered the theater accompanied by School Prefect Victoria Boatwright ’17 and Honor Board member Charlotte Grunebaum ’17. The video of the event is now posted on our website.
     In the afternoon, Ms. Callen toured the campus with students Beste Engin ’18 and Shane Conlon ’17 and visited classes in the new Academic Center (above with students Isabel Meyer ’17 and Margot Cannell ’17). She’ll attend the Service of Lessons & Carols in the chapel tonight and meet more teachers, staff and students tomorrow before heading back to Seattle on Sunday. Her tenure at St. George’s officially begins July 1, 2017.
