Our goal from the beginning was to fill the Interim position with a person who professes faith in Christ, is a consummate professional, has experience with same sex elementary education, and can be a bridge to the arrival of our permanent Headmaster. Many of you will know Cathy from her 27 years at PDS and recognize that she embodies the qualities for which we have been searching. For some, she will be a new face and we are excited for you to meet and get to know her. While at PDS Cathy was a teacher, Chief Information Officer and spent 17 years on the leadership team. She possesses extensive knowledge of what makes PDS special and loves PDS! Please join me in welcoming Cathy back to the PDS team.
While filling the Interim position is not the Search Committee’s primary calling, it is an important position that gives PDS the greatest flexibility to find the best candidate for the permanent Headmaster role. Many thanks to the faculty, staff, and parents who have provided valuable opinions and feedback on what PDS needs most in its next Headmaster via the in person meetings as well as the recent survey. As our search continues, a more detailed update will soon be posted.
The Board of Trustees is confident and excited about what the future holds for PDS. We remain committed to helping PDS proceed with excellence in all we do. Thank you for your trust and your support of our school.
Please reach out with any questions.
On Behalf of the Search Committee,
Michael Stockburger, Chairman
