Dear Independence Community,

I am overjoyed and honored to be named your next Head of School. From the moment I stepped onto the stunning campus, there was a connection to this most special place of learning. My visit to Indy was both invigorating and affirming. After every interaction, the passion and love for the school was palpable and on full display.
