New Assistant Director of Academic Advising and Guidance

Monday, June 5, 2023

After a thorough job search, we are pleased to announce that Ms. Megan Wright has accepted our offer to be the Academy’s next Assistant Director of Academic Advising and Guidance! Meg stepped up this semester to help out in an ‘interim’ role and has done a wonderful job. The work she has done identifying seniors missing credits, proposing plans for those seniors, and being proactive in identifying returning sophomores/juniors needing support is stellar. The search committee is confident that Meg is the right person for this job and we all look forward to what she will bring to this position next year.

Thanks go out to the search committee of Dr. Joel Olufowote, Ms. Casey Schultz, Ms. Kim Foltz, Ms. Kim Hall, and Ms. Candy Manship for the hard work they put in the past few weeks.

This leaves open a current math position. An attempt will be made to fill the position before August and Kim Foltz has already worked with the math department to begin the initial steps. In the event a quality candidate is not found in this search, a backup plan will be in place for August.
