New BACS Principal starting 7-1-2014

I am very happy to announce that Greg Henderson was affirmed as the next principal of the Bryn Athyn Church School and Preschool at a special meeting of the Bryn Athyn Church Board last night. I look forward to working with him as he prepares for and enters into this important leadership role.

Greg was chosen from a group of strong candidates. As you well know, he brings extensive knowledge and experience of the Bryn Athyn Church School. He has taught the 8th grade boys starting in the 1997-1998 school year. His teaching ability is recognized and respected. He has the strong support of faculty – with a number of them approaching him asking that he apply for this position. His leadership as the head teacher of the upper grades and of the Program Committee from last spring on into this fall have been well appreciated. He looks forward to serving the school and supporting a strong commitment to New Church education. He has been accepted to an Educational Leadership Masters Program at Arcadia University.

I am grateful to the committee that provided counsel on the applicants.
