Pinkerton headmaster search is down to two
The two candidates are Christine Heine, head of Upper School at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia, and Griffin Morse, head of School Year Abroad in Spain, said Chip Underhill, executive director of public relations and external affairs.
The search began after Headmaster Mary Anderson said in the spring that she would be retiring at the end of the 2014 school year, marking nearly four decades at the academy.
From the outset, trustee Kimberly Smith said the search firm promised trustees two things: We promise you an international search, and we promise a tough decision, Smith said trustees were told by the firm.
During the search, many educators with broad international and national public, private and independent school experience have taken a look at Pinkerton and been amazed by the school and its facilities, Smith said.
Smith said trustees plan to have their selection in place before Anderson retires.
