Candidates should be successful private school leaders, preferably in Christian environments. They should be particularly adept at developing staff talents and delegating responsibility. Most of all, he or she must be an excellent communicator who listens attentively and enjoys speaking and praying with people over matters of importance to the school community.This gives us confidence that The Galloway School is returning to the Christian values James and Marie Galloway envisioned for the school when it was created. If there is any remaining doubt, note how the school describes its own guiding principles:
[TGS'] founding mission is to equip students with the Truth of God’s Word while developing their character, intellect, and potential to explore, create, challenge, and lead.TGS Watch interprets the return to the founding values of The Galloway School to mean that misconduct will no longer be tolerated or even condoned by the administration and board. TGS Watch applauds the new vision of The Galloway School which is actually the school's founding vision.
We certainly hope that the Board receives a great response and has many moral Christian candidates to choose from. TGS Watch doesn't know if the Board is considering current interim Head-of-School Debbie Stroud for the permanent position -- a position Ms. Stroud is certainly qualified for -- but it is clear that the TGS Board intends to conduct a professional and robust search as it selects a new leader to take The Galloway School to its full potential.
