Michael Eanes Interim Head of School
On July 1, Michael N. Eanes began his tenure as interim head of St. Andrew’s Episcopal School. A seasoned administrator with more than forty years of experience in independent schools, Michael has served as interim head at eight schools across the country. He is committed to helping St. Andrew’s carry out a smooth and effective transition following Lucy Nazro’s 32 years as Head of School. “I look forward to the opportunity to guide this transition so that St. Andrew’s is ready to welcome its next head,” said Michael. “Lucy Nazro is an extraordinary and beloved leader whose retirement leaves behind a grand legacy, a strong school, and a devoted community. In my previous posts, I have found that careful preparation and thoughtful planning by all constituencies sets the stage for the arrival of a new head of school. And it is a two-way process. We select the head, but the head must also select us. We want St. Andrew’s to attract the best and ablest candidates for the position; part of my job is to support the community as it undertakes this critical task. It will be a busy and exciting year for all of us.” Lucy Nazro will remain at St. Andrew’s as special counsel to the Board of Trustees. “We honor Lucy by continuing to be the best that we can be,” said Michael. “St. Andrew’s is a great school. I look forward to getting to know many of you as we work together in service to St. Andrew’s.” Michael most recently served as interim head of school at Heathwood Hall School in Columbia, SC, The Phillips Brooks School in Menlo Park, CA, Capitol Hill Day School in Washington, DC and six other schools. Prior to his career as an interim head, he was the Executive Director of the American Montessori Society, and for 12 years Headmaster of The Gunnery, a boarding school in Washington, CT. He and his wife Susan have two children, Laura, who lives in Connecticut with her husband and three children, and Christopher, who lives in Ohio, and was married this past December. 18 • St. Andrew’s Episcopal School • www.sasaustin.org
