As you may be aware, Dr. Cox and his wife have been called to serve an LDS temple mission in Mexico beginning in April. As a school, we wish them well in their retirement and we hope they enjoy their service in that beautiful part of the world. We especially wish to thank Dr. Cox for his years of service to Monticello.
As a result of his retirement, Mrs. Kim Coleman was appointed during the January meeting of the Monticello Academy Board of Trustees to succeed Dr. Cox as the executive director of Monticello Academy. Her official duties became effective upon his departure before Spring Break.
As the creator and founder of the school, Mrs. Coleman authored the school charter and she is deeply committed to the mission and the original vision of Monticello Academy. She has been working closely with Dr. Cox, Mr. Shino, and Mrs. Davis since early December to understand every aspect of our current operations and to enable a seamless transition. We are very grateful she was willing to accept this assignment and we are highly confident in her ability to oversee the whole school program and help us achieve the high expectations we have at Monticello Academy.
One of Mrs. Coleman’s first responsibilities this spring is to interview qualified candidates and hire a new school director (principal) for the next school year. Under her direction, this position will be primarily responsible for the execution of our academic programs, and to continually improve the day to day teaching and learning of our students. We anticipate the other members of the school administration team will remain in place through the end of the school year, and we express our gratitude for their continued service as well.
Feel free to take a moment to introduce yourself when you see Mrs. Coleman at the school. We look forward to great things in the years to come!
