Ladies and Gentlemen, all the way from Salt Lake City - it's Max Roach!! Last fall the Board of Trustees selected Max to serve as our next Headmaster at Rivermont Collegiate. Max earned a master's degree in Educational Management and Innovation from Western Governors University. He has previously served as the Head of School for Jackson Hole Community School and the Upper School Director at Darlington School. While in Salt Lake City, he currently fulfills many functions for Aikido Mountain West, an organization that promotes traditional Japanese arts and ways.
Mr. Roach and his family will be attending the Academic Fair tonight. He is looking forward to seeing the various projects and meeting the students and parents of the Rivermont family. Three of his four sons are school-age children and will be joining us for Ski-Bowl Day tomorrow. Welcome to Aidan, Porter, and Charlie. Little Henry (8 months old) will have to wait a bit before joining in the fun.
Next Tuesday's Evening with the Headmaster will be a special treat. I will be sharing with you briefly about next year's academic calendar and highlighting some of the key events. (That's not really the special part.) Moreover, Mr. Roach will be addressing the audience to introduce himself, share his educational philosophy, and answer any questions that you may have. This will be a great opportunity to meet our new Headmaster and give him a warm Rivermont welcome.
