The St. Johnsbury Academy Board of Trustees has selected Dr. Sharon Howell to succeed Thomas Lovett as the school’s Headmaster, effective July 1, 2020. The full Academy Board confirmed the Search Committee’s recommendation of Dr. Howell in a unanimous vote on Saturday.
Board President Jay Wright called her appointment “the beginning of an exciting new chapter in Academy history. Sharon will build on the strong legacy of Tom Lovett, Bernier Mayo, and the 22 other headmasters who have preceded her at the Academy. Her intelligence, character, and humanity are inspiring, and we look forward to her presence in our school community.”
