The Trinity School announced Joseph "Joe" P. Marshall as its next Head of School. He will officially step into the position on July 1, 2013.
Marshall has been an educator at The Orchard School in Indianapolis for the last 15 years, and he is currently their Head of School.
Before The Orchard School, Marshall educated students for nine years at his alma mater, Friends Academy in Locust Valley, NY. Before that, he spent eight years at Holland Hall School in Tulsa, OK.
According to a release on the school's website, "The Board of Trustees is deeply impressed by Joe’s management experience combined with his profound understanding of how today’s students learn, lead, and serve in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. Following a thorough and national search to identify the School’s next leader, the Search Committee and the Board of Trustees enthusiastically endorsed Joe’s candidacy and voted unanimously in favor of his appointment."
Marshall was selected by the school's Search Committee, which spent months reviewing about 135 resumes from "impressive educational leaders throughout the world" before appointing Marshall to step in as Stephen Kennedy's successor.
He will be joined here by his wife, Maria, also a passionate educator who currently teaches high school math at the Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School. The couple has two sons: Blake, a research assistant and Ph.D. candidate in Electrical Engineering at Georgia Tech, and Austin, a recent graduate of Indiana University with a finance degree and a job at Baldwin & Lyons, Inc.
“I am equally honored and excited to become a member of the Trinity School community as its next Head of School," Marshall stated in the release.
