I must have missed the news that Polly Peterson has announced her resignation as head of the Winston School. But she apparently shared that development last October, according to a statement I just received from Winston. Said statement reveals that Rebbie Evans has been appointed the Pamela K. Murfin Head of School, because Peterson is moving on to the Chase Collegiate School this summer.
Evans has been at Winston since 1981. She started out as a teacher, and her current position is assistant head of school.
“Ms. Evans is in a unique position to understand the past, know the present and to direct the future of the Winston School,” board chair Melissa Stewart said. “We are particularly thrilled that the outcome of the efforts of the Transition Committee is that ‘one of our own,’ a treasured member of the Winston School community for 33 years, is the best candidate for this position.”
