Search Update | Summer 2021

Elizabeth Eisold Blaylock ’80

Dear Putney Community,

As the academic year comes to a close, I’d like to offer a brief update on where things stand in our search for Putney’s next head of school.

First, the search committee wishes to thank all the members of the Putney community who participated in our outreach sessions, and those who wrote and called with their feedback on what qualities Putney’s next head of school should have. These conversations were useful and necessary. The search firm was impressed with the quality of insight our community brought to the conversation.

Our consultants, Storbeck Search, are now actively speaking with candidates. The search is attracting the interest of many outstanding candidates who are interested in Putney. Over the summer, the search committee has been interviewing candidates, and we expect to invite the finalists to campus this fall, before making a final recommendation to the Board of Trustees.

We deeply appreciate your engagement with this process. I hope you will continue to share your questions and concerns.
