Staffing Changes in the US Office

The Upper School Office will sport a new look this fall for the first time in a decade.  Lydia Maier, who has been the Upper School Dean of Students, has taken on a school-wide role as Dean of Student Affairs. In that role, she will be working across the divisions, including the Upper School, and will continue to be an Upper School advisor. Cathie Connors, who has been the Upper School Assistant, is now the Upper School Dean of Students. Holly Khiel, who has been the Assistant Director of Admissions at Bennington College, is now the Upper School Assistant. As communicated last spring, John Thurston, formerly the Associate Dean of Admissions at Bowdoin College, is now the Director of College Counseling. Holly will also be assisting John and Breda White with college counseling. Students and parents are encouraged to introduce themselves to Holly and John and to congratulate Lydia and Cathie on their new jobs.
