The search for a new Head of School continues to progress according to the plan developed by our professional recruiting firm and the Headmaster search committee. On Monday, August 24, the Headmaster Search Committee met to finalize the headmaster opportunity profile. The Opportunity profile will help our search firm identify candidates with the experience and characteristics that align with the culture of our school. After considerable input from so many of you and significant work by the Headmaster Search Committee and our search firm, the Dingman Company, the Headmaster Opportunity Profile is complete and has been released.

This candidate profile is now available to everyone and is posted on the Dingman Company website.

Thank you to all the school community members (parents, faculty, staff, and board members) who gave input and contributed to this profile. The focus groups and individual interviews were essential in developing this document. The resulting candidate profile is comprehensive and ready to be used nationally to recruit the next headmaster at Dominion.

The search process is progressing as planned. Yet we need to keep bathing it in prayer. As we come to the end of August, we need you to be intentionally praying for the search committee, the process, and the next headmaster. You can commit to specific prayer days by emailing Chuck Whittaker. The Headmaster Prayer Calendar is on our website and you can see which days remain open.

Thank you for your willingness and diligence as we petition our God for the right person to lead the school.
