John Rex community,
My official start date is soon approaching! In the meantime, the John Rex board has allowed me to jump in and become involved before the official start date.
I have two exciting announcements to share with you today.
First, it is my pleasure to announce Heather Zacarias will be starting a new charter school in Oklahoma City. The school is lucky to have her as their new Head of School. She will be greatly missed by the JRCS family!
Heather has been incredibly helpful to me and will continue to provide guidance during this transition period. She will officially support our John Rex community through July.
Next, I am thrilled to welcome Lana Ingram to the role of Director of Elementary Education at John Rex. She is currently serving as Dean of Students. We will begin the search for the right candidate to fulfill the role of Dean of Students immediately.
Lana brings a vast knowledge of elementary education, a great understanding of the JRCS community and historical knowledge to the position. Her leadership will provide continuity to this community as we move forward to open the 20-21 school year. Congratulations Lana, and welcome to your new role!
I will continue to keep you updated on John Rex throughout the summer and develop virtual opportunities for an initial meet and greet.
Best to you all. Enjoy your summer and I look forward to meeting you soon.
Incoming Head of School
