We are very excited to announce that in June of 2018 Glenn DeLaney will assume the position of Director of The Outdoor Academy. Glenn has many ties to Western North Carolina including working in a local summer camp and graduate work at Appalachian State University. Glenn is currently completing his Ed.M. in School Leadership at Harvard School of Education after years of teaching in both a boarding school in Vermont and an independent day school in Raleigh, NC.
While it is going to be very hard to say “farewell for now” to Roger Herbert come June, we are honored to have someone with such a depth of experiences in schools, camps and wilderness programs coming in to pick up the reins for our school. Throughout the interview process Glenn impressed us with his excitement for our mission, his vision, joyfulness and practical skills to do this very important job and do it well. Glenn and his wife Julia and baby Elem are going to bring so much to our community.
