Congratulations to Assistant Head of School for the Gates Mills Campus Kim Samson on her recent appointment as the head of school at Beaver Country Day School in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, effective July of 2020. Kim will continue to serve Hawken in her current role through the 2019-2020 school year.
Hawken Head of School Scott Looney shared the “bittersweet" news with the school community earlier this evening, highlighting Kim's accomplishments during her tenure at Hawken. Read Scott’s announcement to learn more about Kim’s contributions to Hawken as well as the next steps the administration is taking to identify the person best aligned with Hawken’s mission and direction to lead the Upper School into a new decade.
We wish Kim all the best as she completes her final year at Hawken and transitions into this new venture in suburban Boston!
