Classes resume in a month and Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy is looking for a new Head of School.

Christopher Hayes, who had been with the school for the past two years, handed in his resignation this past week.

Hayes’ tenure was marked by last year’s controversial firing of popular cross country and track coach, Doug Butler, which revealed a major rift between the school’s leadership and parents. The backlash included a demonstration by parents and students in front of the school and an advertisement taken out in Florida Today which mourned the loss of the school’s traditional core values which could only be seen as a direct shot at the administration.

That leadership has now changed on several fronts.

The school announced a new group of officers have been elected to the Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy’s Board of Trustees.

The new officers are Dana Kilborne (Board Chair), Drew Rector (Vice Chair), Patricia Dial (Treasurer) and Summit Shah (Secretary).

Holy Trinity spokesperson Brandy Bean said the school will look to name an interim Head of School before the new school year begins on Aug. 19.

After the interim replacement for Hayes is named, there will be a search for a permanent Head of School.
