Mary Beth Lennon, president of Mercy High School, is one of just 20 school leaders from around the world selected for this year’s Klingenstein Heads of Schools Program at Columbia University’s Teachers College. This fully funded fellowship brings together 20 school heads from independent schools in the United States together with international school leaders from Colombia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Tunisia, India, Japan, and Honduras to consider educational philosophy, leadership, and strategic innovation.
“This prestigious fellowship affirms the remarkable momentum that Mercy High School has experienced under Mary Beth Lennon’s leadership,” said Kevin Burke, chair of Mercy’s Board of Trustees. “The Board is delighted that Mary Beth will have the opportunity to join with other accomplished independent school leaders from around the world for intensive professional study, collaboration and reflection. The experience will prove invaluable as Mercy continues to be an innovative leader in girls education and a top choice for area families.”
