The St. Paul’s School named Dr. Edward Trusty Jr. as the interim head of the School for Boys, president Jeff Huang announced in a letter today.
The private school in Baltimore County started a search committee with the intention of finding a permanent replacement to start in the spring, but the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic complicated the search, Huang wrote.
Trusty will serve in the interim role for the 2020-21 and 2021-22 school years.
A Baltimore native and alumnus of the Gilman School, Trusty most recently served as the interim head of the The Kinkaid School in Houston. He’s held various administrative roles at the school since 2014.
Prior to that, he served as the head of the lower school of the Calvert School in Baltimore. He previously served on the faculty of Gilman for 13 years, teaching fourth grade and coaching varsity football.
“The opportunity to join the St. Paul’s community while returning home to our family and friends and reengaging in service to the Baltimore community is, indeed, a blessing for my family and me,” Trusty said in a statement. “I am honored and look forward to wearing the blue and gold proudly.”
Huang praised Trusty’s work at Kinkaid, saying he helped the staff’s professional development, successfully finished a capital campaign and added initiatives focused on inclusivity.
And he noted that Trusty increased enrollment and updated the curriculum while at the Calvert School.
After graduating from Gilman, Trusty went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in teaching at the University of Virginia and a doctorate in education at Morgan State University.
While at St. Paul’s, Trusty will be tasked with transitioning the upper school into a new building and developing a We Are St. Paul campaign.
In his letter, Huang thanked the outgoing headmaster, David Faus, for “seven years of strong and steady leadership.”
The school will soon announce events–virtual and in-person–to introduce families to Trusty and his wife, Dynell.
