The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Crystal L. Trent as our next Head of School, to begin leadership on July 1, 2017. Ms. Trent knows Northstar Academy well through her work as Special Education Procedure Liaison for Chesterfield County Schools. A graduate of Douglas S. Freeman High School, Ms. Trent holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in special education, both from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has spent her entire career in education in the Richmond area. Her ties to our community were an important factor in the Board’s final decision.
The Board of Directors would like to thank the Search Committee, our consultants at Southern Teachers Agency, and all in our Northstar community for your commitment to this vital process. You have produced outstanding results and have drawn our school family even closer.
Finally, we wish to thank Dr. Patricia West for her thirteen years of extraordinary service to our school. Her leadership and her dedication to our mission, vision, and core values have improved Northstar Academy immeasurably. We will be forever in her debt. We look forward to celebrating her accomplishments in the coming months.
Please join us in welcoming Ms. Trent into our Northstar community.
