This is a press release that just came from Villa Duchense and Oak Hill School.
The Board of Trustees for Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School is pleased to announce Elizabeth Miller as the next Head of School, effective July 1, 2013.
Miller is currently Upper School Head at Hutchison School, an all girls’ school (age 2-grade 12) founded in Memphis in 1902. She previously served as a faculty member and registrar for Pace Academy, developing an Asian History curriculum for the independent K-12 school in Atlanta.
Miller was called to independent school education in 2002 after a successful career in international business. She managed multi-million dollar accounts for AT&T and conducted business negotiations throughout Asia. Miller is fluent in Japanese and holds a Master’s Degree in Regional Studies East Asia from Harvard University.
Miller said, “After nearly a decade in international business in successive roles, I discovered what I had intuitively known long before—I wanted to be where I belonged—in education. Independent school education has since become my life’s vocation.”
Miller will succeed Sr. Lucie Nordmann. Sr. Nordmann has served as Head of School since 2009 and will join a sister school in Grand Coteau, Louisiana this summer as Director of Advancement.
