Jay Stroud, 67, headmaster of Tabor Academy for the past 23 years, announced his retirement, effective next June 30. A search committee has begun hunting for a successor, and Stroud said a new headmaster would be in place by this fall. He is the eighth headmaster in the private prep school’s 135-year history. In a letter to alumni, Stroud said that during his tenure, more than 3,000 students have been in his charge and he pointed to the accomplishments of the school in that time, calling it a “team effort” that included building or renovating entities such as the Fish Center, marine science lab, and math/science center. – Paul Kandarian/Boston Globe 7/31/2011
Tabor…great prep school. Amazing campus on Sippican Harbor. A notable Tabor alumnus is former BU hockey player and current inspiring speaker, Travis Roy.
Judging from this video, the next headmaster at Tabor has some pretty big shoes to fill. Good luck Mr. Stroud.
