“We are fortunate to have and individual of this caliber join our school,” said Greg Brashears, President of the NVS Board. “Steven’s wealth of experience heading independent schools, his life-long commitment to education, and his experience with special education programs were all considerations during our selection process. The appointment of Steven to this position is the logical next step for our Board as we continue to develop an independent non-religious school serving grades 6 through 12.”
