Welcome Back, Jenny Chandler!

September 19, 2017

We are delighted to welcome back a familiar face to CA this fall. Jenny Chandler, who previously served as Concord Academy’s dean of faculty, has returned to CA in a new role, centennial campaign officer. In her new role, Jenny will focus on capturing, developing, and articulating the strategic vision for the school’s fundraising goals. From building relationships with CA graduates, parents, trustees, and friends through wide-ranging initiatives, to supporting colleagues in delivering on CA@100 goals, Jenny will play a vital role in helping the Office of Advancement and Engagement achieve its near-term and long-range engagement and fundraising goals. In addition to making new connections, Jenny looks forward to reconnecting with colleagues, CA families, and students. She is delighted to continue her association with CA and to share the CA story more broadly.

When the Convocation program began, themes of individuality and community dominated the speakers’ addresses — about the promise of new beginnings, opportunities for individualized learning, CA’s guiding principle of common trust, and the importance of friendship.
