CHESTERTOWN — Nancy Mugele, Head of the Kent School, an­nounced that Melissa Haber has joined Kent School’s ad­min­is­tra­tive team as the Di­rec­tor of Fi­nance and Op­er­a­tions. Haber fills the po­si­tion va­cated by the re­tir­ing Busi­ness Man­ager Don Sul­li­van. Haber comes to Kent School from In­dian Creek School in Crownsville.

Mugele said, “We are for­tu­nate to find a can­di­date as uniquely qual­i­fied as Melissa. In her time at In­dian Creek she was the As­so­ci­ate Di­rec­tor of Fi­nance and Op­er­a­tions and then the Di­rec­tor of Ad­mis­sions. She is fa­mil­iar with many facets of the daily op­er­a­tion of an in­de­pen­dent school. She also brings work­ing knowl­edge of school soft­ware systems that will help en­sure a seam­less tran­si­tion.”

In her role, Haber will man­age the over­all school bud­get, man­age hu­man re­source pro­cesses, over­see fa­cil­ity main­te­nance and man­age Kent School’s trans­porta­tion pro­gram.

Haber said, “I am very ex­cited to be­come a part of the Kent School com­mu­nity. I felt a sense of wel­come as soon as I stepped on the cam­pus. I am ea­ger to share my school and busi­ness ex­pe­ri­ence and pas­sion for ed­u­ca­tion with ev­ery­one at Kent School.”

Haber re­ceived her B.S. in Busi­ness Man­age­ment from The Univer­sity of South Carolina. She earned her M.S. in Ed­u­ca­tion from Johns Hop­kins Univer­sity with a fo­cus in ed­u­ca­tional leadership, data-based de­ci­sion mak­ing and or­ga­ni­za­tional im­prove­ment.

Mugele said, “I know the en­tire Kent School com­mu­nity joins me in wel­com­ing Melissa to Kent School. We both bring dif­fer­ent in­de­pen­dent school ex­pe­ri­ences to our po­si­tions and I look for­ward to col­lab­o­rat­ing with her to ben­e­fit ev­ery stu­dent, fam­ily and em­ployee at Kent.”

Kent School is an in­de­pen­dent school serv­ing chil­dren from Pre-K through Grade 8 and is lo­cated in Chestertown. Kent School’s mis­sion is to guide stu­dents in re­al­iz­ing their po­ten­tial for aca­demic, artis­tic, ath­letic, and moral ex­cel­lence.
