Lee Palmer is Leaving Trinity

Lee is leaving Trinity at the end of the 2009-2010 academic year to move to Washington, D.C. where she has accepted the position of head of upper school at Sidwell Friends School. She will be rejoining her husband, who moved there during the summer to work for the Environmental Protection Agency. The text of her announcement follows:
Dear Upper School Faculty,

It has been an honor and a privilege to be a part of this extraordinary community for the past five and half years, and the news I am sharing with you is accompanied by bittersweet feelings. I have accepted the position of Upper School Principal at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. for the next school year. The prospect of rejoining my husband and many long-time friends, the opportunity to serve another wonderful school, and the chance for a new adventure are all extremely exciting, and I’m looking to the future with great anticipation. However, I will no longer have the benefit of daily interactions with dear friends and colleagues, students, and parents who have made my experience at Trinity so rewarding and so thrilling.
I will do everything in my power to make the transition to a new principal go as smoothly as possible. I am deeply grateful for all that Trinity has given me, and will miss everyone. Thank you for your support, for your kindness, and for all that I have learned from you.
With much love,
