Dr. John Mehaffey
We are pleased to announce the placement of Dr. John Mehaffey as our new Headmaster. Dr. Mehaffey comes to us with a doctorate from Auburn University in Educational Leadership and Administration and Supervision of Curriculum. He has served as the Head of School for both Chambers Academy and Hooper Acadmey. Dr. Mehaffey has been an instructor within the classroom and has held several leadership positions within the AISA. He is very excited to begin his tenure here at The Lakeside School. Upon accepting the position Dr. Mehaffey made the following statement,
"I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve as the next Headmaster of The Lakeside School. After a campus visit where I observed and interacted with the student body, I knew Lakeside is where I wanted to be. I look forward to working with all stakeholders to continue the legacy of excellence that was created over 50 years ago. There are great things happening at The Lakeside School, and I am thrilled to become a part of this vibrant school culture."
We are honored to have him as our new leader and cannot wait to begin the next chapter with Dr. Mehaffey at the helm. As always, our leadership is focused on the furtherance of our student's academic, athletic, and character development.
Thank you for your time and patience through this process,
