Mr. Wade Heigle is joining the Escambia Academy family to work with Headmaster David Walker to transition into the Headmaster role.

By | Newsletter

Dear Escambia Academy Family Members, Teachers and Staff

We are delighted to announce Mr. Wade Heigle is joining the Escambia Academy family to work with Headmaster David Walker to transition into the Headmaster role. David will mentor Wade in the accreditation process since we are up for AISA accreditation during the 2017-2018 school year. At the end of the school year David will assume a teaching position on staff. We hope David will be with us many years to come.

Wade’s first day is today, Monday, November 28. He will be meeting with the faculty and staff after school for introductions. We will be conducting a meet and greet event in the upcoming weeks. However, if you see Wade around the campus, be sure to welcome him to the school.

Wade comes highly recommended, bringing new ideas for growing and improving EA. He has great enthusiasm for working with the parents and staff. Wade has worked for many years as Headmaster in multiple private schools in Mississippi and Louisiana and without exception, Wade has dramatically improved the educational and financial health of each school he has overseen.

Thank you for joining us in welcoming Wade and his wife Jodi to the EA family.
