It has been a joy to begin meeting the community this past week. And while I am only just beginning to appreciate the many ways this school is important to the world, and indeed is so much more than simply a school, I already admire the leaders, stewards, and committed educators who have worked to make the Academy what it is today. It's humbling to be given the chance to continue building on what they have made, and to contribute to this next phase of the school's success."


在得知她的任命后,豪威尔博士说:“非常荣幸能够担任圣约翰博睿学院校长一职。在过去的一周里,很高兴与学院社区成员见面。虽然我才刚刚开始感受这所学校对世界的重要性,但我已经意识到它不仅仅是一所学校,我非常钦佩那些致力于使学院发展为今天这样的领袖和教育工作者。能有机会继续巩固他们的成就,并为学校下一阶段的成功做出贡献,我感到无比荣幸。”


Dr. Howell will begin her tenure as Headmaster in July 2020 at the end of current Headmaster Tom Lovett's 19-year tenure. Board President Jay Wright said, "Tom's contributions to our school are historic, and we will be celebrating his model leadership throughout the school year as we continue our important work of educating the children of St. Johnsbury, neighboring towns, and around the world."


豪威尔博士将在20207月现任校长汤姆·洛维特结束19年校长任期后开始担任校长。董事会主席杰伊·怀特说:“汤姆对我们学校的贡献是有历史性意义的,我们将在整个学年颂扬他的榜样领导力,带领我们继续教育圣约翰、邻近城镇以及世界各地的学生。”

All of these traits will hold her in good stead as our next Headmaster.

On top of that, in her writing and in her speech to the school community in Chapel, she demonstrated a love of young people and a deep optimism about their potential and futures, regardless of where they come from or where their interests lie. She embraced our diversity in all of its complexity and spoke specifically about those aspects that she loved. She shares our commitment to help people develop a healthy curiosity and engagement with the world and to come to belong to something bigger than themselves.


除此之外,在她的写作和她在学校礼堂的演讲中,她表现出了对年轻人的爱护,对他们的潜力和未来表现出积极乐观的态度,不管他们来自何方或他们的兴趣所在。她接受了学院的多样性、复杂性,并特别提到她感兴趣的方方面面。她和我们一样致力于帮助学生培养好奇心、鼓励学生与世界多接触,努力变成自己想要成为的人。
