The Next Chapter: Message from the Board

I am Rev. Alison Miller, and I am honored to serve as Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Starr King School for the Ministry.

As many of you know, earlier this month our president, Rev. Rosemary Bray McNatt, shared that this next year will be her last year at Starr King. While we are saddened by her upcoming departure, the overwhelming feeling of everyone on the board has been immense gratitude for Rosemary’s decade of extraordinary leadership.

Of course, Rosemary’s departure next year also means that Starr King is about to embark on an important transition in the leadership of the school. Among other things, transitions provide key moments of reflection – of where we have been, where we are now, and where we seek to go next. As a board, we have spent the past several weeks reflecting on Starr King’s vision and the strength of our school.

As a result of that reflection, I am pleased to share that the Board of Trustees has unanimously affirmed that we are prepared to go into search for the next president of Starr King.

That we are ready for this search is a testament to the exemplary work and commitment of our staff and faculty, and of the dedication of our students.

This is an exciting moment at Starr King. However, before we begin this search, there is still more work we on the board need to do first. We still need to figure out the right questions to ask to help us determine our best way forward in this search. In the coming weeks and months, we will share regular updates about our next steps as we begin this important work.

If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to email future@sksm.edu.

We are entering a pivotal moment in the life of the school. Transitions are a time of both uncertainty and possibility. We have much work ahead of us in the next year. And I am confident that together we can embrace this moment of change, advance Starr King’s vision, and build upon the strength of this school and our community as we write this next chapter of Starr King.
