Henderson Collegiate Is Excited to Announce New Leaders for the Pride!

Dear Henderson Collegiate Families,

As we gear up for another great school year, Mrs. Sanchez and I are very excited to share with you some leadership transitions that will be happening at our schools.

As you know, at Henderson Collegiate, we have always been very intentional about cultivating our own homegrown leadership. We invest in our teachers to grow them as teachers, people, and leaders.

For the coming school year, we are proud to announce that all three of our Henderson Collegiate School Principals will be examples of talented, homegrown leaders who each started their careers with us here at Henderson Collegiate. For the 2019-20 school year, alongside our Elementary School Principal, Ms. Ashley Johnson, Mrs. Melanie Johnson will be the Principal of the Middle School, and Mr. Taro Shigenobu will be the Principal of the High School.

Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Shigenobu joined our team and family through the Teach for America with Mrs. Johnson teaching 6th grade Reading and Mr. Shigenobu teaching 4th grade Nonfiction Studies. Through their time with us, Henderson Collegiate is proud of the way that both Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Shigenobu have gone above and beyond to show their love for their kids, to work as partners with all of our families, and to build meaningful relationships with students, families and staff, all while setting our students up to be academically successful. Through the work that they have done with our organization, it is clear that Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Shigenobu both want more for our students, families and staff, and we have no doubt that they will take every opportunity to do more for our mission.

Mrs. Johnson has voiced her own excitement about her new role as Middle School Principal: “I am honored to be the Principal of our Middle School and work with students, families, and staff members even more closely than ever before. I am excited for this new level of partnership and to see all that comes with it.”

Mr. Shigenobu expressed similar excitement in taking on the High School Principal role: “I am excited to be Principal because I am passionate about the mission of Henderson Collegiate, and am ready to fulfill the promises we made to our incredible students… I am eager to work with the Prides once again this year in a new capacity and to see them change the world.”

With this change, we are especially proud to share with you that both Mr. Olsen, our former High School Principal, and Mr. Terranova, our former Middle School Principal, will remain at Henderson Collegiate in new roles. This year, Mr. Terranova will take on the role of Principal Manager, supporting Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Shigenobu in their new roles and overseeing our school’s priorities. Mr. Olsen will take on the role of Director of College Counseling to complete our college counseling department and to help us act on the important lessons learned with our Trailblazing Pride of 2019 this past year.

After graduating our first class and completing our K-12 school, having Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Shigenobu join Ms. Johnson in leading our extraordinary school teams ensures that Henderson Collegiate will reach new heights during the 2019-20 school year. Thank you for being a part of our team and family, for trusting us with your loved ones, and as always, for supporting the Pride.
