D. Scott Wiggins, who has served as interim Head of School at MMI Preparatory School since July of 2016, was appointed as the school’s Head of School by the MMI Board of Directors at a meeting on Thursday. The appointment takes effect immediately.
Wiggins has been serving as interim Head of School since former Head of School Thomas G. Hood stepped down to become Head of School at St. Agnes Academy-St. Dominic School in Tennessee.
At the direction of the Board of Directors, a search committee comprised of six current and former members of the board of directors, four of them having served as chairs of the board and all of them having graduated from MMI, managed the national search that resulted both in Wiggins’ appointment as interim Head of School, and his eventual appointment as Head of School.
Following his appointment, Wiggins said, “When I accepted the Interim Head of School position, it was with a one or two year window in mind. But, in the time I have been here, I have fallen in love with the school and the MMI community, which powered my desire to be considered for the position. I am humbled to have been chosen to continue to lead the MMI community into the future as the new Head of School and I welcome the opportunity with open arms.”
