Rev. Aaron Anderson named Head of School at Logos Academy
York, PA (23 June 2014) –
The Logos Academy Board of Directors is proud to welcome longstanding board member and community leader Reverend Aaron Anderson as Chief Executive Officer/Head of School at Logos Academy, effective July 1.
“Aaron’s leadership, communication skills, community involvement and commitment to the Logos vision make him a natural choice for this role, as chief advocate for our unique brand of Christ-centered, intercultural, community-focused and classical education,” said Brooke Say, President of Logos Academy’s board of directors.
Logos Academy will continue in its mission to provide all children with an excellent education with these key values. The School demonstrated its commitment to the city with a $9 million investment in its West King Street facility. Currently serving approximately 270 students, Logos Academy is uniquely positioned to address the educational crisis in Pennsylvania. In welcoming Rev. Anderson, the school will continue building a legacy for the future as it aims to add 200 students in the next 10 years.
Rev. Anderson has shown leadership and entrepreneurship through his involvement with the York City Redevelopment Authority and the YMCA, as well as his role as the founding pastor of City Church, where he has served since 2009. He and his wife, Gail, live in York City and have six children, four of whom attend Logos Academy.
“I believe that Logos Academy is on the cusp of an amazing adventure as we move into the next stage of our journey with Aaron Anderson at the helm,” said Connie Rae, co-founder of Logos Academy. “He is a uniquely gifted man of integrity, vision, enthusiasm and love for Logos Academy and the people of our diverse and beautiful York community.”
Co-founder Traci Foster added her enthusiastic support as well: “Aaron’s leadership skill set, fueled by his love for Christ and community, are a beautiful fit for Logos.”
As Head of School, Rev. Anderson will also further Logos’ mission to build a sustainable educational model through Logos Enterprises, a low-profit, limited liability company (L3C) that aims to provide employment opportunities for student families and community members through creative revenue streams.
“Logos Academy is uniquely suited to address the needs of our community and the demand in the market for excellent education,” Rev. Anderson said. “I am proud to lead Logos as it works to build a positive, stable community in York.”
