John Eagle and Joe Colonnetta, previously the chairman and vice-chairman of the Episcopal School of Dallas’ board of directors, will no longer serve in those capacities. Eagle announced the leadership changes in an email to parents earlier today.
According to the email, board members elected Plack Carr as chairman and Ken Schnitzer as vice-chairman during yesterday’s meeting. The changes will take effect in June.
Eagle has served as chairman since 2000, while Colonnetta took the vice-chairman position in the 2011-2012 school year. As has been customary for all the leadership changes enacted after a jury found the school liable for gross negligence and fraud in September, the letter made no mention of the verdict or the sexual assault of a student that preceded the lawsuit.
