Battle Ground Academy is hosting the official installation of Will Kesler, a native of Chattanooga, as its 14th Head of School, on Friday, 8:30 a.m. at the school’s Cherry Sports Center. The event is open to the public.
“We are looking forward to kicking off the next 125 years of BGA with Will at the helm,” said Eddie Lunn, chairman of BGA’s Board of Trustees. “We are confident that his vision for the school will sustain BGA’s long-standing tradition as one of the premiere independent schools in Middle Tennessee.”
Mr. Kesler officially started as Head of School in June. The installation serves as his official
introduction to BGA students, friends and families, as well as the greater-Williamson County community.
Attendees will include elected officials, heads of other Tennessee independent schools and community leaders.
“I am proud to be associated with such an outstanding school and incredibly humbled by the opportunity to be the next Head of School at BGA,” said Mr. Kesler. “This installation is about the start of the next chapter in BGA's long history as a highly-respected pillar of Middle Tennessee’s educational community.”
There will be a coffee reception following the installation. The Cherry Sports Center is located on BGA’s Glen Echo Campus at 336 Ernest Rice Lane in Franklin, Tn. Established in 1889, Battle Ground Academy is a coeducational, college preparatory school for grades kindergarten through 12th grade.
