Recently, Capt Fine informed the Farragut Board of Directors that he had been advised to take a much-needed leave of absence due to some health concerns. Because of the unprecedented times we are experiencing, the Board did not want the Headmaster position to remain vacant during Capt Fine’s absence. The Board has retained an Interim Head of School, COL Donna Brazil to serve until Capt Fine returns in mid-November.
Exciting things are happening at Admiral Farragut Academy. From facilities upgrades to personnel shifts, the school is preparing for the 2020-21 year. One preparation includes a major change in the Lower School: Anita Fine, the long-time Lower School Head, is retiring. Stepping in to replace her as the Interim Head of Lower School is veteran leader Jennifer Grabowski, now entering her 25th year at Farragut.
