Earlier this school year, Dr. John L. Singleton, Jr. notified the Board of Trustees of Brandon Hall School that this would be his last at Atlanta’s only college preparatory boarding school.

The Board has appointed Johnny O. Graham as Interim Head of School.

Graham, who has been with Brandon Hall since 2011, has 16 years of experience at several nationally recognized independent boarding and day schools as a teacher, coach and administrator along with his most recent role as Associate Head of Brandon Hall School.

“I am honored by the opportunity to serve our innovative community. The culture of knowledge, compassion, inclusion and awareness at Brandon Hall makes it a notable paradigm of 21st Century education,” Graham said. “I am confident that we have a significant opportunity to honor the school’s history and traditions, appreciate its current achievements, and capitalize on its potential.”

Singleton has served as Head of School since 2010. He will award his final diploma in May.
