PDS Names Hancock New Headmaster
Steven E. Hancock will take the reins in August as the new headmaster of Presbyterian Day School. Hancock comes to Memphis from being assistant head of school for academic leadership and head of the middle school at Princeton Day School in New Jersey. Before that, he was performing arts department chair for nine years at Westminster School in Atlanta. While at Westminster, Hancock was founding director of the Odyssey Atlanta program, a privately funded program that works with kindergarten through 12th-grade students in Atlanta's public schools. Princeton Day School and Westminster School are both independent, private, co-educational schools. Hancock comes to a campus that includes similar work across school-system boundaries: The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence, which is housed on the PDS campus, is a nonprofit professional development organization whose programs are open to teachers in public and private school systems in the region. Hancock was selected from a field of more than 80 applicants.

Meet Steven HancockOn February 7, 2014, the PDS Board unanimously appointed Steven E. Hancock as the 12th Headmaster of PDS.
After much prayer and deliberation and a unanimous recommendation by the Search Committee, the Board voted unanimously to appoint Steven E. Hancock to serve as the next Headmaster of Presbyterian Day School effective August 1, 2014. Steve, as he prefers to be called, and his wife Stephanie, are both deeply committed Christians. They have two children Emily (15) and Clay (12). For the last six years he has been serving as Head of Middle School at Princeton Day School (PDS). The "other PDS" is a prestigious K-12 school in New Jersey that dates back to 1899. At the "other PDS," Steve oversees forty eight faculty and the operations of this outstanding middle school. During his tenure at Princeton, Steve has been promoted from one of nine administrators to Assistant Head of School for Academic Leadership. He successfully led the school-wide effort to research and implement a 1-to-1 iPad program. Prior to Princeton Day School, Steve served for nine years at Westminster Schools in Atlanta, Georgia. He was Department Chair of the Performing Arts. Not only is Steve a successful school administrator, but he is also an accomplished musician, and ranked tennis player. One of his many accomplishments is particularly noteworthy: Steve created, designed, and implemented Odyssey Atlanta. He led the effort to raise the $750,000 a year needed to fund this program. Odyssey Atlanta partners with the Atlanta Public Schools to serve 250 students grades 3 - 12 from economically disadvantaged communities. During the early years, Steve raised support from Bill Gates and Warren Buffet for this groundbreaking organization that continues to this day. Steve is also a great student of education. To prepare for his visit to Memphis, he not only read everything he could find about PDS, but also about the Martin Institute and our Building Boys Making Men program. He also read Flight Plan and is now going through it with his son. During numerous conversations, Steve made clear reference to several areas of our school which he already fully grasped and, as we were to come to learn, fully embraced. Below are just a few of the comments made about Steve by key leaders at his previous schools: Steve is beloved…he has a deep, deep faith. It motivates his whole family. I think that is at the core of his integrity. You hear people say, 'My child wouldn't have gotten through school without Steve. …never had so many applications for Middle School…it is now the gem. Steve was a math prodigy. He was an Olympiad. Steve built a tremendous amount of trust among parents, faculty and the Board. He brings to the school (Princeton Day School) the knowledge of hiring and supervising faculty, developing a program, raising money, restructuring an administration, and managing a curriculum. He is the best fundraiser at Princeton Day School, and it goes back to trust. You could put Steve anywhere and he would be a beloved Head of School! Both of the Heads of School under whom Steve has served said that he is ready to take on the responsibilities of a school head. When the Committee asked him why he had not already pursued a Headmaster position, he said, "…because I have not felt called by the Lord until now."
