Lynn worked closely with admissions to manage the transition better between the Middle and Upper Schools. Within four years enrollment grew by 19 percent.

At Davidson College, she earned a bachelor’s degree in Art History while playing NCAA Division I Lacrosse. She went on to earn two masters degrees in education, one in art education from The Ohio State University, and a second in private school leadership from the prestigious Teachers College at Columbia University. She taught and coached at the Brookwood School in Georgia, and at Charlotte Country Day School in North Carolina. Please RSVP to Melissa Kuhl at or 419-381-1313 x114.
