“It has been a great honor to serve as President of The Seattle School,” stated Dr. Detweiler. “While I am reluctant to leave this community, I am confident in its leadership to continue the important work of collaboratively and creatively making meaningful progress on the journey to advance the mission and long-term sustainability of The Seattle School in faith and service to God and neighbor.”
