Gary Krahn, head of school for the past eight years at Trinity Valley School in Fort Worth, will leave his position in May 2015 when he and his wife Paula will move to California to be closer to her aging parents. Krahn has accepted a position as head of school at La Jolla Country Day in La Jolla, Calif. The announcement was made to the Trinity Valley School board of trustees Sept. 11, and faculty, staff, parents, students and other friends of the school on Sept. 12, according to Jeff Farmer, vice president of the Trinity Valley board of trustees. “Timing is never perfect for such changes,” said Farmer, “We support Dr. Krahn in his decision. He has been an important part of the Trinity Valley School family…His flair for innovation and ability to empower the team have further positioned the faculty and administration to move forward to continue with our mission.”

An advisory committee will assist the TVS executive committee of the board during the transition. The committee consists of Kim McGartland Medley, board president; Jeff Farmer, vice president and ’87 alumnus; Pat Dunne, chairman of the buildings and ground committee; and Marvin Blum, Joan Katz and Fred Disney, TVS honorary trustees. Founded in 1959, Trinity Valley School is a K-12, independent, college-preparatory school with enrollment of almost 1,000 students. A 40,000-square-foot addition currently underway will bring square footage of the facility to 300,000. A $30 million capital campaign to support this growth, the first of its kind since 1998, is nearing completion.
