Shifting principals

Founding administrator returns until permanent replacement found

There’s been a change of leadership in the administration at Inspire School of the Arts and Sciences.

Jerry Crosby (pictured), who served as the charter school’s principal since June 2015, resigned from that position effective June 30, according to a letter to the campus community. Eric Nilsson, who served as Inspire’s head administrator from the school’s founding in fall 2010 until Crosby filled the position, took over as interim principal on July 1 and will serve in that position for the 2017-18 school year.

“I want you to know that I have loved my time at Inspire, and had hoped to be part of this incredible family for much longer,” reads Crosby’s letter of resignation, though it doesn’t give a reason for her departure. “The last two years have been both a challenge and an inspiration, and I have loved it all.”
