“I am grateful and honored for this opportunity to lead our school, deeply rooted in the core values of child-centered education, genuine care and empowerment of our students, and advanced through the unwavering leadership of Sandi Gilligan over the past 41 years,” Evers said. “I have seen first-hand how Churchill truly changes lives inside and beyond the walls of our school building, and I am strongly committed to continuing our mission of helping as many children with learning disabilities as possible. As Head of School, one of my goals is to expand our reach across the St. Louis region through our transformational Community Outreach Program so that we can impact more students with teacher training, workshops and school partnerships.”
