New associate head for Holderness School

HOLDERNESS — Nigel D. Furlonge, a key administrator at the progressive Christina Seix Academy (CSA) in Trenton, NJ, has accepted the role of Associate Head of Holderness School beginning in July 2015. A graduate of Boston Latin School and the University of Pennsylvania, with graduate degrees from Villanova University and Columbia University, Furlonge brings an exceptional range of education leadership skills and experiences to the Holderness leadership team.

Furlonge, who began his career as a history teacher, and co-director of the diversity program at Holderness School, is a founding member of CSA where he established admissions, residential life, messaging and community outreach programs. He also served at Lawrenceville School as academic dean, St. Andrew's School as director of studies, and was the lead teacher for both the History Group and Diversity Group at Columbia University's Klingenstein Summer Institute for gifted young independent school teachers.

Furlonge is expected to play a key role in advancing the Holderness School's strategic plan, an ambitious document committing the community to advance its pedagogy, leadership development and athletics programs to meet the challenges of educating and training young people to lead successful lives in an increasingly diverse, global, and technologically advanced society.

"Nigel's credentials as an intellectual, combined with his extensive hand-on experience in both founding and leading schools will be instrumental in helping us implement our goals," said Head of School Phil Peck, "and the fact that he has been a caring member of the Holderness community for two decades, is regarded highly by our alumni, and trusted by our faculty, means that he will hit the ground running."

Sen. Cruz to speak at Grafton GOP event

LINCOLN — Grafton County Republicans have announced that US Senator Ted Cruz of Texas will be the keynote speaker at the Annual Lincoln-Reagan Day Dinner on Sunday, March 15 at the Indian Head Resort in Lincoln.

Bruce Perlo, Grafton County Republican Chairman, said that he, and fellow Republicans, are delighted that Senator Cruz accepted their invitation to speak . "This will be an incredible evening for voters to listen to one of our country's leading conservative voices."

Senator Cruz is widely seen as a top-contender for the Republican nomination for President in 2016 if he chooses to run.

In 2012, Ted Cruz was elected as the 34th U.S. Senator from Texas.

Propelled by tens of thousands of grassroots activists across Texas, Ted's election has been described by the Washington Post as "the biggest upset of 2012 . . . a true grassroots victory against very long odds."

National Review has described Ted as "a great Reaganite hope," columnist George Will has described him as "as good as it gets," and the National Federation of Independent Business characterized his election as "critical to the small-business owners in [Texas, and], also to protecting free enterprise across America."
