ADV + WNM Leadership Updates

Hello students! Hope you have been enjoying a well-deserved break and are excited to start the new semester in a few weeks! We wanted to share some amazing news:

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Fred McHale to the position of Co-Director of ADV and WNM, alongside current Co-Director Andrea Pimentel. Fred has been teaching at the Academy since 2011. He was previously the Online Director for the ADV and WNM departments, and is Chair of the Online Education Steering Committee.

ADV would like to thank former Co-Director Ryan Medeiros for his over 15 years of service to our program and students, and are pleased that he will continue to teach with us as he pursues other artistic interests.

In other exciting news, we are also pleased to announce that Nikki Oettinger is moving into the role of Online Director for both ADV and WNM.

And last but certainly not least, a special shout out to DC Scarpelli, our newest WNM Associate Director.

Congratulations to Fred, Nikki & DC! So proud of your hard work and dedication. Stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to Spring 2019!
