Greenwich Public Schools Director of Communications, Kimberley Eves, has accepted a position with Greenwich Country Day School as the Director of Strategic Communications, effective July 1, 2019.
Ms. Eves said, “For almost 19 years the Greenwich Public Schools has provided me with a wonderful opportunity to combine my passions for communications and education in a career path that I love. I have a rare opportunity to take on a new and exciting challenge at Greenwich Country Day School as they launch a new high school after over 90 years as a Nursery through Grade 9 school. During my time with the Greenwich Public Schools I have had the opportunity to work with and forge friendships with some of the most intelligent, caring, hard-working and dedicated people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I will truly miss working with our amazing GPS team!”
A release from Michael Antonaccio, Greenwich Schools communications specialist said:
Over the course of her tenure, Ms. Eves has played an integral role in the internal and external communications and engagement efforts that have enhanced and strengthened the consistent and powerful message that Greenwich Public Schools is a District of distinction. Her recent accomplishments include: a redesign of the District website, including establishing accessibility and content standards (both of which have been recognized by the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education for excellence); strategic communications planning and support for the facilities master plan; leading the development of the District’s Family and Community Engagement Standards; coordinating the opening celebrations and marketing for the new New Lebanon School as a magnet school; and developing a strategic communications action plan for our transition to a digital (blended) learning environment.
In the release, Interim Superintendent of Schools Ralph Mayo said:
Kim Eves has devoted the last nineteen years of her life to the Greenwich Public Schools. She cares deeply about our District and the students that attend our schools. Communication is just a small portion of her current position as she has used all of her skills and extensive knowledge to help develop and implement multiple strategies in support of the District’s Strategic Plan to keep the District moving forward on many fronts. The talents and skills that she brings to the Central Office are nothing short of outstanding, and I am personally saddened about her departure as she has truly set the standard for excellence in public education. Ms. Eves is an outstanding colleague and a good friend and I will miss working with her each day. We wish her well in her new position and will truly miss her smile and positive attitude as she moves on to the next phase of her career.
The search process for a new Director of Communications will begin immediately.
