Bruce Morine, Mount Vernon’s CFO, recently announced his retirement effective December 2017. Reflecting on his time at the School Bruce says, “What a great experience this has been, and what an incredible way to end my career – 14 years serving an institution that I have been so passionate about! I wish my colleagues and the many friends I have been fortunate to work with all of God’s blessings.”
Throughout Bruce’s years at the School, he carried out Mount Vernon’s acquisition of the Glenn Campus, the expansion of programs in all divisions, the volatile economic conditions of the Great Recession, the exponential enrollment growth during the last five years, the acquisition of 10 additional acres, the investment in professional learning, and much more.
Upon Bruce’s announcement, Head of School Dr. Brett Jacobsen shared, “Bruce has been a true servant-leader during his exemplary tenure at the School. No project has been too big or too small, and we are immensely grateful for him. While we will miss Bruce a great deal, please join us in congratulating him on an impactful career at Mount Vernon.”
Bruce will remain in his position through December, and leading up to his final weeks, the school community will be invited to a reception in his honor. In the meantime, a search for the CFO position is underway, with the hopes of making an announcement sometime in the fall.
Originally from New Zealand, Bruce and his wife Dale frequently entered the classroom as Experts in Residence, sharing their culture with students of all ages.
