Iolani School names next Head of School

Dr. Timothy Cottrell Dr. Timothy Cottrell

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Board of Governors of Iolani School has appointed Dr. Timothy Cottrell as its Head of School effective July 1.

"We are delighted to welcome Dr. Cottrell to the 'Iolani family," said Jenai S. Wall, chair of the 'Iolani School Board of Governors.  "An inspiring and visionary leader with an entrepreneurial spirit, Tim believes that schools define themselves not only by academic excellence, but also by the works of good they foster in the world.  He is absolutely the right individual to lead 'Iolani into the future."

Dr. Cottrell is currently in his sixth year as Head of School at The Harley School, an independent, co-educational, college-preparatory school serving approximately 520 students in Nursery through 12th grade in Rochester, New York.

"The honor to lead 'Iolani, one of the top schools in the world, and become part of the remarkable faculty, staff, parent, and alumni communities, is the greatest opportunity of my career," said Cottrell.  "The warmth, sincerity, and humility that my family and I have come to appreciate as central to the 'Iolani community and Hawaiian culture offers a perspective of great benefit to the evolving tenor of educational goals of the nation and the world."

The appointment of Dr. Cottrell marked the culmination of a thorough, five-month search that began in late August 2011, following the announcement of the retirement of Dr. Val T. Iwashita.  Dr. Iwashita will retire in June 2012 after seventeen years as 'Iolani's Headmaster. 

Dr. Cottrell grew up in Geneseo, New York, and received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Syracuse University.  He completed his graduate work at Princeton University where he earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering.
