Malcolm E. Hutchinson , Ed.D., recently accepted the invitation of the Highland View Academy (HVA) Board of Trustees to serve as principal, beginning July 1.

“We’re excited to have Dr. Hutchinson join us at Highland View Academy,” says conference president Rick Remmers. “His experience, combined with his energy and passion for Adventist education, will be a great asset in advancing HVA’s mission to provide a Christ-centered program of academic excellence.”

Hutchinson comes from Richmond Academy in Virginia where he has been principal since 2011. He has a solid background in boarding academy settings having been an administrator at Pine Tree Academy in Maine, Blue Mountain Academy in Pennsylvania, and Bakersfield Adventist Academy in California. During his career, Hutchinson was also a corporate executive for several years.

After traveling the world as a director for a Fortune 500 company, I consider serving at HVA a God-given opportunity,” he says.

He attended Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan, earning a doctor of Education degree in Educational Administration, a master’s in Educational Administration with an emphasis in Leadership, and a master’s in Education with an emphasis in Religious Studies. He also earned an undergraduate degree in Theology from Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster, Massachusetts.

He says his life has been greatly influenced by an excerpt from a poem by C.T. Studd that Hutchinson’s mother prominently displayed on the wall where he put on his shoes each day as a child. It read, “Only one life, ’twill soon be past, Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

Hutchinson and his wife, Gaye, a healthcare administrator specializing in infection control, will transition to Hagerstown this summer.

Interim principal Leroy Snider will continue to provide leadership at the school for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year.
