Having worked with Ms. Dawn Closs, I am so appreciative of all of her support to my work and that of the Board of Governors. Over the past 27 years, Ms. Closs always brought the highest standards to her work and interactions with such professional, steady and calm demeanour. Ashbury has been is very fortunate to have her steer the governance ship behind the scenes – supporting three Heads of School, and numerous Board Chairs. Ms. Closs’s involvement with essential governance operations impacted nearly two hundred governors and Foundation directors – and helped organize so many meetings and events that supported the school’s strategic direction. As Executive Assistant to the Head of School she has seen it all – filtering various issues that may come across a Head of School’s desk – always with warmth and efficiency.
We are very grateful for all of Ms. Closs’s work in support of the College and for being such a wonderful colleague to work with and for her quiet support and commitment to so many Ashburians!
On behalf of the College, I wish Dawn a very well deserved retirement!
