About

Board of Trustees

The O’Neal Board of Trustees is made up of current and past parents, alumni, and community leaders – a diversely experienced group of individuals – all dedicated to shaping the successful vision of O’Neal, ensuring the long-term viability of the School and supporting the School and its leadership as they deliver on the O’Neal mission each day.

Unique in its nature as a hands-on, volunteer-minded force, our trustees give generously of their time, talents, and resources to see this mission through. Our active roles in the community also help to better inform our positions, even as they reinforce the connections that make our greater O’Neal community so special. I am fortunate to serve with such a committed group of trustees, and I continue to be impressed by the thoughtfulness with which they approach their responsibilities as board members.
