Dr. Catherine J. Hall was officially installed as head of Noble and Greenough School on October 2, 2017, in the Rappaport Gymnasium in the Morrison Athletic Center on campus.

Participants in the celebration included Beth Reilly ’87, president of the Nobles Board of Trustees; T.J. Locke, head of school at Episcopal Academy in Philadelphia; School Life Council co-presidents Emma Majernik and Uche Ndukwe, both ’18; Madi Shaer and Arnav Harve, both ’23, and representing Nobles’ youngest students in Class VI; faculty members Nick Nickerson and Deb Harrison; former Nobles heads of school Dick Baker and Bob Henderson ’76; Greensleeves and Nobleonians singers, under the direction of Michael Turner; and Bobby Strzetelski ’21, who performed “Hail to Nobles.”

Reilly welcomed guests and shared her excitement for Hall’s leadership. She traced the school’s history to the present, noting the hallmarks of each headship. “Dr. Hall’s chapter has yet to be written,” Reilly said. “A hallmark of Nobles history has been that at each key moment in transition, Nobles has always chosen the right person at the right time. The board of trustees knows that to be true in the appointment of you, Dr. Hall, as Nobles' seventh head of school."
