According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch on Feb. 25, Trinity Episcopal School Headmaster Thomas G. Aycock will retire after the 2014-2015 school year.

Aycock made his announcement on Monday, Feb. 24. He said he will be leaving 20 years behind schedule because when he and his wife Kae arrived at Trinity in June 1990, they thought they would be there for only five years. He explained, “Then something unexpected happened — our family fell in love with Trinity.”

His family now includes grandchildren, and having a full-time home at Lake Gaston, Aycock said it was finally time to move on.

Who will be the next headmaster at Trinity Episcopal School?

Since Aycock is not leaving until June 2015, there is time for the school to appoint a 12-person search committee to find its next headmaster.

During Aycock’s tenure, enrollment doubled to nearly 500 students in grades eight through 12.

Several building were added to the campus. Additions include a Science Discovery Center, an athletic center and a new stadium, and an overhaul of the Perkinson Arts Center.

It is interesting that Aycock is not the only area longtime Episcopal school headmaster to announce a departure since Friday.

St. Michael’s headmaster, Edgar O. Hubbard III, is also leaving after next school year. For Hubbard, this will end a tenure that started in 1968. His replacement has already been revealed. Michael G. Turner, head of middle and upper school admissions at another Episcopal school, St. Christopher’s will be the new headmaster at St. Michael's.
