PPAS Leadership Changes to Start 2019

Rev. Dr. Doug Dalglish has announced his resignation as President of Presbyterian Pan American School (PPAS) in order to return to pastoral ministry. The Board of Trustees made several changes to ensure a healthy period of transition before an installed President is sought.

Mr. David Salyer, Presbyterian Elder and well-known attorney in Galveston, was elevated from Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees to Board Chair. Mr. Kim Warner, Presbyterian Elder and former Vice President of Texas Presbyterian Foundation, was named Interim President of the School on a part-time basis. Mr. Warner has been associated with PPAS for 26 years, with the last few years as a member of the Board of Trustees and Chair of the Board at the time of this transition.

Dr. James Matthews, President of PPAS from 1997 to 2012, has been retained part-time and will focus his efforts on relations with major donors and student recruitment.

We are grateful to Dr. Dalglish for his faithful service to PPAS over the past 6 1/2 years, and we wish him success in his future endeavors. And, we look forward to an exciting 2019 as we continue in our mission to educate and empower our students from 12 countries for leadership in the global community.
