Spain Named MUS Assistant Principal

Mr. Ross Spain has been named Memphis University School’s new Lower School assistant principal and Admissions associate, effective this summer. Spain comes to MUS from Presbyterian Day School where he has been director of Student Life since 2009.
“Ross brings a deep understanding of reaching and teaching boys, and he has a strong resume with Memphis independent schools,” Headmaster Pete Sanders said. “Our PDS alumni will remember him well from service-learning projects, character education classes, mentoring groups, and after-school and summer sports. I look forward to him bringing his leadership and interpersonal skills to the Lower School team, led by Interim Principal McKee Humphreys ’01.”

Before his Student Life role at PDS, Spain was at Hutchison School where he served as Lower and Middle School athletic director (2008-09), Middle School dean of students (2005-08), and physical education teacher/coach (2004-05). After earning a Bachelor of Science in Education from University of Memphis, he taught at Lucy Elementary School in Millington (1997-99) and PDS (1999-2004).
