Barry Ray Shifts Roles in May
Mr. Barry Ray has announced he will step down from his roles as Upper School principal and assistant headmaster effective May 2024. He will continue to serve the school by assisting in the alumni office.
“Barry Ray has been integral to MUS for 46 years. The effects of his exceptional leadership are woven into our history,” Headmaster Pete Sanders said. “Although he will move on from his current roles, he will remain involved with school life. We will celebrate his immeasurable contributions to date in May.”
Ray, who arrived at MUS in 1978, has served as Lower School principal (1990-96), Upper School principal (since 1996), assistant headmaster (since 2018), as well as an American history instructor. He also coached football, wrestling, baseball, and track, among many other roles. He plans to continue his longtime job as color commentator at varsity football games.
Sanders said the school will soon launch a nationwide search for a new Upper School principal.
