John Green, a 1984 McCallie alumnus, has joined the school’s development office as the director of McCallie's Honor Fund.
In his new role, Green will oversee McCallie’s annual giving campaign, which provides key support to the school’s operations in addition to tuition and endowment support.
“We are tremendously excited to welcome John into this new role, where he can bring his wealth of experience to bear on one of the most important parts of our development efforts,” said McCallie Headmaster Lee Burns ‘87.
Green most recently served as a math teacher at McCallie, where he has also been a coach and dorm head. He returned to the Ridge in 2007 after working as director of corporate training and development at Covenant Transport, Inc.
“It is an honor to be able to give back to my alma mater,” said Green, who began in his new role on June 1. “I look forward for the chance to work with a great team to help our alumni, parents, and other supporters see the impact their annual gifts make to ensure McCallie continues to be a national leader in boys’ education.”
Green is an alumnus of the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., and served as a U.S. Army helicopter pilot in Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
“McCallie’s motto is Honor, Truth, Duty and West Point’s is Duty, Honor, Country,” said Green. “I think the combination of those two sentiments provides my inspiration to serve.”
Green succeeds Joe Painter, who directed the Honor Fund for three years, and Amy Cloud, the Honor Fund’s assistant director who led this year’s effort as the interim director.
Green lives on McCallie’s campus, and has three children, Tommy (McCallie ’11), Sarah Jane (GPS ’15) and Jack (McCallie ’16). He enjoys running, golf, spending time with his family, and reading.
