Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on April 23, 2018

Dr. David Eastman will join McCallie School as the Joseph Glenn Sherrill Chair of Bible and Bible department head beginning in the 2018-19 school year. The hire continues McCallie’s dedication to the thoughtful study and analysis of the Bible.

Eastman is an associate professor and head of the religion department at Ohio Wesleyan University. He’s a graduate of The Ohio State, and he has master’s degrees from the University of St. Andrews, Université de Poitiers in France, Gordon Conwell Seminary and Yale. He also holds a Ph.D from Yale.

“Dr. Eastman’s credentials are impeccable, and he will continue to help our boys learn about the Bible in a way that is accessible but thorough,” Headmaster Lee Burns ‘87 said. “At McCallie, we look to nurture the spiritual, intellectual and physical growth of our students, and this appointment will help us continue that important mission established by McCallie’s founders.”

McCallie hires David Conrady as varsity basketball coach, Middle School chaplain

Posted by McCallie Communications and Marketing on April 23, 2018

Veteran coach David Conrady will take over as the McCallie Blue Tornado varsity basketball coach for the 2018-2019 season, bringing an experienced leader and motivator to the Ridge to lead the Blue Tornado basketball program.

Conrady, who comes to McCallie from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, replaces John Shulman, who left McCallie following the 2017-18 season. Conrady will also serve as a mentor and advisor to McCallie’s younger students as chaplain in the McCallie Middle School.

“David is a proven leader on the basketball court, but just as importantly he is a good man of strong faith and character,” McCallie Headmaster Lee Burns ’87 said. “He will help our boys grow and mature in ways that will not only improve their athletic skills, but will also prepare them to lead in their lives and communities as men of honor.”

Conrady has been at Prestonwood Christian Academy since the start of the 2016-17 season, and before that was head coach at Chattanooga Christian — where he was 2016 District Coach of the Year. At Prestonwood, he guided the Lions to the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools 6A state championship in 2017, and was named the 2017 Private School Coach of the Year by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. He followed up that championship season with a run to the TAPPS 6A Final Four in 2018.
