Scott Roy: Wonderful Professional
We're proud of our Chief Technology Officer Scott Roy, who works in technology education teacher placement. Here's what one candidate had to say about Scott's work:
My name is Mike Alexander and I was up until recently a candidate
with CS&A working with Scott Roy. I just wanted to take a minute to express
my admiration and gratitude. Scott was by far one of the best support
professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He tirelessly
worked to find me a good position at a school and constantly was in contact
with me regarding my needs and asking if I needed anything else to make my
search easier. Scott is a wonderful professional and an amazing individual.
Hang onto him, he is a great asset to Carney Sandoe and will continue to
deliver exemplary service!

February 6, 2013
Hello Devereaux and John,
As another hiring season is upon us, I just wanted to write you a quick note in praise of one of your placement people. While I generally have positive things to say about all of my experiences with your placement agents, Beth McArdle has truly stood out for her hard work, willingness to listen, and good humor through it all. She turned us on to 2 fabulous candidates last year that have proven to be perfect matches for our specific school community-including a new English chair…no easy task. In the world of schools, it is often only the squeaky (or broken) wheel that gets attention or notice, so I just wanted to make sure you knew what a great job Beth is doing.

Sherry Coleman Receives 2013 NAIS Diversity Leadership Award
Congratulations to our very own search consultant Sherry Coleman, who will be honored as one of two recipients of the 2013 NAIS Diversity Leadership Award. The award "honors outstanding leaders, connected to independent schools, who have worked to advance diversity and inclusivity on a national and/or international scale." The NAIS committee will present the award to Sherry at its annual conference, February 27-March 1, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. We'll post more updates closer to the actual event; but you can kill two birds with one stone by attending the NAIS conference and our own LINK conference in the same weekend!
