Sarasota, FL – July 15, 2021 – Caitlin West, recently named assistant head of school at Sarasota Military Academy, applies her inquisitive nature in the biological sciences to ask the right questions to inspire students to take control of their educational journey.
West rejoins the administrative team at SMA after a hiatus to raise her five children—a path that fuels her passion to empower all students to seek opportunities even those who have special learning needs or are uncertain of their future. While studying biology at Kent State University, she founded the Undergraduate Biological Student Council in order to give students a voice in their education. This was the catalyst that has sparked a career in advocacy for education.
“SMA-LTC West brings a skill-set that adds tremendous value to our Academy. We are proud to welcome her back, and are confident that both parents and students as well as faculty will find her compassionate voice and strong resolve to invest in the future of SMA a welcome addition,” said Christina Bowman, SMA executive director of schools.
West will oversee the 9th and 10th grade cadets at SMA, serve as new faculty mentor, and be a key member of the school-wide support team.
