It is with a sad heart that I must announce the resignations of both Official Liam Kartak and Prof. Annabelle Leigh from the board of Governors.
These governors joined the governors board last spring, when the forum was recovering from a serious transition in site leadership. They worked tirelessly to take on the academics commission and transform it so that it was not only more manageable for future governors, but also for students in understanding expectations and requirements. They developed an entire summer class program single handed, our Camp Avalon, which we anticipate will continue into the summer 2020 term. After transitioning out of the academics commission, they undertook the RP commission, making sure everything was working in smooth order.
We are extremely grateful for all of the hours these writers put into the forum. They are resigning so that they can spend more time enjoying the art of RP, which was and is difficult for members who have administrative responsibilities. We absolutely respect their decision and support their interests.
Moving forward from this transition, and the transition of Prof. Alaina Balthazar's recent resignation, the governors board is pleased to welcome Prof. Guinevere Meredith to the team. She has been a member of Hogwarts Online since the earliest years in 2006. She will be shadowing me in the academics commission with the potential of taking it on in the future, though there is a possibility that we co-direct the commission.
Please join me in thanking Prof. Annabelle Leigh and Official Liam Kartak for their work. It does not go unnoticed. Also join me in welcoming Prof. Guinevere Meredith into her new position.
