Dear Howard School Community:

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Anthony (Tony) Nelson has accepted the position of Director of Information Security, Systems, and Infrastructure at The Howard School, beginning in June 2023. We are thrilled to welcome Tony to our community.

Tony will serve as a member of Howard’s senior leadership team, and will join and lead our amazing team of IT professionals, composed of Trevor Dean and Bryan Sloane, and Instructional Technology Coordinator Lisa Prodigo.

Tony brings to Howard more than 20 years of experience in educational technology, technology integration, and management. He comes to us from The Schenck School in Atlanta, where he serves (through the current school year) as Manager of Technology Systems and Infrastructure. Over the past nine years in this role, Tony has been responsible for the overall technology strategic alignment, and has led major technology initiatives for the school. He deeply believes in student-centered education, and he is excited to bring his deep knowledge in all things technology and this passion to Howard. 

Tony holds a BS degree in Business Administration from Metropolitan College of New York and a Master’s in Information Technology from American Intercontinental University. 

We know Tony is excited to meet our community and begin to work with us. A few fun facts about Tony include that he is originally from New York and loves to cook. In his spare time, he enjoys woodworking, fishing, and building mini computers. 

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Tony.
