Brookstone's board of trustees names Brian Kennerly of Wesleyan School as new headmaster

Brookstone School has a new headmaster.

Brian Kennerly, Assistant Headmaster for External Affairs at Wesleyan School in Norcross, Georgia, was chosen for the lead job at the Columbus independent school after a year-long search.

Kennerly will take over as headmaster in June 2010.

The former headmaster, Scott Wilson, stepped down last year to take a job as head of the Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tenn. Former Columbus State University president Frank Brown led the school as an interim, while the Board of Trustees searched for a new headmaster.
