St. Johns is pleased to welcome Kelly Risdon, of Ortega, as Director of Enrollment Management. Reporting to Head of School Valorie Baker, Mrs. Risdon will be responsible for managing the School's overall enrollment, introducing families to St. Johns, and managing the Office of Admissions. "We are so pleased to have Kelly join our St. Johns team," said Baker. "She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, not just of independent schools, but also of the Jacksonville community, and we're thrilled to have her as part of the St. Johns family."
Mrs. Risdon comes to St. Johns after 25 years at St. Mark's Episcopal Day School, where she served as Director of Admission and Enrollment and, before that, as faculty. "I'm excited to begin my new adventure at St. Johns and look forward to sharing with the greater Jacksonville community what an amazing school it is," said Risdon.
Mrs. Risdon received her bachelor's degree in elementary education from DeLand's Stetson University and her master's degree in reading education from Jacksonville University. She lives with her husband, Craig, in Ortega. When she's not on campus here at St. Johns, Mrs. Risdon enjoys playing tennis and spending time with her family including Craig and their two daughters, Kate and Emily, ages 20 and 24.
