Cindy Bramhall Named Upper School Principal
February 1, 2018
Following an extensive search and interview process, Brian Case, Head of School at Westminster Schools of Augusta, has announced the appointment of Cindy Bramhall ’01 as principal of Westminster’s Upper School. Mrs. Bramhall succeeds Mike Freace, current Upper School principal, who has led in that role since 2016. She will begin her new role on July 1.
“As a current teacher and an alumna from the Class of 2001, Mrs. Bramhall has a love for the school and a solid understanding of our mission. She brings with her school-wide experience, enthusiasm, and a strong commitment to Christian education,” said Mr. Case. “She is well-known in the community, is active at her church, First Presbyterian Church of Augusta, and has been a true leader in the school over the past seven years. I look forward to working with her in her new role at Westminster.”
Bramhall currently teaches English and Latin in the Middle School at Westminster and is a member of the discipline committee. In addition, she has served as 7th grade academic dean and has provided leadership outside of the classroom as a Middle School Bible study leader and cheerleading coach.
Prior to teaching at Westminster, Bramhall established the Latin programs at Hillcrest High School and North Augusta High School. After earning National Merit Scholar distinction as a student at Westminster, she attended Furman University where she graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Greek and Latin.
Mrs. Bramhall said that the job appealed to her because of influential experiences both as a student and now a teacher at Westminster.
“As an alumna, teacher, and parent at Westminster, I have had the privilege and blessing of being part of this school in some capacity for more than half of my life. Westminster has played a very significant role in shaping me into the person I am today,” said Mrs. Bramhall. “Because of that influential experience, I feel called to step out in faith and be used to further advance the mission of the school in the lives of students by leading the Upper School.”
