Becoming Trinity’s third Head of School is both the fulfillment of a life-long dream and a homecoming for Imana Legette, who officially joined the Trinity community on July 1.
“I just thank God every day that I was chosen,” she said.
Ms. Legette’s roots run deep in Charlotte. An alumna of West Charlotte High School and UNC Charlotte, Ms. Legette began her lengthy career in education as a teacher at the Chantilly Visual and Performing Arts School (now Chantilly Montessori).
She also spent nearly 15 years at Charlotte Country Day School before moving to Pennsylvania, where she was most recently the Head of Middle School at The Episcopal Academy.
“When I think of all the experiences I’ve had, it all led me right here” to Trinity, she said.
Visiting the Trinity campus in the winter of 2022, Ms. Legette was quick to pick up on what makes Trinity special.
“The feeling of family and belonging was palpable,” she said. “You could tell this was a community of people that cared about each other and that are happy to be there to support kids and families.”
“Trinity is a gift to Charlotte,” she said.
