D. Scott Wiggins takes over as the next headmaster of MPH July 1.

Wiggins holds a B.A. in chemistry from Boston University and a J.D. from the College of Law at Arizona State University. He practiced law for several years while living in Pennsylvania. He is a member of the National Association of Secondary School Principals and a trustee of Nashoba Brooks School of Concord, Mass.

Wiggins is a contributing author to “The Head’s Handbook, A Guide for Aspiring, New, and Experienced Heads of School,” published in 2011 by the National Association of Independent Schools.

NAIS Vice President Gene Batiste asked Mr. Wiggins to write about his “nontraditional path to headship” for the handbook.

“With remarkable clarity, insight, and humor, Wiggins poignantly shared how his training and experience as an attorney and prosecutor, as well as an independent school faculty spouse, positioned him to better serve as a head of school,” Batiste said. “Congratulations to Manlius Pebble Hill School on Scott Wiggins’ appointment.”

Wiggins and his wife, Susan, have twin daughters who will be entering ninth grade in the fall.

Wiggins’ personal statement can be read on the school's website.
