The Presentation High School Board of Directors announced on April 3 the appointment of Holly Elkins as its next President, effective July 1.
Holly’s appointment is the result of a rigorous and inclusive search process, which involved participation from the entire school community–trustees, families, alumnae, students, and faculty and staff.
Holly comes to Presentation from Saint Francis High School in Mountain View where she spent the past eighteen years of her career.
“We are thrilled to have found such a strong match and Catholic educator like Holly to lead Presentation into the future,” said Jon Yap, chair of the Search Committee. “Holly’s passion for our mission and strong belief in the power of all-girls education will be a great asset to our Presentation community.”
Currently, Holly is Executive Director of Advancement at Saint Francis, where she is responsible for overseeing the school’s community engagement, marketing, and fundraising efforts. Holly has also been integral in the school’s strategic planning, campus master planning and capital campaign fundraising efforts to shape the future of the student experience.
“I am humbled and honored to serve as the next President of Presentation High School at this important moment for women’s education,” said Holly Elkins. “I look forward to bringing together the entire Pres family — the Board of Directors, Trustees, school leaders, parents, alumnae and students — to create a future that builds on our shared values, rich traditions, and legacy of Nano Nagle.”
