The Jackson Hole Community School has a new head of school.

Amy Fulwyler is leaving the school after five years in the position, and after what the school called "an extensive global search," it has named Mannish N. Bhatt to the position. Bhatt will take Fulwyler's place July 1.

He is the head of the upper school at the private Trinity Valley School in Fort Worth, Texas.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in international affairs and Spanish language and literature from The George Washington University, as well as a Juris Doctor from St. Thomas University Law School and a master's in taxation from Georgetown University Law Center.He worked as a judge advocate for the U.S. Coast Guard before joining the faculty of Trinity in 2015.

At Trinity he teaches economics, coaches tennis and leads a section of the school with more than 40 teachers, the Community School said in a press release.

“I found the Jackson Hole Community School to be a dynamic learning environment; firmly rooted in dignity, empathy, and scholarship,” Bhatt said in the release.

Bhatt grew up skiing in Stamford, New York, and also competed in alpine skiing and tennis. He, his wife, Meredith, their daughter, Nandini, and their dog, Roz, are excited for their move to the Tetons.

"My family and I are thrilled to join the JHCS family and the vibrant community of Jackson, Wyoming,” he said in the release.
