We welcome both of these outstanding professionals to our team!”

“I am honored to be joining the incredible administrative team at Indian Hill High School; our scholars are future global leaders, and it is with enthusiasm that we are preparing for a fantastic welcome back for the fall,” said Epperson. “Our team is full of positive energy, and I cannot wait to join Principal Damadeo on the first day of school in the front of the building to greet our students for the start of the 2021-2022 school year!”
In her role as the youth director and assistant director of music at Indian Hill Church, Clark works to organize performances featuring students from age three through high school.

“I am thrilled to work side-by-side with our team of dedicated educators and administrators in the role of arts and activities director for the Indian Hill School District to share the Brave arts story with our supportive community,” said Clark. “Our nationally recognized programs provide an excellent platform for our talented students, and I cannot wait to join my love and passion for the arts with their fire and enthusiasm for all they create on a daily basis!”
