The History of New Horizons Academy
The concept for The New Horizons Writing Academy was inspired by Scott Kuttner (Bronx) and Sariah Together they envisioned a learning environment for all writers and every skill level. They created an atmosphere representative of the patience and instruction offered to them by other members on WDC. Mr. Bishop and Ms. Sariah had to step down as leaders of the academy due to health issues. Changing its name to New Horizons Academy in 2011, the academy prospered under the leadership of Karen M. Crump , Boos girl , and Rixfarmgirl .
On July 12, 2011, Karen M. Crump and Rixfarmgirl were given full leadership of New Horizons Academy. Then, on September 11, 2011, our Assistant Administrator, Rixfarmgirl , passed away suddenly. She is greatly missed. Shortly thereafter, Katzendragonz stepped up to try and fill the huge void left by Ms. Rixy's passing. Ms. Katz has been with the Academy almost since its inception.
A new era began for New Horizons Academy in the Summer of 2012. Karen M. Crump retired from the Head Administrator position at the end of the Spring 2012 term. Katzendragonz assumed that role, and Scott Kuttner (Bronx) was able to return to the Academy as our Administrative Assistant. Unfortunately, Scott Kuttner (Bronx) had to resign as our Assistant Administrator in the Winter of 2013 to devote himself to his freelance writing business and other important projects.
Ms. Katz will continue on in the spirit on which New Horizons Academy was founded, assisted by Bikerider . Angelo joined our staff in 2012 as an assistant instructor in prose writing. In the Spring of 2013 he accepted the position of Assistant Administrator. We look forward to a long partnership building the Academy and helping writers learn and grow.
