NASHOTAH — The Board of Directors of Nashotah House has appointed Dr. Garwood Anderson as interim dean and president following the resignation of Steven Peay on Sept. 1, according to a press release. Anderson, who joined the faculty in 2007 as professor of New Testament studies, is a long-time and well-known official at Nashotah House. He is a widely respected New Testament scholar and has recently published a significant work on Pauline soteriology, according to a press release.

“Dr. Anderson has been an outstanding leader at Nashotah House for many years and brings a level of expertise and commitment that is exactly what Nashotah House needs right now,” said the Rev. John Jordan, a member of the Nashotah House Board of Directors.

Anderson’s leadership as acting dean has already brought renewed vigor to the House’s recruiting strategy for prospective students, according to the press release. Though there have been several changes in on-campus leadership, students and faculty of Nashotah House are united behind Anderson’s vision for the future.

“Everyone here at the House is happy and thankful for Dr. Anderson’s leadership right now,” said second- year student Jesse Lassiter. “The vibe on the campus is very positive.”

The Nashotah House is a seminary for the Episcopal Church, the Anglican Church in North America, the Episcopal Missionary Church and the North American Lutheran Church, among others.
