Todd Anderson, headmaster of Wayne Country Day School in Goldsboro, resigned on Tuesday, Nov. 19 after a letter from a former student was sent to administrators back in October that ultimately led to an investigation into Anderson and his resignation.
Fran Shaw and David Flowers will serve as interim headmasters while a search is conducted for a new headmaster, according to school spokesman Joyce Fitzpatrick. Anderson, who served as headmaster since 2005 has been accused of having inappropriate sexual conduct with students, an inappropriate sexual relationship with a faculty member and financial improprieties while at Wayne Country Day.
During the investigation, it was learned that Anderson made sexual advances toward students, he gave special treatment to certain high school students and engaged in “inappropriate physical contact” with those students, according to the release.
“Wayne Country Day School is extremely troubled by these allegations and is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students. The allegations have been reported to law enforcement for further investigation,” said chair of the Wayne Country Day School Board of Trustees Anita Shreenath.
