Ken Stevenson is the new Director of Residential Life at Lincoln Academy, a position he previously held at the Hun School of Princeton for almost a decade. Before entering the world of independent schools, Mr. Stevenson held leadership positions in several high tech start-ups including the Lotus Institute. Mr. Stevenson is extremely excited to be joining Lincoln Academy, as coming to Lincoln Academy is a homecoming for the Stevenson family. In 1939, Mr. Stevenson’s grandfather bought a farm in Waldoboro, Maine, (just 15 minutes from the school) which has remained in the family ever since.
Mr. Stevenson has led numerous trips to Central America, has been part of many theatrical productions at the Hun School over the years, and for the past six years has been the Girls’ Varsity Soccer Coach at the Hun School. He will be the Boys’ Varsity Soccer Coach at Lincoln Academy. Mr. Stevenson and his wife, Alison, have been married for over 25 years and have five children: Andrea, who is married and lives on Cape Cod; Campbell, a graduate of Colby College who teaches eighth grade math in Springfield, Massachusetts; Connor, a sophomore at Hamilton College; Tucker, a high school sophomore; and Riley, a fifth grader. Mr. and Mrs. Stevenson met at Brown University, where both received degrees in Religious Studies in 1982. Mr. Stevenson also studied in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Among his duties at Lincoln Academy, Mr. Stevenson is most looking forward to bringing residential and day students together through activities that take advantage of the rich cultural and natural resources of Midcoast Maine. A life-long sailor, hiker and camper, Mr. Stevenson is extremely excited about sharing his love and knowledge of the area around Lincoln Academy with others. Mr. Stevenson has a particular focus on developing student leaders, an area of interest and set of skills that he will bring to the Lincoln Academy community.
