BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The 2015-16 Pro Deo Et Schola Award was presented to James Dhyne, principal of The Chapel School in Bronxville, on Sunday.
The Pro Deo Et Schola Award honors people for their nurturing and enhancement of Christian ministry. Pro Deo Et Schola is Latin “for God and school.”
During his 17-year tenure at Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School, Dhyne has shown the power to lead and the wisdom to get out of the way and let others use their gifts in building up the kingdom. His leadership and work with so many faculty, staff, parents and volunteers has resulted in great growth of The Chapel School.
His leadership has led to many advances in the Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School community. He was vital in the creation of a strategic plan for growth of the student body and The Chapel School brand. He implemented several fundraising campaigns, resulting in millions of dollars for debt repayment, and program development. Dhyne led the creation of a golf outing and gala auction that raise substantial support for church and school programs. He has supported the Trustee Board for 17 years.
When presenting the award, the Rev. Robert Hartwell, senior pastor of Village Lutheran Church stated, “I am sure that I echo the feeling of many that we also thank God for having Principal Dhyne as a co-worker and friend. Even with the many achievements, what many of us value most of all is the love and support that we have for you as a man of character, someone we would describe as an empathetic, jovial, caring, wise and generous leader.”
The Chapel School and Village Lutheran Church are located at 172 White Plains Road in Bronxville. For more information about The Chapel School and its programs, call 914-337-3202 or visit this link .
