Todd Zachary has been named the new headmaster of Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf, a private school for preschool through 12th grade.

The Pennsylvania native's most recent position was department chair and senior aerospace science instructor at North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pa. Mr. Zachary is a retired colonel in the Air Force with 20 years of military experience and education, including as head of school for the U.S. Air Force Academy Preparatory School in Colorado Springs, Colo.

"I was drawn to Rivermont Collegiate because of the unsurpassed passion and commitment of the entire school community – staff, faculty, and parents – to the education and development of its energetic student body," Mr. Zachary said.

He will start his new job in July 2013.

Rivermont, formerly St. Katherine-St. Mark's, has been educating students in the Quad-Cities since 1884.For more information, visit www.rvmt.org.
