As Director of Athletics & Physical Education Julie Treadwell prepares to retire this summer after 13 years of service to Holton and our student-athletes, we are excited to announce that Graham Westerberg will assume the role in fall 2021. Westerberg, who currently serves as Holton’s Assistant Director of Athletics, Head Swim Coach, and Physical Education Department Chair, was chosen after a national search. Throughout his impressive 18-year tenure at the School in various leadership positions, he has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to advancing Holton athletics and supporting not only our athletes but all the students with whom he works, helping them excel and reach beyond their potential.
“I am absolutely thrilled and honored,” Westerberg says of the new role. “My goals are to get all of our sports programs to the absolute top and that’s going to take a lot of work that I’m confident that our coaches are ready for and that I know our kids are ready for. I look forward to being a part of all of those kids’ lives…and I will make sure we as a School are doing what sets them up for success.”
Thank you, Julie Treadwell, for all you have done for the Holton community and our athletics and physical education programs, and huge congratulations to Graham Westerberg!
