Peter D. Relic

Peter D. Relic will retire as the president of the National Association of Independent Schools in July 2001 after 10 years at the group's helm.

A former U.S. Department of Education official with experience working in both public and private education, Mr. Relic, 64 has shepherded the organization through a period of significant transition. The NAIS, which represents more than 1,000 private institutions, moved from Boston to its present location in Washington in 1993. Since then, the group has stepped up its advocacy at the federal level and has sought to build stronger ties with public school groups and other organizations representing private schools.

Elfreda W. Massie

Ms. Massie, 49, has been the deputy superintendent of the 106,000-student Baltimore County, Md., schools and the associate superintendent for personnel services in the 132,000-student Montgomery County, Md., system.

Meredith Leigh Eppel has been hired as the executive director of the National Arts & Learning Foundation at Walnut Hill. The group is based at the independent Walnut Hill School in Natick, Mass., and promotes the incorporation of the arts into curricula.
