Jane Sabes, who is expected to begin work in August, has, since 1999, served as a professor of political science at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. A graduate of Columbia Union College, Sabes also received a master’s degree in Public Health from Loma Linda University and a master’s degree in Public Administration from the University of Wyoming. In 1999, she earned a doctoral degree in political science, specializing in international public policy and public administration.
Sabes has served administrative positions around the world, from director of health services in the Seward Peninsula of Alaska, to work in Libya, China, and Indonesia. She worked as a policy advisor for then-governor Mike Sullivan of Wyoming and then served as director of the Wyoming Department of Health. She has also worked in field and curriculum planning at Adventist-owned Kettering Medical Center in Ohio and on the clinical faculty of Wright State University’s School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio.
Sabes succeeds Adventist educator David Penner who resigned last February after six years as principal. She will be the twenty-ninth in Newbold’s 107-year history, the twelfth American, and the second woman to lead the school.
“Jane Sabes brings to her new leadership role a rare combination of gifts which we believe will serve Newbold well,” said Bertil Wiklander, chairman of the Newbold board and president of the church’s Trans-European Division. “She combines an open outlook on the world with a deep involvement in the life and witness of the Church.”
