In assuming his new role, Wang succeeds former President Edna Manning, who has headed up the school since it opened its doors in 1990.

Wang said he'd like to see the school flourish in the years to come. He hopes to build more dorm space, eventually expanding the school's enrollment capacity from 150 to 300 students.

Ideally, he said, he'd like to see the school reach the point that it can accept any student who qualifies and wants to attend without having to turn students away because of capacity issues.

“We want to stand ready to accept everyone who can do the work here and who desires to come,” he said.
