Facilities and Technology Committee Chair
Board Member since 2016 – As founder and principal of Kalmia Design, James (“Jim”’) Hickey has overseen hundreds of landscape designs and construction projects in Greater Boston and the North Shore these past three decades. Jim earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Gordon College and went on to study at the Radcliffe College Institute for landscape design.
Jim and his wife, Sandi, have selflessly served NSCS with their time, energy, and skills over the past decade. Of note, Sandi—a nurse practitioner and NSCS’s COVID-19 Medical Consultant—implemented with her colleagues the safety protocols that enabled NSCS to quickly adapt to providing 100% on-campus learning throughout the pandemic, as well as remote learning options for families who preferred an at-home educational environment.
Jim and Sandi are parents to Emma and Olivia, both of whom started in preschool at the Beverly campus. The family are longtime members of First Congregational Church of Hamilton, where Jim has served in various capacities including Elder, Deacon, Meal Ministry Coordinator, and Campus Grounds and Landscape Advisor.
“It’s an honor to be part of this strong and supportive community,” Jim shares. “Not only does NSCS provide an incomparable education, but they help young people navigate this world knowing that Jesus walks with them daily. They thrive in this nurturing and innovative experience full of opportunities.”
