My son has flourished since he started at CBA eight years ago. I understood early on that this school was a very special place. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Central Michigan University and previously held positions in the marketing and pharmaceutical industries. Fourteen years ago, I made the decision to be a stay-at-home mom to raise our two sons. My past volunteer positions have included Chesapeake Public School PTA and Chesapeake Mom’s Club boards. This is my fifth year as the PA President and my fourth year serving in the Board of Trustee’s Education and Research Committee.

MaryAnne Dukas

Trustee Emeritus, prior Head of School (1994-2013)
In July of 1994, when Mrs. Dukas became Head of Chesapeake Bay Academy, the school served 36 students with learning differences, ages 5-12. The program consisted of five classrooms, 15 employees and 11 computers. Today, CBA is a K-12 school with over 40 employees serving 100 students in a state-of-the-art building, offering students 1-1 personal technology plus 5 computer labs. MaryAnne's perseverance and tenacity moved CBA forward exponentially, for which we extend our deepest gratitude. MaryAnne is also the founding board chair of Lady's Grace, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of spouses, children and pets of military families and owner of Bishopsgate Design & Decor, Virginia's premier purveyor of furniture, gifts, and home accents.

The CBA Community extends our sincere gratitude to Will King for his 28 years of service on the Board of Trustees. Mr. King, who joined the board in 1992, has been a driving force in the school's numerous accomplishments over the past three decades. Mr. King served several years as co-chair of the advancement committee. He also served on the finance committee, campaign steering committee, and was a cabinet member of the Transformation Capital Campaign. In 2017, Mr. King was selected as "Outstanding Volunteer Fundraiser" by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Hampton Roads Chapter for his tremendous work within the community. Will is a retired Captain in the United States Navy, and retired as Headmaster of Norfolk Collegiate School after 20 years in that position. He has a rich history of service across Hampton Roads and continues to serve the community raising funds for The MacArthur Memorial. He is founding chair and present board member of Horizons Hampton Roads, and serves on the board of the Future of Hampton Roads, Inc. He was on the Virginia State Council and currently is a field consultant for the Southern Association of College and School's council on school improvement. Mr. King has served as President of the Virginia Association of Independent Schools and The Norfolk Forum, and was Senior Warden of the St. Andrews Episcopal Church Vestry. Clearly, Will is a very busy man! While Mr. King tendered his resignation in April, the CBA Board quickly voted to make him an Emeritus member in appreciation of all that he's done for our CBA community.
