Ensor will oversee the governance of SPSG and lead the school's strategic planning efforts. An alumna of the school, she has been a supporter since graduating in 1979.
"I am tremendously thankful for the incredible education I received at St. Paul's School for Girls," she said. "To this day I credit SPSG not only with completely preparing me for college and law school, but with helping me to develop important practical life skills as well as a life-long love of learning.
"It seems fitting that I devote time and energy to ensuring that current and future SPSG students receive the same opportunities."
