Dr. Ken Huey

Chief Executive Officer

Ken Huey completed a Ph.D. in Marriage and Family Therapy at Purdue University in 2002. Dr. Huey’s first job after that doctorate was in an adolescent residential treatment setting as a therapist. That job changed the course of his career. In that setting, where almost all of the variables impacting a teen were controlled, positive change became a likely outcome instead of a surprise.

Being adopted himself, Dr. Huey was always drawn to the large population of other adoptees in residential treatment. He ultimately became convinced that this population needed specialty care and in November of 2006, Dr. Huey founded Calo. Calo was and is a specialty program for adopted youth who have a significant trauma history. Calo grew to a 200 plus employee organization with about the same numbers of teen clients served each year.

After selling his ownership in Calo Dr. Huey enjoyed semi-retirement for a number of years. After some time off he began looking for a career and team fit in the residential world and became acquainted with Havenwood. He joined Havenwood as Executive Director in October of 2020.

Dr. Huey and his wife, Bev, are the parents of 6 children. They welcomed their third grandchild into the family in December of 2020.

Scott Sharp

Education Director

Scott Sharp is so excited to be part of the academic team here at the Havenwood Academy. Mr. Sharp recently retired after 30 years of successful teaching and administration in the public education system in the state of Utah.  His most recent assignment was as the Assistant Principal at Cedar City High School.  He loved his career in education, and working as an assistant principal and principal in both elementary and secondary education, has prepared him now to work at Havenwood Academy.

Mr. Sharp has 2 children and 9 grandchildren and loves spending time with them.  3 of those 9 grandchildren are adopted so he understands some of the challenges that come with that.  He loves spending time with his wife MaryAnn and being outdoors, jeeping, camping and hunting.  He loves music and played professionally in a country band for many years.  He recently has taken up playing the bagpipes and loves performing.  He and his wife have served, each summer, over the past 8 years as directors of a bagpipe band in Nauvoo Illinois.

Mr. Sharp and his academic team are working hard to enhance and build upon the great educational system already in place at Havenwood.  He has already helped put P.E., College and Career Readiness and other curriculum and programs into the schedule.  His team is working hard to make the school day more exciting and rigorous and giving the girls as many opportunities to learn and grow as possible.
