Tall Principals Turn Around Schools

I still haven't read through the recent article about turnarounds (Chicago looks to 'turnarounds' to lift failing schools) from the Christian Science Monitor, but I have noticed that the new guy at Harvard -- "Andre Cowling, the tall, imposing new principal" -- reminds me, in terms of general size and age, of the new principal at Sherman. It of course could be coincidence, or perhaps I'm just too focused on race and age, but is there a trend towards tall young black principals, if only at AUSL schools?
