Interim principal named at Bishop Fenwick High School
June 14, 2012
FRANKLIN —Trevor Block, dean of academics at Bishop Fenwick High School has been appointed interim principal of Fenwick for the 2012-13 school year by Cincinnati Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr. He succeeds Michael Miller, who resigned on Wednesday, June 13, after three years as principal.
“Mr. Block is a known and respected presence in the Fenwick community,” said Jim Rigg, director of educational services and superintendent of Catholic schools for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. “He has served as dean of academics since 2010. Mr. Block has been instrumental in nurturing the academic quality of Fenwick, and in assuring that the school offers the best possible programs to its students.”
Prior to joining Fenwick, Block worked as a secondary social studies teacher and curriculum specialist in Houston, Texas. He possesses a bachelor’s degree in history and education from Wittenberg University and a master’s in educational leadership from the University of Houston.
During the interim year, Archbishop Schnurr has also appointed Father Jason Bedel as dean of mission at Fenwick. In this position, Father Bedel will oversee the religious dimensions of the school, including monitoring the Catholic identity of the school and assuring the quality of religious instruction. Father Bedel was ordained a priest of the archdiocese in 2008. He joined the faculty and administration of Fenwick in 2011 after serving as a teacher at Lehman High School.
“We anticipate initiating a nation-wide search for the new principal of Fenwick in the fall of 2012,” said Rigg. “It is our hope that a new principal will be secured by the following spring, and the new principal will begin his/her duties in July of 2013. Know that we are committed to finding the best, most vibrantly Catholic individual to be principal.”
Rigg thanked Miller for generously sharing his talents with the Fenwick community during his three years as principal.
