Lehman Catholic High School announces new President position
School President will guide Lehman Catholic to stay competitive for the future.
Sidney, Ohio, June 22, 2018 — The ever-changing academic needs of our students and the demands on school leadership are more challenging today than ever before. To ensure the continued success of Lehman Catholic High School in today’s environment, the Lehman Catholic High School Board of Limited Jurisdiction, together with the current Principal/CEO, has determined that Lehman Catholic would be best served by splitting the current role of Principal/CEO into two new roles.
Currently, the principal is responsible for Lehman Catholic’s academic programming, administration, and planning & development. In the new administrative model, a president will be appointed to oversee Lehman Catholic’s administration and policy goals. Key duties will include leadership of financial administration, advancement, regional partnerships, enrollment, and ensuring the Catholic identity and formation of our young people. This will enable the principal, in a separate role, to have greater focus on developing a high-quality academic curriculum and programming.
The current Principal/CEO, Mrs. Denise Stauffer, will move into the redefined role of principal. In her thirty years at Lehman High School, Mrs. Stauffer has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the students and to academic excellence. The Lehman Catholic High School Board of Limited Jurisdiction, appointed by Archbishop Dennis Schnurr, will hire and lead the new president. In this new model, the president will oversee the principal.
Board Chair Jeramie Sollmann stated, “The Board has been working with the Archdiocese for the past year to seek ways to strengthen Lehman Catholic and to continue to foster our relationship with our partner schools to enhance the Pre-K through 12 experience and to better differentiate ourselves from other education options. The president will be responsible for executing this initiative.”
The Lehman Catholic High School Board of Limited Jurisdiction will post this position immediately. Lehman Catholic is seeking a dynamic, innovative, and visionary individual who is a practicing Catholic and is committed to Catholic education. Applicants should have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in education, business, marketing, or related field and should have prior service in leadership in an educational, business or non-profit setting. Interested applicants should send resume and cover letter to [email protected].
