President Weisenbach commented, “Kevin has served our school in exemplary fashion since taking on the interim role this past summer. He received high praise for his work to date when I sought feedback from our parents, faculty, staff and administration. We are fortunate to have such a dynamic leader whose passion for Catholic education and young people is evident on a daily basis. Roncalli will be well served under his leadership.”
