Dear Parents and Alumni of St. Francis Prep,
I am writing to inform you of a decision made by the Board of Trustees of St. Francis Prep.
The Board of Trustees has voted to change the Administrative model of St. Francis Prep to have both a President and a Principal.
The decision to move to the President/Principal model of administration was made after two years of study, discussion and education by all of the members of the Board of Trustees.
The Board of Trustees of St. Francis Prep has chosen Brother Leonard Conway to be the President of St. Francis Prep for a four year term beginning September 1, 2013.
Brother Leonard has lead St. Francis Prep as its Principal since 1983. By his administrative leadership during the past three decades he has ensured the Prep’s strength in an increasingly complex world.
With the approval of the Board of Trustees, Brother Leonard has chosen Mr. Patrick McLaughlin as Principal of St. Francis Prep for a four year term beginning September 1, 2013.
Mr. McLaughlin has served St. Francis Prep as an Assistant Principal for more than 20 years. In that capacity he has been closely involved with many of Prep’s administrative decisions.
With this new Administrative model the Board of Trustees anticipates that the St. Francis Prep Community--Administrators, Faculty and Staff--will continue to meet the challenges of the 21st Century with the confidence and enthusiasm they have always demonstrated.
Brother William Boslet, O.S.F.
President, St. Francis Prep Board of Trustees
