Brother Leonard Conway, O.S.F. begins his 25th Year as Principal at the Prep
Friday, September 7, 2007
Today's first official day of class for all students marks the start of Brother Leonard Conway's
25th Year at the helm of St. Francis Prep. After more than a decade on the faculty, Brother Leonard was appointed Principal at the start of the 1983-84 school year, and he has overseen tremendous growth and accomplishment ever since, including recognition of the Prep as an "Outstanding American High School" by the U.S. News and World Report in 1999.
Brother Leonard now oversees the largest, private, Catholic high school in the nation, a school with a budget of more than $20 million that serves 2750 young men and women from all walks of life, and he is poised to lead the Prep's 150th (Sesquicentennial) Anniversary Celebration next year with a major capital improvement program and fundraising campaign that will help insure the school's future.
The entire Prep community applauds Brother Leonard's ongoing commitment and dedication to this fine school, and wishes him all the best as he continues the important work that began in 1858 when the Franciscan Brothers first arrived in Brooklyn.
