The president of McQuaid Jesuit, Reverend Edward Salmon, announced Wednesday he will be stepping down at the end of school year.
“Father Salmon is one of the great Presidents of McQuaid Jesuit, strengthening its position as the premier secondary and middle school in the Rochester area,” says Peter Rodgers, Chairman of the McQuaid Jesuit Board of Trustees. “Under Father Salmon’s strong leadership, student enrollment is the highest in McQuaid’s history, the middle school expanded with the addition of a sixth grade, the student/teacher ratio is a historic low, financial aid grew making Jesuit education possible for more students, a new classroom building was constructed, state-of-the-art dining facilities exist, infrastructure improvements lay the foundation for future growth, students come from more communities in Western New York than ever before, and cooperative relationships were established between McQuaid and local universities and colleges.”
Father Salmon says he will remain at McQuaid in the role of Chancellor.
The Board of Trustees will now begin the process of looking for a new president.
