There is a change in leadership to report at Christian Brothers College High School, located just off Highway 40 in neighboring Town and Country.
Christian Brothers College High School President Mike England resigned this weekend citing person reasons, a school spokesperson confirms.
CBC sent parents an email about the resignation over the weekend and also posted an announcement on the school's Facebook page Monday morning.
CBC Director of Communications Rob Staggenborg said the following email was sent to parents Monday morning alerting them of the resignation:
Timothy Schellhardt ’85, Chairman of the Board of Christian Brothers College High School (CBC) announced the resignation of its President, Mike England ’83 effective January 11, 2013. Schellhardt announced the resignation and praised England’s many contributions to the school and the CBC community by saying, “Mike England has been passionate in his representation of CBC and its Lasallian mission throughout the St. Louis Community. His recent contributions in enrollment and cultivation of the successful Honors program have helped establish CBC as one of the most respected and appreciated private high schools in the area and his legacy to the CBC community must be commended.” This program is significant in attracting additional students to our diverse and inclusive Lasallian school and another reason, among many, why young men choose to come to CBC.
England’s resignation was accepted by members of the Executive Committee of the Board this past Friday.
Michael Jordan, a former Principal/President at the Clayton Rd campus and the current Vice President of Institutional Advancement, was asked by Brother Larry Schatz FSC, Provincial of the Midwest District, to assume the interim role of President.
