On Saturday March 29, the McQuaid Jesuit High School community honored president Fr. Edward Salmon, SJ, with a farewell video presented to an audience at the school’s annual BASH fundraiser. Fr. Salmon will be stepping down at the end of this school year to work as school chancellor.
Fr. Salmon first came to McQuaid Jesuit High School in 2002 as a teacher. He left in 2007, only to return in 2010 to begin service as school president.
“Under Fr. 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,” said Peter Rodgers, Chairman of the McQuaid Jesuit Board of Trustees.
A new president for McQuaid is set to be announced later this spring.
