Thursday, August 10, 2017 – Bishop Murry announced the selection of Daniel A. Gravo as president and a new governing board of both Central Catholic and St. Thomas Aquinas High School at a press conference today at Walsh University.
John Sirpilla, the new board chair, noted that the communities at both schools “are grateful for the decades of leadership provided by Father Kaylor and Father Dyer. This new team is honored to continue the legacy that they, their boards, and their teams have given to the Stark County Catholic education community.”
Superintendent Mary Fiala looks forward to working with this new team “to strengthen our mission of Catholic education in Stark County and to move it to the next level. They join dedicated administrators, teachers, parents, alumni, and friends in the community who already work together to educate and serve our students in Stark County. Mr. Gravo brings a wealth of experience in strategic planning, advancement, marketing, relationship building, and quality programming that will greatly benefit our schools.”
