Brighton, N.Y. - The president of McQuaid Jesuit is stepping down after less than four years at the helm of the all-boys Catholic school.
Rev. Edward Salmon will retain the presidency until the end of the current school year, when he'll then transition into the role of chancellor at McQuaid.
"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, 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," said Peter Rodgers, chairman of the McQuaid Jesuit Board of Trustees.
The board will now begin the process of finding and selecting a new president.
