Jesuit High School in Sacramento, C.A., has chosen Jesuit Father David J. Suwalsky as its new president, with his term starting on July 1st.
Fr. Suwalsky is currently the treasurer and chief legal officer of the Missouri Province of the Society of Jesus and Minister of the Bellarmine House of Studies. He also serves on the boards of De Smet Jesuit High School and Loyola Academy in St. Louis, Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, and the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in Berkeley.
The current president, the Jesuit Father Gregory Bonfiglio, announced in June that he would step down at the end of this school year.
“We strongly believe Father Suwalsky is the right person to lead Jesuit High School as its 12th President,” Kevin J. Ramos, chair of Jesuit’s board of trustees, said in a statement. “His extensive background in Jesuit education will be an asset to our student body and we look forward to his service.”
Jesuit High’s board of trustees unanimously elected Suwalsky to replace Bonfiglio.
