McQuaid Jesuit High School in Rochester, N.Y., has selected its interim president, Jesuit Father Edward Salmon, to lead the school on a permanent basis.
Fr. Salmon, the former president of St. Peter’s Prep in Jersey City, N.J., served at McQuaid from 2002 until 2007 as superior of the Jesuit community, faculty and staff chaplain. He also taught Latin at the school and was chairman of the board’s Ignatian Identity Committee.
Salmon was named interim president in April to replace outgoing leader William Hobbs, who stepped down after the school year to become vice president of the Jesuit Secondary Education Association in Washington, D.C.
“McQuaid is blessed to have his wisdom, eloquence and spiritual nature to guide us through the years ahead,” said Jesuit Father James Fischer, former president of McQuaid.
