Dear friends of Saint Mary’s – students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff and supporters:

It is my privilege to be serving as the Chair of the Saint Mary’s College High School Board of Trustees for the 2017-18 academic year.  I am the mother of two Saint Mary’s alumni, and accepted my role leading the board because of my deep admiration of Saint Mary’s and its mission.

I am attaching a letter that informs you all that Brother Edmond Larouche has notified the Saint Mary’s College High School Board of Trustees that he will retire from his position as President and CEO of Saint Mary’s, effective June 30, 2018.

Brother Edmond has been an integral part of Saint Mary’s for 20 years, and will be sorely missed.  However, I write to inform you that the Board of Trustees has already embarked on the challenging task of identifying and hiring a successor, so that there can be a smooth transition.  Over the next few weeks we will be asking you to share your thoughts on the characteristics and expertise needed for success in the position of President, and representatives of your groups will be invited to serve on the search committee.  You may also provide this input directly by emailing comments to trustees@stmchs.org.

Each of you has important ideas and perspectives, and it is crucial that the board hears from you on the characteristics and experience that we should seek, in order to ensure that the school is in good hands.  I thank you in advance for providing this, and for your deep commitment to this remarkable institution.

Fiona M. Doyle

Chair, Saint Mary’s College High School Board of Trustees
