Director of Student Life Announcement
Dear parents and members of the Priory community,
I want to make you aware of a change in our Administrative structure scheduled to take place next year. We have created a new position to better serve the needs of our students: Director of Student Life. This position is responsible for all aspects of student life in the School outside of the formal academic and athletic programs, including student activities and clubs, Tutoria, and community service. The Director will also manage any initiatives to support students' personal development and wellness, and will assume the responsibilities formerly under the Dean of Students dealing with student discipline.
I am pleased to announce that Mr. Michael Nickolai ’03 has agreed to take on the responsibilities of the Director of Student Life. As an alumnus of the school, a teacher in the English department, Moderator of the Student Council, coordinator of the Tutoria program, and member of the Chaplaincy committee, Mike brings a wealth of ability and experience to the task.
I also want to thank Mr. Anthony Finan for his many, many years of tireless service as Dean of Students. It is often a thankless task to bear the burden of being disciplinarian in a school, and Tony has shouldered it with great dedication and humility. Mr. Finan remains Chair of the History Department, and will continue with his teaching and coaching assignments.
I believe that this new structure will enable us to serve all our students more effectively, and provide a more comprehensive program to meet their needs beyond academics and athletics.
Yours sincerely in the Lord,
Father Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B.
