PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH UPDATE  

John Paul II Cardinal Community,

On behalf of the search committee, I want to provide you with a brief update on the search for the next President of John Paul II. As communicated early, JPII has engaged Carney, Sandoe, & Associates to conduct a national search for our next President. The search has generated considerable interest and produced many qualified candidates. After initial interviews, the committee has identified several finalists.

The next step in the process will be for the finalists to interview with a panel that consists of a JPII parent, faculty member, staff member, alumnus, student and a member of the Dallas Diocese. These interviews will take place in early November.

We ask that you continue to keep our School in your prayers as we move through the selection process for our next President.

Sincerely,

Steve Cunningham
Search Committee Chair

RE: President Search

I am writing to you in my capacity as Chair, John Paul II President Search Committee to provide an important update. We have identified the following individuals to serve on our search committee: Mary Templeton, Kathy Muhlenpoh and Barry Schliesmann.  Each of these individuals serves as a member of JPII’s Board of Directors and is deeply committed to the success of John Paul II High School.

I am also pleased to report that we have retained the services of Carney, Sandoe & Associates (CS&A), a consulting firm with significant experience in independent and Catholic school leadership search.  Bob Regan is the founder and head of the firm’s Catholic Schools Practice and will be leading the search along with his colleague Bob Windham, a long-time Head of School at two Texas schools who has conducted over twenty-five school leadership searches over the past seven years. 

They are excited to be working with us and look forward to visiting the campus later this month.

Sincerely,
Steve Cunningham
Search Committee Chair
