A veteran Catholic educator has been selected to become superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Omaha.
Patrick Slattery, currently president of Skutt High School in west Omaha, will take the post July 1, Archbishop George J. Lucas announced Friday.
Slattery, 40, will succeed Monsignor James Gilg, who since August has served as both superintendent and executive director of a new Omaha Catholic Schools Consortium.
The U.S. Department of Education has named Skutt Catholic High School as a National Blue Ribbon School!
Skutt Catholic High School is one of only 50 private schools in the country in 2012 to earn this award! Schools can only apply for this national award if their ACT/SAT averages rank among the top 15% of all school scores nationwide (public & private). Skutt Catholic’s ACT averages are at an all-time high and within that 15% mark – allowing us to complete the 18 page application for consideration. More than 325 private schools registered to apply for this award, and Skutt Catholic was one of the top 50 to emerge from the pile of 325+.
