The president of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, Baltimore, Father John Swope, S.J., announced the appointment of three key staff positions for the new school slated to open fall 2007.
Derrick Lifsey, a former NFL player, will join Cristo Rey as dean of students.
Mr. Lifsey has managed student counseling and discipline issues at Baltimore City College and Father Kolbe School, Canton, during the past 10 years.
Michael Jacko, S.J., a Jesuit Scholastic from the Maryland Province, has been assigned full time to the school for his regency, a 2-3 year period during the formation and studies program of a young Jesuit. Mr. Jacko will most likely serve as director of campus ministry, said Father Swope.
The post of assistant principal for academic support has been appointed to Baltimorean Anne Hargaden Price, a graduate of Notre Dame Preparatory School, Towson, who received a master’s degree in education in supervision and administration from Loyola College in Maryland, Baltimore. Mrs. Price has served as principal of Sacred Heart School, Glyndon, since 1997 and is a parishioner of St. Ignatius, Baltimore.
“As our staff comes together, the mission only strengthens,” said Father Swope. “We welcome our new staff wholeheartedly to our team, and look forward to working with them this fall.”
