Presidential Search

The Board of Trustees charged the Presidential Search Committee with identifying the strongest and best candidates - Jesuit or layperson - to serve as the 17th president of Rockhurst High School, and bring its recommendation to the Board of Trustees.

Message from Search Chairman

Dear Rockhurst High School Community,

On behalf of the Presidential Search Committee, I am writing to update you on our progress to date in our search for the 17th President of Rockhurst High School.  This is one of several updates you will receive.

We have created a Rockhurst High webpage dedicated to the Presidential Search and a reference repository containing things related to the search.  

The Board of Trustees unanimously approved a Presidential Position Description as a guideline for recruiting and selecting the next President of Rockhurst High School.  It was composed using input from alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends, through email surveys and personal discussions conducted in the Rockhurst High School community.  For this feedback, I am extremely grateful.

We have begun the process to build and access the candidate pool.  We ask for your help in this important task by recommending potential candidates.  Any such recommendation should be sent by email directly to me or to anyone on the Search Committee.  All such recommendations for qualified presidential candidates will be kept strictly confidential. 

We hope you will find the Rockhurst High School Presidential Search webpage useful. Please make plans to continue to visit it often to monitor the search progress and offer your feedback.  We very much welcome your thoughts and comments.

The search for a new President provides an opportunity for all of us to reflect thoughtfully, creatively, and prayerfully about the future of our school. Please keep Rockhurst High School in your prayers. You will remain in our intentions.


In Christ,
Allen K. Roberson, CPA '84
