Former Channel 11 sports director and anchor John Fedko has been named president of Vincentian Academy, the school announced this week.
Mr. Fedko retired from his position at WPXI after more than 20 years to spend time with his family, according to a press release.
As president of the Catholic high school in McCandless, Mr. Fedko will handle the budget, communicate with alumni and oversee fundraising and communication duties, said John Murray, chairman of the board of directors of Vincentian Academy. He will not handle academic matters.
Principal Sister Camille Panich is in charge of academics.
"When we saw John Fedko's application, we were surprised by it. We didn't think of him as someone in education," Mr. Murray said. "But he deals with things academics do not deal with."
Mr. Fedko has sent three of his five children to Catholic schools.
