Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School today announced leadership changes.
Brother Patrick Duffy, who was named president in 2012, now is "preparing to move on to his next assignment," according to school officials.
Central had both a president and a principal, but, with Brother Patrick's departure, the school will have one top leader. Brother Robert Schaefer, who has been principal for five years, will oversee academic as well as advancement and financial operations. Brother Bob has been at Central for 17 years.
In a statement, Brother Bob said, "As we look to the future, Central Catholic is ready to face the challenges of providing an outstanding Catholic secondary education in the tradition of the Christian Brothers. The commitment of so many dedicated people to ensuring the vitality of our mission for generations of boys to come is very encouraging."
"Brother Bob has done an outstanding job at Central Catholic and will have the complete support of the Board of Directors in his new leadership position," Central board chairman Richard Hamilton said.
