Central’s Next President


I am writing you today to share information regarding the selection process for the 15th President of Central High School, and how our community can get involved and share their input throughout this process.

Timothy J. McKenna, the 14th President of Central High School, announced earlier this month that he will be ending his tenure on April 1st.

We are grateful for Tim’s leadership, his commitment to the Central community and for the great skill and empathy with which he guided Central for the last ten years – particularly during the last two years, amid a global pandemic.

Our alumni community will play an important role in selecting Central’s next President.

First, I encourage all alumni to share their thoughts on the qualities that Central’s next President should possess. You can share your thoughts by clicking here.

Three members of the Central Alumni community will be represented on the advisory committee. If you are interested in serving as a part of this committee, please click here to express your interest.

During the week of March 7th, a town hall meeting will be held to allow all those with a stake in Central’s future to share their thoughts. Keep an eye out for more information on that event, details of which we will share by email and through social media on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

By ensuring that many voices are heard during this process, I am confident that Central’s 15th President will be a leader who can continue Central’s tradition of excellence.

Thank you,
