Holy Name High School President Benjamin Farmer to Step Down on June 30
PARMA HEIGHTS, OH (January 26, 2015) – Benjamin Farmer, the president of Holy Name High School in Parma Heights, Ohio, will be stepping down from his current position as of June 30, 2015. A search for a new president to be in place for the 2015-2016 school year will begin immediately.
Mr. Farmer has been at Holy Name for more than 25 years, beginning his career there as a Math teacher in 1988. He served as an assistant principal in 2002 before being appointed principal in 2003. In 2004, the roles of president and principal were combined and Mr. Farmer remained in this dual role until July 2014 when the positions were again separated and Shelbrey Blanc ’95 became the first female lay principal of the school.
“Mr. Farmer’s dedication to Catholic education in general and Holy Name High School, in particular, goes well beyond any expression of gratitude words can convey. His commitment to the students and families of Holy Name will endure in their transformed lives,” said the Diocese of Cleveland’s Secretary for Catechetical Formation & Education/Superintendent Margaret Lyons.
During Mr. Farmer’s tenure at the school, Holy Name has consistently operated within budget while successfully completing many capital improvement projects, including the new library media center, new energy-efficient lights throughout the building, a new athletic practice field and a new boiler for the school heating system. In addition, a window replacement project will be completed later this year. Under his leadership the school has also experienced important curriculum improvements to better prepare students for college, most notably with the school’s participation in the highly regarded Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP).
“Holy Name High School is in a solid position for a transition to new leadership, and is blessed to have a remarkable and dedicated faculty and staff who will continue their outstanding efforts of providing a transformative educational experience for Holy Name students,” said Associate Superintendent for Secondary Schools and Newman Campus Ministry Eugene Boyer. “As Holy Name begins its second century we want to build on the great things that have been done. It is exciting to think about the next chapter in Holy Name’s story.”
Mr. Farmer is currently exploring other options within the Diocese of Cleveland, and will remain fully engaged as president of Holy Name until his departure on June 30, 2015. The school plans to have someone in the role as of July 1, 2015. For more details on this position, please view the job posting at http://www.dioceseofcleveland.org/president-holy-name-high-school.
