Dear Faculty, Staff, Students, Parents, Clients, Donors, and Friends of The Madonna School,
It is with sadness that I convey the news that, after seven years of outstanding leadership, the Madonna Advisory Board has accepted the resignation of our president, Jay Dunlap. Jay has accepted a position at Bishop Ward High School in the Kansas City Diocese.
Under his leadership we have accomplished significant growth in the programs and services of the Madonna enterprise. The members of the Advisory Board join me in thanking Jay for his dedication, drive, and vision, and say “Well done, good and faithful servant!” We offer our sincere gratitude and our best wishes for his success and happiness in his new ministry.
Jay will remain in his position at Madonna until June 30, 2018. The members of the Advisory Board, working in conjunction with the Archdiocese, have already begun the search process to hire a new President. In the interim, we ask that you continue to work with Jay as usual. Please know that I and the other members of the Advisory Board are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible. If we can help in any way, please do contact us. We welcome your input.
We are grateful for all of the Madonna administrators, faculty, staff and benefactors who generously serve the students, clients, and families on a daily basis. You are the core of our mission and it remains a privilege to work with you.
Again, we wish Jay the absolute best for his family and future, and encourage everyone to help us make a successful transition.
Thanks to all for everything you are and do for Madonna!
Best regards and God Bless,
For the Board,
J. Michael Skinner
Chair of the Madonna Advisory Board
