Bill HambletonDr. William C. Hambleton, President of La Salle Academy in New York, NY, has been selected by the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) to receive the Secondary Education Award at the association’s annual convention in April. The honor recognizes Dr. Hambleton’s exceptional leadership in preserving the “mission to those in most need” at one of New York City’s oldest and most distinct Catholic high schools. The Most Reverend Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, noted, “From my own observations during my recent visit to the school, I have no doubt that the NCEA selected wisely in choosing Bill Hambleton to be honored.”

Dr. Hambleton recently gave a presentation of La Salle Academy’s success story at the annual conference for the Lasallian Association of Secondary School Chief Administrators (LASSCA) in St. Augustine, Florida. The Visitor for the District of Eastern North America of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, Br.
