La Salle Catholic College Preparatory in Milwaukee, OR, will transition to a new principal this summer. Andrew Kuffner will become the school’s 10th principal July 1, 2013. Kuffner, who has served La Salle for the past 12 years as vice principal of academics, was selected following a nationwide search.
Over his 17 years at La Salle, Kuffner has been involved in almost every aspect of high school life, including chairing two successful accreditation processes, working with the principal in the hiring, supervision and professional development of teaching staff, and demonstrating personal understanding and commitment to students.
“It is evident Andy leads with a servant heart,” wrote school president Denise Jones in an online letter to the La Salle community announcing the selection. “We often refer to our work as vocation, Andy Kuffner indeed has responded to a calling. A scholar with integrity; there is no greater gift to a professional community.”
Kuffner received the school’s Lasallian Educator of the Year in 2013.
