The District of San Francisco New Orleans (SFNO) has announced the affiliation of three longtime Lasallian Partners: Greg Kopra, Janet Ruggiero and Lawrence Puck. Kopra, who retired in 2022, has served the Lasallian mission since 1991, first as a teacher and then in District leadership in mission formation. Ruggerio, who also retired in 2022, had served the District in board formation since 2009. Both Kopra and Ruggerio continue to be active in the Lasallian mission outside of their former roles. Puck graduated from Saint Mary’s College High School in Berkeley in 1978 and joined the staff in 1980, serving in a variety of roles until his appointment at president in 2018. The dates and locations for each affiliation ceremony will be announced in a later date. Read more from SFNO >
