The Midwest District has announced the selection of Dr. Scott Kier as the new superintendent of Lasallian Education effective in early June. Dr. Kier is currently dean of students at Saint Mary’s College of California, a Lasallian college, and recently completed his doctorate in Educational Leadership at USF.
Kier has been serving in Lasallian ministries for the past 23 years, including as chief financial officer at St. Joseph’s Collegiate High School in Buffalo, NY, and vice principal at De La Salle Collegiate in Warren, MI. Kier has participated in the Lasallian Leadership Institute and Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies, which are two Regional formation programs.
Superintendent of Lasallian Education is a new position in the Midwest District. It is similar to the former director of education role, but includes other responsibilities such as visiting ministries, strengthening District communication, and helping to advance the District Strategic Plan.
