The second day of the LASSCA Conference began with a roundtable discussion for school board leaders during breakfast before a jam-packed day of informative sessions. Brother William Mann, FSC, President of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, delivered a keynote speech in which he discussed the challenges of holding and passing on the “Lasallian baton.” The morning and afternoon each featured a variety of breakout sessions on the following topics: teaching using technology, hiring for mission, best practices in tuition assistance, the common core, international students, and healthcare reform.
LASSCA also held a business meeting which included the election of a new vice president: Chris Fay, principal of Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, TN. Dr. Maggie McCarty, Executive Director of the Office of Lasallian Education, also addressed the group and explained changes in Regional structure and responsibilities. The afternoon wrapped up with a panel of Lasallian higher education presidents: Bro. William, Bro. James Gaffney from Lewis University and Bro.
