SAN ANTONIO (Friday, June 5, 2015) The Central Catholic High School Board of Directors and the Provincial Council of the Marianist Province of the United States announce the appointment of Mr. Paul Garro as the school’s next President. Effective July 1, 2015, he will become the first layman to head the iconic all-male, college preparatory high school which was founded by the Brothers of Mary in 1852.
Mr. Garro is currently Principal/Provost at Central Catholic, a position he has held since July 2014. After joining the high school, Mr. Garro introduced innovative teaching effectiveness programs and increased advanced placement courses and dual-credit courses, which provide college credit. In addition, he has established links with private-sector organizations to provide students with advanced learning opportunities.
Well known in San Antonio’s education and business communities, Mr. Garro brings over 20 years of experience in education to his new role. Prior to joining Central Catholic’s executive team, he served as Executive Director of City Year San Antonio and Director of School Improvement at the Northeast Independent School District. As an educator he earned “Teacher of the Year” three times. Additionally, he has participated in the National Conference of State Legislatures, the Oxford Roundtable, and Trinity University’s Principals’ Center.
Mr. Garro earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from St. Mary’s University and a Master’s Degree in School Leadership from Trinity University.
Reflecting on the Board’s decision to appoint Mr. Garro, Michael J. Keeffe, Chair of the Board of Directors and a 1970 graduate of Central Catholic, stated: “Paul has impressive credentials as a dedicated educator and disciple of the Marianist tradition which has faithfully guided Central and young men for over 163 years. His demonstrated administrative experience, vision, and creativity will greatly benefit Central’s future education of San Antonio’s young men.”
Mr. Garro succeeds Reverend Richard Wosman, S.M., who will assume a new position this summer in his hometown of St Louis, Missouri.
