Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School has new president
There's been a changing of the guard at Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School in Wichita.
School President Mike Burris announced plans to retire at the end of this current school year. Robert Knapp was introduced Thursday as his successor.
Knapp anticipates assuming his new position at KMC in May. In his role, he will be charged with the overall leadership and strategic direction of the school.
"I find it very humbling to be selected for this important role in the present and future of Kapaun Mt. Carmel Catholic High School," said Knapp. "I love the mission of KMC to educate and form the total person in the image of Jesus Christ, and I will be an energetic soldier in the advancement of this mission."
The announcement was made by Superintendent of Schools for the Catholic Diocese of Wichita Bob Voboril.
"Kapaun Mount Carmel is an outstanding high school because it is committed to forming the whole person in the image of Jesus Christ and because excellence has become a habit in every avenue of activity," said Voboril. "Knapp already lives that mission in his faith life and his loyalty to Kapaun Mount Carmel. Together with his remarkable professional skill-set, I believe he is the right man to lead Kapaun Mount Carmel to continued success."
Kapaun Mt. Carmel has more than 900 students under the auspices of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita.
