New Assistant Superintendent Appointed for archdiocese of chicago’s Secondary Schools
CHICAGO (July 21, 2004) - Dr. Nicholas Wolsonovich, superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Chicago, has announced the appointment of Paul Maloney as the new assistant superintendent for high schools for the Archdiocese. Maloney will work with the 41 secondary schools, most of which are administered by religious orders.
Maloney brings administrative experience at both the elementary and secondary levels to the job of superintendent. He has worked in archdiocesan schools for the last 12 years as an assistant principal at Carmel High School in Mundelein, a principal at Notre Dame High School for Boys in Niles, and, most recently, as principal of Santa Maria Del Popolo elementary school in Mundelein.
Prior to working in Chicago, Maloney’s educational experience, which includes teaching, coaching, public relations and admissions work in schools, was gained in his native state of Minnesota. “Paul will benefit the Office of Catholic Schools, “ Wolsonovich points out, “because he appreciates both the value of parochial leadership and the experience of working with the Archdiocesan team and other school administrators as a grade school and high school principal in the Archdiocese.
For his part, Maloney says “Collaboration” is going to be the operative word. “I also want high school leaders to see me as a conduit for the services and support of the Office of Catholic Schools.” Since assuming his duties in July 1, the new assistant superintendent has concentrated on becoming familiar with the location and leadership of each high school in the and has already visited a number of them.
Maloney earned his bachelor degree from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls and a masters degree in school administration from Dominican University in River Forest. He and his wife reside with their two daughters in Lake Bluff.
