A former superior of the local Jesuit community will begin a one-year term July 19 as the interim president of McQuaid Jesuit High School, a private Catholic college-preparatory school for young men in grades 7 to 12.
Jesuit Father Edward Salmon will be McQuaid’s interim president while school officials search for a replacement to McQuaid’s current president, William A. Hobbs, who is stepping down to become a vice president of the national Jesuit Secondary Educational Association.
Father Salmon lived in the Rochester area from 2002 to 2007 and served as superior of the Jesuit community, faculty and staff chaplain at McQuaid Jesuit, and chair of McQuaid’s Board of Trustees Ignatian Identity committee. He is currently the superior of the America House Jesuit community and director of Ignatian Identity at Regis High School in New York City. In addition to experience as an educator, administrator and retreat director, Father Salmon also has a background in labor relations and human resources.
