President/CEO Update - Search Committee

News Type:  Daily Student Parent Staff Alumni Date:  Monday, June 6, 2022

Dear friends of West Catholic,

I want to take a moment to update you on the progress we have made in our president/CEO search. Your survey feedback was valuable in validating both our job description and direction⁠—thank you again for that guidance. We have now posted the job opening, and it can be viewed at

Utilizing connections from a wide variety of sources, we have made more than 30 organizations aware of our search and anticipate receiving applicants from across the country. We will receive applications through July 1, at which time our search committee will begin its work. Introductory information on the committee's makeup is available for you to see at This group realizes the importance of the president/CEO selection for the continued success and growth of West Catholic, so its work is serious business. There will be two rounds of interviews, the first of which pares the candidate pool down to 2-4 finalists for the second round.

The search committee is composed of 14 people. A few members are only available for one but not both of the interview rounds. Our expectation, considering summertime scheduling difficulties, is that we will have about 10 people at each interview. The group is pretty evenly balanced between males and females and represents eight different parish families. We have a member of the clergy, parents of current, past and future students, Board members, and staff. We also have alumni, donors, grandparents, educators, retirees and business leaders represented. This unique group brings diverse backgrounds and, undoubtedly, an equally diverse set of opinions to the table. I am eager to see them at work.

We will continue to keep you informed as the process progresses.

Thank you,

Duane Kluting
Chairman of the Board of Directors
West Catholic High School
