Two familiar faces are assuming leadership positions for TMP-Marian Junior-Senior High.
The Hays Catholic school today announced the administrative team of Kathy Taylor and Bob Leikam for the 2013-2014 school year.
Kathy Taylor has been a counselor and teacher for nearly 30 years at TMP-Marian. She will assume the role of lead administrator, passing on her current duties to a new counselor. Taylor’s administrative focus will be on the staff and activities for grades nine through twelve.
Bob Leikam is the current social studies teacher for TMP-M junior high students. His administrative duties will include supervision of the junior high staff and activities while retaining a part-time teaching schedule.
Leikam’s previous educational experience has been in the Victoria school district where he taught for many years and acted in the role of assistant principal for more than a decade. He is a 1975 graduate of Thomas More Prep.
“There was a long contemplative search for new administrators,” explains Fr. Daryl Olmstead, Pastor Designate. “In the end, the search committee felt that having persons familiar with the institution’s mission and religious values was a good fit.”
The Salina Diocese has approved the recommendation.
The TMP-Marian board will approve formal contracts in its June meeting. The administrative positions are effective starting July 1.
