I’m just a guy with an idea. During my 12 years as Vice President at Creighton Prep (Omaha, Nebraska), I came to recognize the extraordinary talent that existed within the network of Jesuit secondary schools. I wanted to see if there was a way to share some of that talent to make all Jesuit schools better. That’s when we started the JVLA. A few years in, we began working with other Catholic high schools as well, and the rest is history.
This is a picture of me and my better-half, Cathy. We have four kids, all in their late teens and early twenties. I tend to be too serious. As you can see from the photo, Cathy makes me a better person.
