INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Dr. Joseph Hollowell announced Friday that he will retire at the end of the school year.
That retirement corresponds with the 50th birthday celebration of Roncalli.
Dr. Hollowell has spent 41 years at Roncalli and has served roles as a chemistry teacher, football and baseball coach, dean of students, principal and president. He has
served as the first and only president of the school for the past 25 years.
“The steadfast leadership of Dr. Hollowell has positively impacted tens of thousands of lives,” said Gina Kuntz Fleming, superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. “His deep desire to serve God and His people is evident in all he does. We are most grateful for Dr. Hollowell’s service and leadership and thank him for growing Roncalli High School into such a wonderful home where students are educated and formed in the Catholic faith.”
Roncalli High School and the Office of Catholic Schools will begin the search for a new
president of Roncalli High School next week.
