LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Steve Angelucci announced his intention to step down as president of Lexington Catholic High School at the conclusion of the 2018-19 academic year.

Angelucci is a 1971 graduate of Lexington Catholic. he was appointed president in 2009 after a career in dentistry and sports management.

“It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve in this role,” Angelucci said in a statement. “I have received extraordinary support from Bishop John Stowe, our superintendents, the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, administration, students, parents and alumni. I am proud of the strides that have been made at Lexington Catholic in recent years and grateful for my opportunity to be part of so many improvements to our school.”

Cindy Hamm, Chair of Lexington Catholic Board of Trustees, talked about Angelucci’s impact on the school in a press release.

“It has been a privilege to work with Steve Angelucci during his tenure as President,” Hamm said.  “Steve has shown steadfast leadership during a decade of unprecedented change in secondary education.  He has been instrumental in developing vital programs that will have a lasting impact on the future success of the school.

“While there is never a good time for a valued leader to move on to new challenges, our Board is prepared to conduct an extensive search for an equally outstanding successor,” Hamm said.

The news release said that Angelucci plans to remain involved in Lexington Catholic’s efforts to raise funds for the planned renovation and expansion projects.
