STEVENS POINT – Pacelli Catholic Schools, formerly Steven Point Area Catholic Schools, has announced a new administrative structure beginning Aug. 1.
Lead Principal Gregg Hansel will become director of education, supervising all aspects of the educational program for the entire system. In his new role, Hansel will also continue to serve as principal of St. Stanislaus and St. Stephen Elementary Schools.
Hannah Henderson has been hired as the new director of advancement for PCS, and will be responsible for all areas of advancement including public relations, recruitment and marketing, and fundraising.
Henderson is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where she majored in public administration and political science. She completed an internship at St. Catherine’s High School in Racine, and most recently worked as the corporate marketing specialist for Wausau Financial Systems.
Todd Kuckkahn resigned as president of Pacelli Catholic Schools effective June 30. He has since taken the position of interim executive director of the Portage County Business Council.
“After reviewing the administrative structure, our pastors and administrators determined that this would be an effective means of addressing the evolving needs of our system,” said the Rev. Tom Lindner, dean of the Stevens Point Deanery, in a news release. “We have great confidence in Gregg’s continued leadership and guidance, along with that of our school and central office administrators, faculty and staff. We also have great hopes for what Hannah will bring to what is an increasingly essential aspect of our system.”
Pacelli Catholic Schools includes Pacelli High School, St. Peter Middle School, St. Bronislava, St. Stanislaus and St. Stephen elementary schools and St. Joseph Early Childhood Center. It is a cooperative venture of all the Catholic parishes of the Stevens Point Deanery.
