CDH Names Jeb Myers as the Next President
The Brothers of the Christian Schools and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are pleased to name Jeb Myers as the next President of Cretin-Derham Hall.
Jeb Myers comes to Cretin-Derham Hall with significant leadership experience in Catholic high school education, most recently with the Cristo Rey school network both locally and nationally, as well as a founding member of a school in the Blackfeet Nation, Montana and in Camden, New Jersey earlier in his career. With his ten years as a President, and previous roles as a principal and a teacher, Myers brings an impressive background and commitment to excellence in Catholic education, not only in academics, advancement, and school operations, but also in strategic planning, enrollment growth, and community relations.
“Jeb’s mission-driven and collaborative approach, his proven leadership skills in both the president and principal roles, and his deep respect for our mission and values will serve our Cretin-Derham Hall community well as we begin a new and exciting chapter for our school,” noted Teri McCloughan, Interim President. “Jeb will be a strong and impactful leader for Cretin-Derham Hall, with a strong commitment to the student and family experience.”
Myers will officially begin June 1, 2024. McCloughan will remain as Interim President until Myers starts, and will continue to provide support during the transition period.
“Cretin-Derham Hall is a place of opportunity and excellence. Families choose CDH because it is a community where students are able to develop their talents, sense of belonging, and faith. It is an honor to be entrusted by the Board to serve as the next President,” said Myers. “I look forward to working alongside students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, and the Board to advance the vibrant shared mission established by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondolet and the Christian Brothers.”
Born and raised in Shakopee, Minnesota, Jeb and his wife, Charlene, are proud parents of four children, and are parishioners at the Church of St. Margaret Mary in Golden Valley where he also serves as lector and trustee. He is a graduate of St. John’s University, with his graduate work at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in both Educational Leadership and Business Administration.
Following the resignation of former president Frank Miley earlier this year to assume a leadership role at the Otto Bremer Trust, the selection process to name a new president was guided by the eleven-member Search Committee named last summer. The Search Committee was representative of our community and included our Sponsor Representatives, Sister Katherine Rossini, CSJ and Brother Francis Carr, FSC.
Maria Wagner Reamer ‘82, Search Chair, was committed to a community-inclusive process, which began with an online survey to gather feedback from all constituents to inform the search. Our search consultants also spent two days on campus to understand the needs and culture of the school through meetings and forums with all constituents before finalizing the job description, recruiting, and vetting all the applicants. Once properly vetted by the search consultants and interviewed by the Search Committee, three finalists were invited to campus. Each finalist spent two days meeting students, faculty and staff, and community members. Participants in these finalist visits were then asked to complete a survey which was thoughtfully reviewed by the Search Committee as they discerned their recommendation to the Board, and ultimately to our Sponsors.
“I am grateful to this entire community - the students, faculty and staff, our donors, friends, and board - for their engagement, input, and support throughout this process,” noted Reamer. “Because of our work together, we have chosen an excellent partner to lead CDH into the future. On behalf of our community, it is my great honor to welcome Jeb Myers to CDH.”
Look for the upcoming winter issue of Traditions to get to know more about the next President of CDH, Jeb Myers.
