Holy Family Cristo Rey Catholic High School
Announces New Chair of Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Holy Family Cristo Rey Catholic High School (HFCRCHS) announced today that as part of its succession planning, longtime board member, Dan Sansone, has stepped down as board chairman and current board member, Brooke Coleman, will succeed as chair of the board.

“Dan Sansone has been devoted to this school and faithfully served this school and its students as chair for the past eight years,” said Brooke Coleman. “During his tenure our school saw a major increase in philanthropic and corporate support, expansion of the board of directors and the purchase of a new campus.  His time, expertise as a former chief financial officer at Vulcan Materials Company, and management experience has been invaluable. I am personally grateful he has agreed to continue to serve on the board as Chair Emeritus.”

“One of the greatest joys of my life has been serving this school, its students, faculty, staff and community,” said Sansone.  "This board remains committed to serving the mission of our school”, said Sansone.  “We provide a faith-based learning environment, college preparatory education and real world experience in the Corporate Work Study Program.  All remain dedicated to ensuring the best possible education and opportunity for our students.  Brooke has held leadership roles in many nonprofit organizations in our community and brings a wealth of experience and dedication to serving as Chair. I am looking forward to working with her.”
