WELCOME HOME GEOFF PALMER '80
Sandusky Central Catholic School is proud to announce that Geoff Palmer has been named the new Head of School by the SCCS School Board. Mr. Palmer is a 1980 graduate of St. Mary Central Catholic High School and has over thirty years of experience in education. His distinguished resume includes experiences from teacher to principal to superintendent, holding positions as superintendent in Hopewell-Loudon, West Geauga Schools, and Westlake City School Districts.  
 
Mr. Palmer's new position has similar responsibilities to those of Fr. Michael, who has been assigned to St. Ann and St. Joseph parishes in Fremont. He will function as the Chief Executive Officer, leading a team of experienced and committed individuals, dedicated to the mission of SCCS. Mr. Palmer will formally begin June 1 at a time where enrollment is increasing, generous gifts are continuing the school's renaissance, and the Class of 2017 is prepared to the lead the area in scholarships offered and premier colleges they will be attending.
 
SCCS is blessed to welcome Geoff Palmer back home to the Panther Family and is excited for a new era of excellence under his leadership!
