Towards the end of the summer Conventual Franciscan Friar Donald Grzymski became President of Archbishop Curley High School in Baltimore, Maryland. He knows the school very well, having graduated from it in 1970.
Friar Donald’s close relationship with Archbishop Curley High School also continued after his graduation. He spent his apostolic year (1975 to 1976) at the school. He returned in 1980 and until 1988 fulfilled the ministries of guidance counselor, teacher, and assistant principal. Then in 1994 he began working at Archbishop Curley High School as principal and subsequently as president.
In the seven years of his tenure, he helped raise $3 million for the school in a capital campaign; enhanced its many facilities and welcomed a growing number of enrolled students. Bounding with faith and energy, Friar Donald will in his current tenure make sure that the school and the students who call it home grow spiritually and academically. He will also do what he can to maintain Archbishop Curely’s very high standard.
