TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

St. Francis de Sales High School will soon have a new president. The school announced Monday that Father Geoffrey Rose, currently the school's Vice President, will become president.

Rose's term will officially begin on July 1, 2015. Until that time, he will serve as interim president.

Rose will replace Father Ronald Olszewski, who has served as the school's president since 1978.

Father Olszewski will become Chairman of the St. Francis Endowment/Foundation, working to raise money for tuition assistance and other funding for the school.

 "I am very honored to be appointed the next President of this great school. St. Francis has a tradition of excellence in fulfilling its mission. And through our unique spirituality of St. Francis de Sales which is hopeful and optimistic, we continue to strive to help each young man realize his worth, reach his potential and as St. Francis said, ‘be who you are, and be that well.' I am looking forward to working with the faculty, staff, students, parents and alumni to lead St. Francis in this mission," said Father Rose.
