The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has appointed Matthew Rizzo as the interim president of St Joseph Catholic Academy. He replaces Deacon Patrick Moynihan who was placed on administrative leave after a tumultuous but brief term in that position. The Rev. Paul Hartmann was serving as president of the school part-time. Rizzo is the head football coach at the school and will continue in that role. He was also the middle school principal. Another administrator will fill that position. The archdiocese has also appointed a transitional board of directors as the search for a permanent president continues.
