“Chris is an inspirational Benedictine graduate. He lives the St. Benedict Hallmarks in his service to his school, family and community. I’m pleased that he will lead the Advancement initiatives for the school and the abbey as we approach our centennial celebration, in 2022, and that more of our alumni, students, parents and friends will get to know Chris better in that role,” said Dr. Frank Bossu ’67, President of Benedictine High School.
