Thomas Doherty, Former Headmaster of St. Bernard School, Uncasville, CT
MALDEN, MA (February 6, 2014) - Malden Catholic High School announced today that Thomas J. Doherty III has been named by the Board of Trustees as the school’s next Headmaster. Doherty’s term begins on July 1, 2014 when current Headmaster Edward C. Tyrrell retires after five years of successful leadership at MC.
Doherty has served since 2011 as Headmaster of Saint Bernard School, a Catholic, Xaverian, grades 6 through 12 school in Uncasville, Connecticut. During his time at St. Bernard School, Doherty strengthened the school’s fiscal management, enhanced enrollment and expanded the endowment. Previously, Doherty was Dean of Mission and Advancement with Lowell Catholic High School. In that capacity, he managed and implemented all fundraising, was responsible for outreach to major donors and community leaders, served as a liaison to the Archdiocese of Boston and to Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools, and worked with finance and admissions in planning to reach major goals.
“Tom is well-regarded in the Xaverian Brothers Sponsored Schools network, of which Malden Catholic has been a part since 1932,” said Ted Legasey, Chairman of the Malden Catholic Board of Trustees. “He has demonstrated professional excellence at two Xaverian schools, Lowell Catholic and St. Bernard, and has a track record of productive collaboration with governance boards to accomplish strategic goals. Tom is a Catholic educator with a proven commitment to the mission of Catholic schools. I believe our students and the Malden Catholic Community will benefit from his leadership.”
Doherty holds an AB from Boston
College and an MS from the University of Notre Dame.
