Dear Holy Family parents,
In these final days of the school year, I am excited to share some great news with you and ask for your help in welcoming Mr. Rory Oster as Holy Family Catholic High School’s new executive director for enrollment.
Rory holds a bachelor’s degree from Gonzaga University, a Catholic Jesuit university in Spokane, Washington, and a master’s degree from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. While Rory is new to Holy Family, he is not new to high school education. He has worked in athletics administration for 17 years, most recently for Camas School District in Washington. He excels at networking, relationship-building, and strategic planning, all necessary and transferable skills for his new role in leading our enrollment efforts. In addition, his responsibilities included event planning, program development and promotion, and budget oversight.
Rory and his family—wife Robyn, and their children Rylan, Reagan (HF Class of 2026), and Reece (HF Class of 2032), make their home in Carver, MN, from where Rory worked virtually and commuted for the past two years. Reagan, a recent graduate of St. Joseph C-Stem School in Waconia, introduced the Oster family to Holy Family through our school’s dance team. They soon fell in love with the school and community.
In describing his excitement in accepting this position, Rory says, “I have become an enormous fan of Holy Family Catholic High School over the past two years. My wife and I selected Holy Family before this opportunity became available, so I have first-hand experience as a prospective parent who chose this school for the education, the opportunities, and the faith-based culture. I look forward to introducing other families to the Holy Family difference—this is an exceptional school.”
Rory is currently wrapping up the school year with Camas High School and is simultaneously completing his training and onboarding to hit the ground running on June 13. Please feel free to stop by over the summer to introduce yourself and share your unique Holy Family story.
Finally, I’d like to thank our admissions associates, Mrs. Katie Miller and Mrs. Beth Grussing, for continuing to introduce Holy Family to prospective students and parents as our search for the best candidate ensued. I am happy to say that interest in Holy Family remains very high, and new applications continue at a healthy pace.
It’s an incredible time to be a part of our school as God continues to bless us with new members of the Family dedicated to sharing the mission and work of Catholic education. Thank you for choosing Holy Family and helping us welcome Rory and our new students and families over the coming months.
Live Jesus in our Hearts,
