Dear Friends,

We are Blessed here at Catholic Education Arizona! On June 22, our CEA Board of Directors, associates, former Superintendent of Schools MaryBeth Mueller and current Superintendent Domonic Salce assembled while Auxiliary Bishop Edwardo Nevares blessed our new office!

A special thank you for the festive balloons by The Balloon Family Phx and luncheon prepared by Lisa Kirch, all served as a lovely foundation for the celebration.

An extraordinary thank you to Board Chair, Dr. Melissa Soza Fees, for serving seven years and spending the past two with me in leadership, guidance and grace. Her wise counsel, trust, and faith assisted me and the entire organization to achieve unprecedented success!

On July 1, we welcome current and new leadership to the Board of Directors:

  • Executive Chair – Todd Bankofier
  • Vice Chair – Carlos Sugich
  • Secretary – Bob Venberg
  • Treasurer – D. J. Cole

Please take time to listen to the podcast with Boys Hope Girls Hope Executive Director, Amy Pfeifer below and read the endearing story of the Trichel family and what is important to their daughter in the classroom!

Thank you to all our contributors, stakeholders and community! Continue to share the news on Arizona individual and corporate tax credits. We are lucky to live in Arizona, where our STO truly makes Catholic education accessible for all.

God Bless,
