Catholic education has deep roots in St. Louis, but some schools have struggled amid shrinking enrollment.
The Archdiocese of St. Louis announced last month that it had selected Kurt Nelson as the new Superintendent of Catholic Education. Since 2006, Nelson has served the president of Aquinas Catholic Schools in La Crosse, Wis. He will take over as the head of Catholic schools in St. Louis on July, 1. He replaces George Henry, who held the job since 1995.
