Sally Oberski has resigned from her position as Communication Director for the Diocese of Toledo and as President of the Catholic Academy. I would like to thank Sally for her many years of dedicated service to the Academy.
Sally's strong ties in the Toledo area and her advanced degree in organization leadership will most likely take her onto a new career path. I am sure that all members of the Academy wish nothing but the best for Sally in the future.
-David Hains, First VP
