MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Totino-Grace High School has named their new president after accepting the resignation of their former president last July, following his admission to being in a long-term same-sex relationship.

Officials announced Monday that Dr. Craig Junker has been selected by the Totino-Grace High School Corporate Board as the new president.

He will officially start his new role on July 1.

Junker is described by school officials as a “strategic thinker and mission-driven leader.” He brings more than 20 years of experience in Catholic and public education as a coach, teacher, principal, president and superintendent.

Last July, former president Bill Hudson voluntarily resigned after informing the school that he is in an 18-year same-sex relationship.

Totino-Grace named interim president Principal Julie Michels to serve during the search for a permanent replacement.
