Criterion staff report

Gina Kuntz FlemingGina Kuntz Fleming resigned as superintendent of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis on July 22 to accept a position in another school corporation.

The archdiocese will begin a search for the next superintendent as soon as possible.

In the interim, assistant superintendents Mary McCoy, Rob Rash and Michelle Radomsky will oversee the day-to-day operations of archdiocesan schools. They will report to Annette “Mickey” Lentz, archdiocesan chancellor, who previously served as executive director of Catholic Education and Faith Formation for the archdiocese.

“We are blessed to have a school administrative team in place that has many years of experience, and who will confidently manage our Catholic schools during this transition period,” Lentz said.

Fleming said the decision to step down was a difficult one, but with the support of her husband Scott, she felt the time was right for a change.

“Believing strongly in the tenets of our Catholic faith and the importance of our Church community remaining an anchor in neighborhoods, towns and cities throughout central and southern Indiana,” Fleming said, “I am confident that this move will allow Scott and me to serve as active volunteers/parishioners while creating greater balance of home and work life.”

Fleming thanked Archbishop Charles C. Thompson, the Office of Catholic Schools staff and all educators in the archdiocesan for their commitment to providing a Catholic education and formation for the 22,000 Catholic school students in central and southern Indiana.

Archbishop Thompson thanked Fleming for her 14 years of service as a principal, assistant superintendent and superintendent in the archdiocese.

“I’d like to thank Gina for her faith-filled service and her unwavering commitment to always seek the best for the students of our Catholic schools,” Archbishop Thompson said. “May God watch over her and bless her in this next journey in her life.” †
