Bishop Ward President guest on Archbishop’s radio show

KANSAS CITY, KAN. ----- Bishop Ward High School’s new  President, Father Thomas Schrader O. Carm., was a guest on Archbishop Naumann’s Radio show “The Shepherd's Voice”.

The Show aired on Sunday November 9th at 10 a.m. on KEXS 1090 AM. The show can be listened to virtually at: http://archkck.libsyn.com/wards-new-president.

This segment of “The Shepherd’s Voice” featured an interview with Fr. Schrader. Listeners learned more about what brought Fr. Schrader to Kansas City and how he was chosen to be the new president of Bishop Ward.

Prior to his arrival in Kansas City, Fr. Schrader was the parochial vicar of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in Tenafly, New Jersey.

Before that he was President of Crespi Carmelite High School for nine years in Encino, California. Fr. Schrader has been all over the country and brings a wealth of experience to help guide Bishop Ward.

In the few short months that Fr. Schrader has been at Bishop Ward, he already is leaving his finger print.

He helped dream up the idea of Fund-A-Cyclone for the 36th Annual Auction. Instead of focusing on a traditional capital project for the school, he decided to focus on our greatest need and strength, our students. This successful campaign raised just over forty-six thousand dollars for student scholarships.

Bishop Ward is blessed to welcome Fr. Schrader and looks forward to the future.

“I am energized by the loyal support of alumni, parents and friends and excited to shape Bishop Ward’s future generation of moral leaders,” said Fr. Schrader.
