This was an email sent out to all Benedictine College students, staff and alumni. I’m very proud of Phil and wanted to share his latest accomplishment with everyone.
Benedictine College has announced that Phil Baniewicz, vice president of college relations, has accepted the position of president of Maur Hill-Mount Academy. He will leave his position at the college at the end of March and will take on his new duties on April 1, 2010. Baniewicz also served as the executive director of the Cloud L. Cray Center for Entrepreneurship and taught classes in the School of Business. He joined the college in 2006.
“I look forward to taking the success we’ve enjoyed here at Benedictine College across town to Maur Hill-Mount Academy,” he said. “I kind of look at MHMA as a little brother and I hope to increase the amount of interaction between the college and the high school.”
Baniewicz’ duties will likely be split among several individuals at the college.
“He brought some new and innovative things to the college, including the increased use of video, the Tuesday Fly-By and the video information monitors around campus,” said Stephen D. Minnis, president of Benedictine College. “Our loss is certainly Maur Hill-Mount Academy’s gain.”
