Rick Maya to speak about growing, shepherding Catholic schools at Sacramento Catholic Forum luncheon on Friday, June 15
Rick Maya, Director of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Sacramento, will speak at the Sacramento Catholic Forum luncheon on Friday, June 15 at the Woodlake Hotel, located at 500 Leisure Lane.
The topic of his talk will be “How do we grow and shepherd Catholic schools?” Maya will address how Catholics can ensure that their children not only attend Catholic schools, but graduate as being academically competent and competitive to enter the workplace or go to college, while at the same time being well-formed in character and Catholic identity. Maya is charged with addressing these very issues with the 42 elementary and three Catholic high schools in the diocese.
Maya brings a unique blend of business acumen from the financial sector, foundation management and charter school experience to his position. He began his career in the banking industry and served in various executive roles. In 2008, he left banking to become executive director and superintendent of St. Hope Public Schools, where he was involved in the strategic growth of public charter schools aimed at serving low-income youth.
The Sacramento Catholic Forum is an association of business leaders and professionals who meet monthly to discuss current events and issues of interest. Check in begins at 11:30 a.m. with the luncheon following at noon. The cost is $30 if prepaid online or $40 at the door.
