CBA president to step down this spring
Christian Brother Frank Byrne, president of Christian Brothers Academy, Lincroft, will end his term at the Lincroft school to become Auxiliary Provincial for Brothers’ District of Eastern North America (DENA) as of Sept. 1.
Reflecting upon his term as president, Brother Frank said, “I have enjoyed my 12 years as president of CBA tremendously. It has been an honor to come back to my alma mater and work with a group of dedicated faculty, staff and administration. The students, parents and alumni have been supportive, and I will truly miss my day-to-day interaction with the CBA community.”
During his presidency at CBA, Brother Frank led an expansion of offerings across campus. Assuming his role at the start of the academy’s “Project 50th” capital campaign, he oversaw the additions of the Quinn Library & Media Center; new administrative and guidance office suites; multiple new classrooms and labs, and an expanded fitness center.
CBA earned the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence for high performing schools in 2017 (the second time in the school’s history) under the direction of Brother Frank, Principal Ross Fales and Associate Principal Sean Nunan. The religious also was the main catalyst in expanding the school’s scholarship and financial aid offerings, as well as maintaining strong enrollment numbers. The Academy now has 84 named scholarships, and awards $1.9 million each year in scholarships and aid. […continue reading]
