Jennie Picha has been named as St. John Vianney High School's new Director of Annual Giving.
Picha joins the Advancement Team at Vianney after seven years at Ursuline Academy, where she worked as the Event Coordinator and then as the school's Director of Advancement.
During her time at Ursuline she oversaw the Advancement and Admissions Departments, played a key role in the Capital Campaign and served as a member of the school’s Administrative Team. Under her leadership, Ursuline saw a substantial increase in annual fund revenue and parent and alumni participation in their advancement efforts.
"Jennie is a leader in Catholic secondary education who has an impressive track-record of helping organizations meet and exceed their strategic goals," said Pete Cerone '93, Vianney's Director of Advancement. "I could not be more excited that she has agreed to join our Advancement Team and have every confidence that she will make a significant impact on our students."
Picha and her husband, Kevin, have two sons at Vianney — Kellen, a senior, and Luke, a freshman.
Picha's first day at Vianney was April 2.
