Pius X Names Courtney Johnson Advancement Director

Pius X High School and Foundation (www.piusx.net) are pleased to announce that Courtney Johnson has been named the new Advancement Director.

Mrs. Johnson was most recently employed by the University of Nebraska as the Education Abroad & Marketing Coordinator where she focused on marketing and public relations, advising, outreach, and program implementation, website and MyWorld design and maintenance, data coordination, and event planning.

Fr. Lee Jirovsky has been functioning as Interim Director of the Advancement Office at Pius X for the past six months. He worked closely with Michelle Birkel, who was the first Development Director of the Foundation and after much prayer, discerned to spend time more with family and new grandchildren. Over the course of twelve years, Mrs. Birkel built the Foundation into the $14 million support system for the school that it is today.

Mrs. Johnson is grateful for the opportunity to continue the impressive work of the Pius X Advancement team in continuing to make Catholic education both affordable and accessible in the Lincoln community.

Fr. Meysenburg was grateful for the help of members of the Board of Directors of the Foundation, as well as members of the Board of Advisors for the High School in their assistance with the process.

Pius X High School is the only Catholic High School in the City of Lincoln and employs over 120 teachers and staff members. Supported by 18 parishes and 11 elementary schools, it experienced record enrollment with over 1,275 students this past year.
