Sacred Heart Nativity Schools Names New President

Rubén Solario has been named the next president of Sacred Heart Nativity Schools in San Jose. Please see below the announcement letter from Board of Directors Chairwoman Katie Burke.

Dear Friends of Sacred Heart Nativity Schools,

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Sacred Heart Nativity Schools, I am pleased to announce that Deacon Rubén Solorio, a highly regarded leader with a deep commitment to providing enthusiastic and mission-centered leadership, will become the next President of Sacred Heart Nativity Schools in July 2018. Most recently, Rubén has been the Director of Individual Giving and Donor Stewardship at YMCA of Silicon Valley. For many years, Rubén spent time working throughout the Diocese of San Jose in leadership roles at the Chancery, Sacred Heart Parish, Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County and Sacred Heart Community Service, as well as a number of other faith based organizations. Rubén is a graduate of Bellarmine College Preparatory, the Graduate Program for Pastoral Ministries at Santa Clara University and completed the Deacon Formation Program followed by his ordination in 2012 in the Diocese of San Jose. What impressed us while going through the extensive interview process was Rubén's connection with the faculty, staff, parents and students of our community. With 25 years of working in the Diocese, 10 of those directly with the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish community, Rubén is fully bilingual and bicultural and deeply understands the needs of our school community.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing President, Sonya Arriola. Sonya has been a tenacious, compassionate and strong director of the work at Sacred Heart Nativity Schools. Please join us in thanking Sonya for her leadership and wishing her well in her future endeavors. I am pleased to inform you that Rubén and Sonya will be job sharing starting March 1st, in order to make this a seamless transition. We ask our wonderful community of students, families, faculty, alumni, friends and supporters to join us in welcoming Deacon Rubén Solorio. The Board looks forward to working in partnership with him, and you, to sustain the important work that is being done for our students to break the cycle of poverty through education.

Sincerely,


Katie Burke
Chair, Board of Directors
Sacred Heart Nativity Schools
