February 25, 2003|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An assistant headmaster at a private school outside Pittsburgh has been named the new head of the upper school at Loyola Blakefield in Towson, school officials have announced.

Christopher J. Post, who is assistant headmaster at the Kiski School in Saltsburg, Pa., will take over July 1 at the private Catholic school with 972 boys in sixth through 12th grades, said the Rev. John M. Dennis, president of Loyola.

Post, 32, replaces Gail Kujawa, who has served as interim head of the upper school for the past year.

Post graduated from the Johns Hopkins University in 1992. A native of Buffalo, N.Y., he grew up in Boston and earned a master's degree in history from Boston University in 1994. He is working on his doctorate in administration and leadership studies at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Post also has served as dean of students at Kiski and held positions as chairman of the history department and assistant director of admissions at the Heights School in Potomac.

He said he has been involved with Jesuit traditions and values and is looking forward to moving to Baltimore with his wife and three children when he leaves Kiski in June.

Kujawa will take over as head of Loyola's middle school July 1.
