Word is circulating today that the Cardinal Gibbons School of Baltimore is closing. I hope that clear and definitive reasons for closing the school will be addressed by Archbishop Edwin F. O'Brien. What a shame to close a school of dedicated administrators, teachers parents and outstanding young men who are trying to find a place in this world.
We have one son who graduated from Gibbons and one is a sophomore and will now be denied the right to graduate from Gibbons. While enrollment and donations to the school have dropped over the last few years, there was hope and a renewal of spirit at Gibbons, and all appeared to be on the rise even if it was slow going.
