David Card
Regis Jesuit High School in Colorado Names New President

February 19, 2016 — Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colorado, has named David Card as the school’s new president, effective August 1, 2016.

Card will replace Rick Sullivan, who has served as interim president of Regis Jesuit since last September. Prior to Sullivan’s interim term, Jesuit Father Paul Sheridan resigned from the presidency due to health issues.

“I welcome the appointment of Mr. Card as the next president of Regis Jesuit High School,” said Jesuit Father Ronald Mercier, provincial of the Central and Southern Province Jesuits.

Card, who will become Regis Jesuit’s first lay president, has been involved at the school since he graduated from Regis in 1987. He has served as a member of Regis Jesuit’s Board of Trustees for the last year and worked as director of development at the school from 1999 to 2003. He is also a member of the Nativity Miguel Coalition School Advisory Board and the board of Arrupe Jesuit High School and is director of the Salazar Family Foundation.

He holds a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Colorado at Denver and a bachelor’s degree in political science and criminal justice from Regis University in Denver. He is married with three children; his oldest child hopes to become a member of the RJHS class of 2020.

Card has served as president of Escuela de Guadalupe, a dual-language Catholic primary school in Denver built on Ignatian principles, since its founding in 2003. In the past year, Card guided the school through a campaign to move to a larger facility in northwest Denver, which will allow it to double enrollment over the next several years.

“In Mr. Card, the commitment to the Jesuit identity of the school and to Catholic education not only will live on but will thrive; his service at the Escuela de Guadalupe demonstrates already the gifts he brings,” Fr. Mercier said. “I know with him Regis Jesuit’s mission will flourish. On behalf of the U.S. Central and Southern Province, I both promise and look forward to our collaboration with Mr. Card and all at Regis Jesuit High School."
