“I am truly humbled and honored to be stepping into this role,” Beck said. “The leadership of Father TJ Martinez, SJ, and Paul Posoli has laid the foundation of the miracle we know Cristo Rey Jesuit to be. From its inception, Cristo Rey Jesuit has been blessed with an extremely talented Board of Trustees and leadership team, teachers, students and staff who have been committed to this miracle. I look forward to working with this wonderful community."

“I will continue to advance the school’s academic achievements, increase building space to meet our growing enrollment and to help send countless young adults to college as men and women for others,” said Beck, who has had a 28-year career in the energy industry.
