NDA is fortunate to count LA Archdiocese Deputy Superintendent of High Schools Dan O’Connell among its board members. A graduate of an SND elementary school, Mr. O’Connell brings significant educational and leadership experience from both Verbum Dei and Loyola High School. While principal of Verbum Dei, 100 percent of graduating seniors earned acceptance to college. The mission, leadership, and vision for NDASLA inspired him to serve on its board. When he’s not visiting the 51 high schools in the LA Archdiocese, Mr. O’Connell looks forward to spending time with and cooking for his young family.
