Staff writer

Jared Herzet, who graduated Marion High School in 1995 and earned a degree in biology from Benedictine College in 1999, will be director of activities and athletics at St. James Academy, Lenexa, in the fall.

Herzet has been at Cure of Ars Catholic Grade School in Leawood since 2015. He spent his first five years as middle school science teacher and two years as assistant principal.

Between graduating from Benedictine and going to Cure of Ars, Herzet worked in the corporate world and attended Emporia State University. He graduated ESU in 2015 with a degree in teaching.

He earned a master’s degree from ESU in 2019 before being promoted from classroom teacher to assistant principal.

“I’m really excited because I’ve been part of the St. James community since 2021,” Herzet said. “I’ve been an assistant coach over there since 2021.”

“Mr. Herzet will be an incredible addition to our staff, and we are grateful he will become a larger part of our community,” St. James Academy president Andy Tylicki said.
