Holy Cross College names president

Holy Cross College has named its fifth president. Father David Tyson will fill the role for a five-year term after being named interim president in April.

In May, Tyson told students there was no need to worry after an errant email from an administrator cast doubt on the school’s future. Days later Holy Cross agreed to allow Notre Dame to purchase most of the campus and lease it back to the College for one dollar per year.

WNDU reports that Tyson was an assistant for former Notre Dame President Theodore Hesburgh and later became Vice-President of student affairs at Notre Dame. He also served as president of Portland University in the 1990s.
