Construction Plans Announced For New Catholic High School

Diocese of Springfield

The much anticipated plans have been announced for building a new regional Catholic high school in western Massachusetts.

Construction work is to start next month to build Pope Francis High School at the former location of Cathedral High School in Springfield.  Cathedral was destroyed by the June 1, 2011 tornado.

The new high school is the product of a merger between Cathedral and Holyoke Catholic High School.  

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke this morning with Paul Gagliarducci, executive director of the Pope Francis High School project.

Paul Tuthill is WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief. He’s been covering news, everything from politics and government corruption to natural disasters and the arts, in western Massachusetts since 2007. Before joining WAMC, Paul was a reporter and anchor at WRKO in Boston. He was news director for more than a decade at WTAG in Worcester. Paul has won more than two dozen Associated Press Broadcast Awards. He won an Edward R. Murrow award for reporting on veterans’ healthcare for WAMC in 2011. Born and raised in western New York, Paul did his first radio reporting while he was a student at the University of Rochester.
