Gay school exec lands new gig in Maplewood


The former president of Totino-Grace High School in Fridley who voluntarily stepped down after revealing he was gay found a new position at Mounds Park Academy in Maplewood.

WCCO reports Dr. William Hudson was appointed as the private school's director of institutional advancement and will start the week of Sept. 16.

Hudson resigned from Totino-Grace in July after informing the school that he was in a committed same-sex relationship and it conflicted with the teachings of the Catholic church.

Hudson holds a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of St. Thomas and has held various positions at Hill-Murray School, Trinity Catholic Elementary School and the National Catholic Education Association.
