The administration at St. Elizabeth School in Wilmington will undergo a restructuring in the next school year, according to the pastor, Father Roger DiBuo.

In an email to school families earlier this month, Father DiBuo said after reviewing the school structure since his arrival in the past year-and-a-half he has decided effective June 30 to eliminate the job of school president currently held by St. E. graduate Joseph Papili.

“I, and the school community, are deeply grateful to Mr. Papili for his continuous dedication and many contributions to St. Elizabeth School in the years he has served,” Father DiBuo said in the email. “He has shown the Benedictine Spirit in his many endeavors.”

Father DiBuo said he will continue “with our strategic plan recently developed by our school board, in particular for the priority of advancing institution stability.”

“As we move forward, I will continue to work closely with our principals and faculty to ensure that our students receive a sound and strong education,” Father DiBuo said.

St. Elizabeth School is a pre-K through 12 th grade school in Wilmington. It was established by the parish and the Benedictine Sisters as an elementary school in 1908. The first high school class graduated in 1944.
