Jerry Graham – Program Director
& Innovation Specialist
My passion is to help your school shine by bringing your students every bit of happy, motivated teachers and great support possible! I am the youngest of 10 (which is a bit tougher these days), and it taught me to pay attention to the details and go find a solution. My parents saw the importance of Catholic education throughout my elementary and high school years. My own sons benefitted even more from their 12 years in Catholic schools (and beyond at University of Detroit Mercy). I have been involved with their grade school programs, parish and school committees, coaching, and volunteering.
