I worked for Mike Trainor when I taught at Jesuit High School in Tampa, FL. He was a good man and I was shocked to hear of his death when I was in Cincinnati this past week. Please remember him in your prayers.

From The Cincinnati Post:

"Nationally known educator Mike Trainor, who helped build St. Xavier High School into one of the nation's best college preparatory schools, died Tuesday evening at his home in Dayton.

Mr. Trainor, 59, served as principal for the Jesuit, all-boys school in Finneytown from 1978 to 1993, and hired many who still teach at the school today, current principal Dave Mueller said.

'I think in many ways he was considered to be the dean of high school principals in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati,' Mueller said.
Friends remembered Mr. Trainor as a big man, an Ernest Hemingway look-alike, who could dominate a room with his intellect, personality and Irish wit. "
