McNicholas is pleased to announce the appointment of the school’s President, Denver “Denny” T. Stanfield, MD.

Dr. Stanfield is a highly respected and nationally recognized Sports Medicine Orthopedic Surgeon. He has been affiliated with McNicholas High School for more than two decades, serving as a team physician beginning in 1995. He has also been actively involved in countless volunteer activities and fundraising efforts at the school, including playing an integral role in the highly successful “Project Paradise.” He and his wife, Joyce, have two children who graduated from McNicholas, Kassidy ‘07 and Dillon ‘12. Dr. Stanfield also served in the U.S. Navy for four years and is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati.

"What an inspired choice, and what a promise for the continued success of McNicholas!" Principal Dave Mueller said. "I look forward to working with and for Denny. He is known and loved by McNick and our surrounding communities. He brings respected professional experience in compassionate care for people and leadership of organizations. He brings a track record of developing resources for the benefit of our students. I’m excited about partnering with such an accomplished leader."

As President, Dr. Stanfield will serve as the chief executive officer and oversee the school’s growth and overall vision, cultivating and expanding funding resources and relationships, fostering financial stewardship, and advancing the implementation of the Mission 26 Strategic Plan. He will serve as the outward-facing institution builder alongside Principal Dave Mueller who serves as the inward-facing champion of teaching, learning, and student-centered practices.
