About the Board
The Board serves to provide oversight and governance for La Salle High School to ensure that the strategic interests of both the school and the Archdiocese are in order so that both may collectively enhance the mission and vision of the school.
The Board operates within its reserved authority to oversee and approve the annual evaluation of the principal, establishing long-term and short-term goals and monitoring school operations through robust committee work. Paramount to this work, each board member is tasked with being an ambassador on behalf of the school and to convey the profound impact La Salle High School maintains as an anchor of Catholic identity in our communities.
Board members will serve on one of the following committees. These committees, made up of board members, faculty, staff and community members, include:
- Executive Committee
- Mission and Student Success

Greg Hardig Jr. '96
I am honored to submit my name in service to the Archdiocese, the Board, and the LaSalle Community. I wish to serve this Community for which I have received so much. Three generations of Hardig’s have benefited from LaSalle High School. The brotherhood has left a mark on my family with me, both my dad (Greg Sr. '75) and father-in-law (Greg Thomes '65), many uncles, cousins and now three of my own sons, with two more of my boys waiting to attend! I would not be the Christian, Husband, Father, Friend, or Business Owner I am today without the formation and education I received at LaSalle. Preserving and spreading this gift is of the upmost importance to me. Just like steel sharpens steel, so do men sharpen men. That is just the start of how I feel LaSalle impacts our community. Generations of young men from all around our city need to experience this Brotherhood. My career in project management in the construction industry and skills formed as a business owner will allow me to help reinforce the LaSalle staff and community, to continue its mission and vison going forward.

Steve Ruhe '77
La Salle High School played an important part in my development as a young man and its influence continues to guide me throughout my life.
I’ve experienced the bond with other La Salle graduates – my brothers, son, nephews, classmates, friends and others. I fully support La Salle’s Catholic Mission to help young men achieve their full potential. As a result, it has been important to me to promote the school through the Annual Fund, Camelot Auction and Sports Stag.
As a member of the Board of Limited Jurisdiction, I commit to focus my talents and energy to ensure more young men can experience the same supportive and challenging environment that benefited me in mind, body and spirit.
I’m a lifelong west side resident and graduate of St. James School-White Oak and La Salle High School (Class of 1977). My family includes my wife, Connie, and two children: Natalie graduated from McAuley High School in 2005 and Mark is a 2008 La Salle graduate. Both graduated from St. Ignatius of Loyola School.
We have been parishioners of St. I’s parish since 1987. I’ve been an engaged member, having served on the Pastoral Council and Worship Commission, participated in Christ Renews His Parish (CHRP) program, and was a parish sponsor for incoming Catholics through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program. For several years I was an assistant leader for Boy Scout Troop 850 and helped coach grade school girls’ sports.
I’m retired from the commercial insurance industry, and have time to commit to important causes – especially La Salle. I’m also involved in St. I’s St. Vincent de Paul Society to provide spiritual and short-term financial support for neighbors in need.
