Father Sicard has been a part of the college’s administration for the past 14 years, serving as Dean of Residence Life, Executive Vice President, and Treasurer. In these roles, Father Sicard acted as the President’s Chief of Staff, and provided oversight for PC’s general counsel to the divisions of athletics, marketing, mission and ministry, student affairs, human resources, and public safety. Father Sicard’s tenure as PC’s president will begin on July 1, 2020.
