FORT WAYNE — Jim Huth, a graduate of Bishop Luers High School, was recently named the new principal of the Fort Wayne high school. The announcement was made in a statement issued the week of July 24 by Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades.

“I am very grateful that Jim Huth, assistant principal at Bishop Luers High School, has accepted the appointment as the new principal. Jim brings many strengths to this leadership role,” the bishop said. “Besides his expertise and competency in secondary education, Jim has a great commitment to Bishop Luers High School and a strong dedication and zeal for the mission of Catholic education. He possesses a great rapport with the faculty, staff, and students, as well as with parents, alumni and friends of the Bishop Luers community. I look forward to working with Jim in the years ahead to promote and serve this wonderful high school of our diocese.”

Huth, Bishop Luers Class of 1981, has been the assistant principal since 2014 under former principal Tiffany Albertson. Albertson was principal from 2007-17 and recently accepted a position at Bishop Dwenger High School.

“I am thrilled and feel remarkably blessed for the opportunity to lead Bishop Luers High School and the families we serve,” Huth said. “I look forward to continuing to work with the faculty and students at Bishop Luers and to continuing our mission to educate the whole child, spiritually, academically and socially while serving God and others.”

Before Huth was vice principal at Bishop Luers, he was the school’s athletic director from 2012-14. From 2007-12, he was the inaugural leader of Imagine Master Academy and Imagine School, located on Broadway in Fort Wayne. He served as assistant principal of Columbia City High School in Columbia City from 1999-2007 and taught earth science, integrated science and advanced topic research from 1988-99, also at Columbia City.

Huth holds a master of secondary administration and supervision degree from Indiana University. He also has a bachelor of science in secondary education from IU. He brings expertise in school performance improvement, professional learning, community development and the ability to work with stakeholders in challenging situations.

A member of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, Huth serves on the board of the Fort Wayne Sport Club Youth Board. He is a parishioner of St. Mary Mother of God Church in Fort Wayne.
