"The Lord is near to the brokenhearted." Psalms 34:18
It is with heavy, yet grateful, hearts that we share the news of Dr. Perry E. Sangalli's passing.
Dr. Sangalli, a 1976 St. X graduate, positively impacted thousands of students, alumni, parents and faculty, and led the school through the greatest period of academic, physical and spiritual growth in its 150+ year history.
During his tenure as head of school, Dr. Sangalli led initiatives that dramatically increased support for need-based financial aid and merit-based scholarships; expanded and enhanced academic and athletic facilities; and earned the school’s fourth designation as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
Having served as President since 2001, Dr. Sangalli demonstrated that one may be both a visionary and a pragmatist; a leader and a servant; proud and modest; fair and forgiving. We are broken-hearted for our loss, but grateful for the time that God granted us with our colleague and friend.
Even with his accomplishments as a visionary leader, Dr. Sangalli is even better known for his warmth, openness, and concern for each of God’s children.
We ask that you join us in prayer for God's grace for Dr. Sangalli, his father Eugene, brothers, Jamie and Bob, other family, and the entire St. X community.
Arrangements to celebrate his life are underway and will be announced when complete.
