My Town: Diocese of Grand Rapids hires school recruiters

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.— The Diocese of Grand Rapids has hired two more people to ramp up enrollment for its Catholic schools.

Dan Plachta will serve as an admissions enrollment field consultant, guiding the diocese’s 29 schools in outreach and recruitment. While supporting current students, the diocese plans to focus on traditionally underserved groups who could take advantage of school tuition assistance, which is quadrupling to $1,000,000.

Plachta is an alumnus of Blessed Sacrament School (now All Saints Academy) and Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids.

“As a graduate of Catholic schools in the diocese, Dan brings a personal passion for the importance of Catholic education in West Michigan,” said David Faber, superintendent of Catholic schools.

Annalise Kransz will serve as a marketing communications coordinator for the Diocese of Grand Rapids.  The former TV news producer will work with the schools to implement a K-12 marketing plan, mentor school marketing committees and staff, assist with Diocese media and plan events.  Kransz attended St. Patrick Elementary School and St. Patrick High School.

The Diocese of Grand Rapids serves more than 182,000 Catholics and 82 parishes as well as 25 elementary and four high schools in My Towns Ada, Comstock Park, Coopersville, East Grand Rapids, Spring Lake, Grand Rapids Central, Grand Rapids North, Grand Rapids South, Grand Rapids West, Greenville, Holland, Muskegon, Plainfield, Rockford and Wyoming.
