Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy is pleased to announce the appointment of Jon Osman as the school’s Chief Operations Officer and Chief Financial Officer. Osman is returning to the school after eight years and his return coincides with a period of rapid expansion for the Academy, which recently broke ground on a new high school in Milwaukee’s historic Bronzeville neighborhood. The school also has recently hired Marcus Robinson as the institution’s first CEO and Nikiya Dodd as Director of Development.
“We are thrilled to welcome Jon back to our school,” said Marcus Robinson, CEO of Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy. “His experience and expertise will be invaluable as we continue to expand and provide a high-quality education to our scholars. We are excited to have him on board as part of our leadership team.”
Osman brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the position, having served as Chief Operations Officer for Seton Catholic Schools and Chief Financial Officer for Milwaukee College Prep. In his new role, he will be responsible for finance, accounting, school operations, facilities, food services, supply chain, government funding, and contract management. Osman, who earned his Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and Business Education from the University of Wyoming, will use his background in business to apply a strategic approach to support the school’s educational and operational goals.
“I am excited to return to Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy,” said Osman. “I have always been committed to the school and Dr. Howard Fuller’s mission of providing a high-quality education to students in Milwaukee. I am eager to be a part of the leadership team and to contribute to the school’s continued growth and success.”
In July of this year, Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy launched its Commit to the Future capital campaign, which aims to raise $25 million for the construction of a new high school and renovation and conversion of the existing high school into a feeder middle school. The school has raised $19.5 million and plans to begin construction of the new high school are currently underway in Milwaukee’s Bronzeville neighborhood.
