LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Catholic Education Foundation of Louisville says its executive director is retiring in the summer.

Rosemary Bisig Smith announced Thursday that she will step down from the not-for-profit organization that raises money for Catholic education in the Louisville archdiocese.

Before taking the executive director job in 2004, Smith was the archdiocese’s director of stewardship and was also director of development at Assumption High School in the 1980s.

Smith will be replaced by Richard Lechleiter, a former chief financial officer at Kindred Healthcare. He retired in January.

The foundation supports Catholic education through grants for religious education and technology enhancements for parishes and schools. In 2013, grants totaled $2.1 million.
