Patrick Crahan is making the transition to Ashland University after a successful career in public education as a teacher and principal, mostly in southwestern Ohio. Crahan was a principal in the West Clermont Local Schools for 16 years. In addition, he also taught at West Clermont, Indian Hill, Milford, Aurora and Hudson schools.

In his new role, Crahan will lead the professional development efforts out of the southwestern center located at the Great Oaks IRC in Cincinnati, Ohio. He will be taking over the reins following this month’s retirement of Jim Quatman.

Crahan has a bachelor’s degree from Ashland University, a master’s degree from Kent State University and post graduate work at Xavier University. He and his family live in Cincinnati. He can be reached at 800.670.0395.

Ashland University’s Professional Development Services is the largest provider of graduate credit workshop offerings in the state and served over 16,000 educators last year. These services are provided through the main campus, Columbus Center, Massillon Center, Elyria/Cleveland Center and the Southwest Center in Cincinnati.
