He informed the Helias administration on Monday and the rest of the staff Tuesday of his decision. Aur said he talked to the bishop on Monday before making the announcement.

Aur said he will finish out the school year and will return to Memphis, Tenn., where he’s accepted a job as principal for one of nine inner-city Catholic schools called the Jubilee Schools.

He spent four years at the Jubilee Schools before moving to Jefferson City to become president of Helias in 2006.

Aur planned to release a statement today to include how the school will fill his position.

“I want to make sure our ducks are in a row,” the president noted, before making the announcement.

Helias is a Catholic high school enrolling approximately 770 students from grades 9-12. It opened its doors with 467 students in 1956 as Helias High School. Under Aur’s administration, it changed its name to Helias Catholic High School in 2010.
