In 2008, the Board of Trustees hired the school's first lay president, Dr. William Hambleton. President Hambleton and the Board worked to create a strategic plan to keep La Salle open amidst declining enrollment and a global recession. In 2010, the school's main campus moved to 215 East 6th Street and shares the building with St. George Ukrainian Catholic School. La Salle occupies the fourth and fifth floors and shares common spaces such as the cafeteria and gymnasium. At the same time, La Salle leased the old campus to a for-profit school. This plan has enabled the school to continue offering accessible educational opportunities to young men of mixed socioeconomic backgrounds. The Second Street Annex currently houses the offices of the President, Vice President, Development Director, and Alumni Director.

As popular activities that evade social restrictions, they often refer to topics that are inaccessible to serious public discussion. Gossip and joking often appear together: when we gossip we usually tell jokes and when we are joking we often gossip as well.”
