The principal search committee and I are very excited to share with you that we have selected and hired a new principal for Saint Juliana School, Mrs. Marjorie Marshall! Mrs. Marshall comes to us highly recommended from Saint Cyprian School, where she has served as principal for the past four years. Please read a letter from Mrs. Marshall:
Mrs. Marshall is an energetic and dynamic leader who has a passion for Catholic education and the formation of all people who walk through the doors of a school. Saint Cyprian has benefitted tremendously from her leadership, and our search committee has no doubt that Saint Juliana will benefit from Mrs. Marshall as well.
As I have mentioned previously, our school is in a strong position, thanks to our current principal, Mrs. Katrina McDermott. Our curriculum and technology has advanced at all levels; morale and harmony among faculty and students is high; and our students are well-prepared for high school and beyond. Recognition as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the Department of Education is confirmation of our vitality. There is a strong foundation here at Saint Juliana School—a huge opportunity for Mrs. Marshall to take us to the next level of excellence.
The purpose of our parish thus is simple: Experience Jesus. Whether you are at Mass on Sunday, in the gym for the Lion King Jr. performance, or at a meeting in the Ministry Center, we want you to experience Jesus. Because when you experience Jesus you become the best version of yourself. Everything we do at Saint Juliana is to foster the experience of Jesus. Our school is no different. I am thrilled with the opportunity to work with Mrs. Marshall in helping our school to experience Jesus.
Thank you to Mr. Todd Steffen and the members of our search committee: Jeanne Anderson, John Clesen, Patty Collins, Una Durkan, Janie Lidgus, Joan Lynch, Laura Lyons, Eileen Mitchell, Mike O'Connor, Anita Slaboch, Don Sondermann, and Dan Tully. They gathered and analyzed data on the needs of our school and the qualities of our new principal, vetted candidates, conducted the interviews, and more. We are blessed to have had their expertise and dedication. Without them we could not have attracted such a talented and highly sought-after individual in Mrs. Marshall to be our new principal.
And thank you, Jesus, for blessing our community. We love you and ask that you watch over our school. Bless our students, families, staff, Saint Cyprian, and Mrs. Marshall. May we all experience you. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
