Resignation of Holy Family Cathedral School Principal, Mrs. Leslie Southerland,
I wish to officially announce an ongoing change in leadership at our school. After seven years as principal of HFCS, Mrs. Southerland has asked to step back into a teaching position.
As the only child of an aging parent, and with the addition of three grandchildren in the last four years, she is seeking less professional responsibility, and more time to spend with her family. Mrs. Southerland will continue in her current position through the 2018-2019 school year. If you have heard anything contrary to this, please ignore such rumors. Our search committee will be working to find a suitable administrator who would take over after this school year, that is, after May 2019.
As we make this transition, we will continue to build on the foundation established over the last eleven years; a path which has seen our school grow and expand into a community in the classical style, with a strong focus on the arts and a commitment to Truth and Beauty. In our principal search, we will be exploring closer ties with Catholic Classical Education, and we look forward to continuing to provide a quality, Catholic Education to a diverse population of students.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Jovita C. Okonkwo
