Message from the new Principal, Dr. Marsha Wharton
Dear Parents, Teachers, and St. Edward Community,
I am pleased to announce that Dr. Marsha Wharton has accepted the Principal’s position at St. Edwards. Dr. Wharton brings many years of elementary school leadership experience as well as strategic development experience. I am confident that each of you will also be equally pleased to work with Dr. Wharton
Additionally, I am equally pleased to announce that Jennie Guinn will be promoted to the permanent position of Assistant Principal.
In my earlier communications to you I informed you of the establishment of a Selection Committee and the development of a fair and transparent interview and selection process. The Selection Committee worked very hard and carefully examined every candidate and recommended several as finalists. The Selection Committee and myself carefully interviewed each finalist. From our interview process the Selection Committee made their recommendation to me. I made the final decision regarding who would be our principal.
This entire process involved much hard work and much prayer. I am thankful to the efforts of the Selection Committee and all staff members and teachers that assisted with showing off our school. I also want to express my deepest gratitude to Luis Buentello, parishioner and President of Beacon Associates LLC, who has graciously offered so much of his time, energy, and expertize in facilitating this entire process for us.
With sincere gratitude to all,
Fr. Mark Nolte
St. Edward Church and School
