Distinguished Principal Pat Brady Receives Additional Honor for Her Work

Pat Brady

Pat Brady, former principal of Saint Alban Roe Catholic School in Wildwood, and one of the 2008 National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) Distinguished Principals, is being honored again for her work.

The National Distinguished Principals (NDP) program Private School Selection Committee has selected Brady to represent private schools as one of the 2008 National Distinguished Principals.

Other honorees include representatives from public schools in each of the states, the District of Columbia, and the United States Departments of Defense and State schools. The U.S. Department of Education, in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), will announce the names of the individuals chosen to participate in this year's program in a national press release scheduled for this fall.

Ms. Brady will be honored at a special awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., in October 2008.

Although Brady has returned to her home Diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut, to begin work as principal of Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic School in Fairfield, Connecticut, this honor reflects her work in the Archdiocese of St. Louis, which joins in celebrating this additional distinction.
