Lead. Learn. Proclaim.

Four educational leaders in Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of St. Louis will be honored this year with a Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award for dedication and commitment to excellence. 

The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) will present these awards at a special reception and dinner at the annual convention to be hosted here in St. Louis at America’s Center, April 18-20.

We are proud to recognize the following educators:

  • Kathleen Hertlein, Theology Teacher and Academic Dean at St. Francis Borgia Regional High School
  • The Saint Louis University High School Campus Ministry Team
  • Reverend Ralph A. Siefert, S.M ., President of Chaminade College Preparatory High School
  • Kathleen Stinehart, Teacher at Ursuline Academy

These men and women were chosen from more than 150,000 teachers and administrators, as well as diocesan leaders and organizations who have demonstrated a strong Catholic educational philosophy, as well as exceptional ability, dedication and results.

“It takes dedicated people in the schools, the dioceses, the parishes and the communities to carry out the mission of faith formation in Catholic schools. They are the living messengers of God’s purpose from generation to generation,” said Jim Pavlacka, NCEA Director of Leadership Development.

The staff of the Catholic Education Office has been planning for this event for almost two years, and we are happy to report that registration is strong! We are proud of our history, and excited to share it, along with our plans for the future.
