“I am optimistic because this Board has enjoyed years of unwavering leadership from our Director, our Superintendents, Managers, Principals and Vice Principals. Additionally, we are privileged to have educators who continually demonstrate their commitment to living their faith, while embracing the knowledge to lead and engage our children in a faith-filled learning environment.” said Dall during his Inaugural address to the Board.
