Congratulations to Cor Jesu Alumna Karen Calcaterra ’94 for being named the 2021 High School Principal of the Year by the St. Louis Association of Secondary School Principals (SASSP). Karen is principal at Lafayette High School in the Rockwood School District.
We honor in a very special way the alumnae who have passed on before us and left a special mark on Cor Jesu Academy. Fond memories echo in our hearts as we remember these women and ask God to keep them forever close to His Most Sacred Heart.
Maggie was recently awarded the Fr. Jack McGrath, S.M. Award for Research in Catholic Intellectual Traditions at the University of Dayton.
Taylor Woods, a 2007 Cor Jesu graduate, received the Beagle Memorial Fund Award for Research from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
Though the ones you love are far from you, the Heart of Jesus is ever near.
- Blessed Clelia Merloni
