The Catholic Diocese of Salina is excited to announce Patricia (Patti) Park as principal of St. Mary’s Grade School in Ellis, Kansas. Patti has over 30 years of classroom experience as well as various leadership roles during that time. Patti has been very involved with her parish over the years, and is excited to become even more involved with the Diocese through this position. Patti said, “This change to a private school of my Catholic Faith will be an amazing opportunity to serve God through the education system”. Patti and her husband have four children and are parishioners of Immaculate Heart of Mary, in Hays.
Superintendent Andrews said “Patti is going to be a great addition to St. Mary’s and I am looking forward to working with her as she leads the school. Her experience in the classroom at multiple grade levels is going to be a great asset to our teachers and students.”
