Welcome Mrs. Heffner

Epiphany Cathedral Catholic School Welcomes New Principal

Mrs. Mary Caren “M.C.” Heffner

 

Epiphany Cathedral Catholic School will begin the 2017-2018 school year on August 10th with a new principal.  Mrs. Mary Caren “M.C.” Heffner was selected after a nationwide search and interview process with a dedicated Search Committee consisting of representatives from diocesan, parish, and school leadership.

 Mrs. Heffner is a veteran educator with over 15 years of experience in Catholic and public schools in Ohio, California, and since 2003 in Florida.  She has a Masters degree in Education in Curriculum and Instruction and an Education Specialists degree in Education Leadership.  She has taught 3rd through 9th graders.

 “We are incredibly excited and blessed to share the good news that Mrs. Heffner will be the principal,” said Fr. Jack Costello, Rector of Epiphany Cathedral Parish and School.  “She brings a vision of collaboration and development of common interests to advocate for the best education for her students.  She will find opportunities for our students to strive to be even better than they have in the past.”

 “I am extremely grateful of God’s blessings and am excited to lead the amazing faculty and staff at Epiphany Cathedral School, continuing the programs that go above and beyond in educating the whole child,” said Heffner.  “Epiphany offers families and students the amazing gift of a Catholic, faith-filled education and I am excited to share this treasure with all of those who want a true Catholic education.”

 Epiphany Cathedral School, serving students in Preschool (VPK) through grade eight, recognizes that parochial school can be costly and therefore has instituted a “Fair Share” tuition program.  The “Fair Share” tuition program utilizes a number of financial assistance opportunities, which include government funding, scholarship funds and private angel donations that ensure every child can afford a Catholic education.   

 With the arrival of Mrs. Heffner to the Epiphany Community, the school will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of good work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in Catholic education.

Welcome Mrs. Heffner

Dear Epiphany Cathedral School Community:

 

            We are incredibly excited and happy to share the good news of introducing our new Principal for Epiphany Cathedral School.  This good news is the result of  a nationwide search and the dedication of our Search Committee consisting of representation from diocesan, parish, and school groups.

            Mrs. Mary Caren “M.C.” Heffner is a veteran educator with over 15 years of experience in Catholic and public schools in Ohio, California, and since 2003 in Florida.  She brings a vision of collaboration and development of common interests to advocate for the best education for her students.  She will find opportunities for our students to strive to be even better than they have been in the past.  She has a Masters degree in Education in Curriculum and Instruction and an Education Specialists degree in Education Leadership.  She has taught 3rd graders through 9th graders.

            Mrs. Heffner balances her involvement in educational pursuits with her vocation as a wife to Chris her husband and a mother to their two children, Luke and Emily.  As a Florida transplant, like so many of us, she and her family enjoy Florida’s natural attractions including the water, fishing, and the beaches.  She and her family are active members of St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish in Pt. Charlotte at the present time.  She has volunteered for Vacation Bible School, the Choir, Emmaus, and has volunteered as a Faith Formation teacher.  Her vocation as an education leader is rooted in her Catholic Faith.

             As we welcome Mrs. Mary Caren Heffner to the Epiphany Community, we will continue to build upon and refine our proven foundation of   good work, honored traditions, and continued excellence in Catholic education.  We know she will bring energy and enthusiasm to our school where opportunities abound.

             Blessing to all of you as we enjoy the remaining weeks of summer.
