Alderman Bob Donovan will present a Common Council commendatory resolution recognizing 2013 Catholic Schools Week (January 27 – February 2, 2013) during a news event that included the Most Reverend Jerome E. Listecki, Archbishop of Milwaukee, and Dr. Kathleen Cepelka, Superintendent of Catholic Schools. Alderman Michael J. Murphy will also take part in the event, and it is possible other Council members will also participate.
“Milwaukee’s outstanding Catholic schools have been a part of the fabric of life in our city for well over a century, educating and nurturing countless individuals who became leaders in academia, business, priesthood/clergy, sports, medicine, science, music and the arts, law, politics and public service, and many other professions,” said Alderman Donovan, who attended Catholic grade school and high school in Milwaukee. “And today the city’s Catholic schools continue to educate a diverse student population that includes the children of new immigrants, as well as students from all races and socio-economic backgrounds.”
“It is truly an honor for me to help recognize our excellent Catholic schools during Catholic Schools Week,” he said.
