Dr. Cynthia R. Crabtree, current President of Sacred Heart Schools announced her retirement effective June 2020. For the last 16 years, Dr. Crabtree has embraced the legacy of the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville and put the success of the school community’s young people first.
As we celebrate Dr. Crabtree over the next year and honor her countless accomplishments, the members of the Board of Trustees will be prayerful and diligent in our work to find the next President of Sacred Heart Schools. The search for our next leader has already begun with the selection of a search committee and hiring of executive search firm Carney Sandoe & Associates to lead the process.
Sacred Heart Schools, a Catholic community rooted in the Ursuline tradition, is guided by the mission to inspire diverse learners to become globally minded, compassionate leaders. The next president will be an individual committed to the Ursuline Core Values of Community, Reverence, Service and Leadership and our vision to be an internationally recognized system of Catholic schools that inspires students, empowers faculty and transforms the world.
The search committee will be led by Charles Paradis, a member of the Board of Trustees, chair of the governance committee and V.P., Human Resources & Compliance at Bramco, Inc.
