Reeson’s Ramblings :: May 7, 2017
I have some news that I need to share with you. I am sad to announce that Mr. Jim Makey has decided, after much prayer and soul searching, to resign his position as Principal at the end of this school year. I have really enjoyed working with Mr. Makey. I have a great respect of how he has handled our staff, students and all the committees and activities that make our school so vibrant. We have such an awesome school thanks in no small part to his leadership and direction.
As a first time pastor with such a large grade school, he has helped me personally learn what a successful school should look like. Although we are sad to see Mr. Makey go, we are grateful for the time he spent here at St. Columbkille and wish him and his wife, Betty, all the best for their plans for the future and our prayers will be with them always.
The other side of this coin is that I am delighted to announce that Brandi Redburn has agreed to be the new Principal of St. Columbkille School. Over the past two school years, I have been so impressed by her skills and abilities, and I am confident that in her very capable hands, the transition will be seamless.
The students, parents and staff will have a dynamic leader who is 100% committed to the families of the school and our mission. I have no doubt that our school will continue to offer our students the very best Catholic education in the Archdiocese under the direction of Mrs. Redburn.
Jackie Buso has done a tremendous job as our parish Bulletin Editor and Athletics Administrator for the past five-years. Now with two children in Catholic High Schools, she has decided it is time to return to fulltime employment. She does more than most realize and is going to be greatly missed. She will continue on a part-time basis until her replacement is secured.
We are now considering comprehensive staffing needs for our parish and job description for the Bulletin Editor and Athletics Administrator is being adjusted. Employment opportunities at our parish will be made known and a search committee established soon. Watch the bulletin or our web site for more information.
