West Catholic's President/CEO Cynthia Kneibel announced today that she plans to retire, effective January 20. In a note to members of the school community, Mrs. Kneibel shared, "For almost 20 years, I have had the privilege of working at West Catholic, first as a teacher, then the principal and now in my current role as president/CEO. It has been an incredible honor to serve this school and community; however, after much thought, consideration and prayer, I have decided that it is time for a new adventure... I will be retiring at the end of January 2023. It is time for me to join my husband in retirement and focus on my family."

West Catholic plans to begin searching for a new president/CEO immediately. More information regarding Mrs. Kneibel's retirement and the selection of her successor can be found at grwestcatholic.org/presidentceo.

Another successful All A's Walk is in the books! Our students crushed this year's goal, raising just under $80,000 (a new record!) for tuition assistance programs at West Catholic. As part of the celebration, students walked from the school to St. Ann's Home, praying for residents, holding up signs of encouragement and greeting those who came outside to say hello.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible, especially our donors and sponsors! For a list of 2021 All A's Walk sponsors, please visit grwestcatholic.org/walk-sponsors-2021.

Students - as a reward for your hard work to help us reach our fundraising goal, you have earned a day off of school on Monday, October 25! Enjoy your four-day weekend later this month (there is no school on Friday, October 22 for Diocesan PD)!
