St. Mary's School
ALTON — St. Mary’s Catholic School Principal Judy Kulp has been selected by the Springfield Diocese as a candidate for the national honor of Principal of Distinction.
Each U.S. Catholic diocese will enter a candidate, creating a pool from which the national Principal of Distinction will be selected.
“Her hard work, dedication, and love of the children are exemplary,” said Father Jim Walther, St. Mary’s Church pastor. “I don’t know how she does it, but I’m sure glad she does. She makes our school a place where the children want to be, and a place that parents want their children to be.”
St. Mary’s school has two campuses, with the elementary at Third and Henry, adjacent to the church, and the Middle School at 1015 Milton Road, in the former St. Matthews building. Enrollment is 361 students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.
