Teachers honored for service in Catholic education

Educators make great sacrifices to offer students faith, academic excellence

Countless young lives have been transformed through the dedicated efforts of Catholic educators, who make great personal sacrifices to teach in Catholic Schools, Betsy Boyle, superintendent of Catholic Schools said during the Catholic Educators Banquet, Feb. 2.

The annual banquet honors Catholic School teachers who work for less than their public School counterparts to help shape young lives through faith formation, academic excellence and discipline, according to Boyle.

During the banquet, two educators were recognized for 35 years of dedicated service: Joan Sheehan, principal of Our Lady of Lourdes in Denver, and Father Dennis Ryan, pastor and religion teacher at Nativity of Our Lord Parish in Broomfield.

Thirty year awards were presented to Don McMaster, principal of St. Mary School in Littleton, and Frances Adams, a teacher at Sts. Peter and Paul in Wheatridge.

Susan Murphy, associate superintendent of Catholic Schools, was honored for 20 years of service. Other award recipients included:
