San Diego, CA — Dr. Julie Cantillon, associate director of schools from the Diocese of San Diego, CA, will receive the 2018 Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award from the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) for dedication and commitment to excellence.
Dr. Julie Cantillon was chosen from more than 150,000 teachers and administrators, as well as diocesan leaders and organizations dedicated to the nation’s Catholic schools. Dr. Cantillon will be recognized during the annual NCEA 2018 Convention & Expo that will take place April 3 – 5 in Cincinnati, OH. The annual award honors those whose ministry is Catholic school education and who have demonstrated a strong Catholic educational philosophy as well as exceptional ability, dedication and results.
“It takes dedicated people in the schools, the dioceses, the parishes and the communities to carry out the mission of faith formation in Catholic schools. They are the living messengers of God’s purpose from generation to generation,” said Barbara McGraw Edmondson, Ed.D., NCEA chief leadership and program officer
“It is rewarding and challenging to build a shared vision for professional learning alongside principal and teacher leaders in our diocese. We are planning, designing, and implementing professional learning time that is focused on collaboration while incorporating reseach-based instructional strategies,” said Dr. Cantillon.
