“We are thrilled to have Mrs. Esparza arrive at such an exciting time,” said Saint Mary’s Principal, Brandon J. Hess. “She will join us next month as we begin work on our school’s new Strategic Plan,” he continued. “In addition to her leadership experience in academic instruction, the Selection Committee was impressed with her prior experience in spearheading service opportunities and student leadership initiatives; areas that are critical in delivering on our mission.”

In her own words, Mrs. Esparza is committed to the creation of “vibrant, attractive, and effective learning environments deeply rooted in Catholic teachings for all the faculty, staff, and students.” Her start date will be July 15, 2022.
