LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Mathew P. George, an educator from St. Louis, Missouri, has been named the next principal at Lexington Catholic High School. George will replace Sally Stevens, who is retiring at the end of the current school year after 22 years in that position.
George has served as Assistant Principal at St. Dominic High School in O’Fallon, MO, a suburb of St. Louis, since 2014. He began his teaching career in 2002 at Notre Dame High School in St. Louis, where he served as a Journalism/Business teacher, a technology specialist, yearbook adviser, and Dean of Students. During that time, he earned a Masters in Teaching and an Educational Specialist degree from Lindenwood University. Prior to that, he worked in educational publishing before making the transition to the ministry of serving in Catholic education.
Dr. Steve Angelucci, president of Lexington Catholic, said George is a teacher at heart and it’s evident that he truly believes in faith-based education in a close-knit school community.
“Mathew exudes a confidence that we can create an environment of lifelong learners and empowered productive citizens in society,” said Angelucci. “He brings a new perspective and outlook to Lexington Catholic that will lead us into innovative, exciting directions, while maintaining a strong understanding and support of our long history as a premier Catholic, secondary academic institution.”
George said he is honored to serve as the next principal of Lexington Catholic High School.
“I look forward to working with the student body, faculty and staff, and the entire school community to continue to develop a strong academic and faith-based program to solidify Lexington Catholic High School’s position as the premier school in central Kentucky,” he noted.
“My family and I are excited to join such a warm and welcoming school community.”
George and his wife of 13 years, Rosmy, have a four-year-old son, Dominic.
He will assume his new role on July 1.
