Following extensive review and evaluation of several qualified candidates, Bishop James V. Johnston, Jr., and Fr. Don Farnan, are pleased to announce that Karen Hopson, Ed.D., has accepted the role of principal at St. Charles Borromeo Academy. Ms. Hopson has worked in Catholic education for 20 years and has served as Interim Principal at St. Charles Borromeo Academy since last May.
Ms. Hopson is an experienced Catholic educator and says she is “dedicated to instilling the truth, beauty and goodness of the Catholic faith while guiding students to academic excellence.” She has worked with grades Kindergarten through 12th in three different regions of the Archdiocese of Kansas City Kansas prior to coming to St. Charles Borromeo Academy, most recently as principal of Holy Cross Catholic School in Overland Park, Kansas and prior to that, principal of Bishop Ward High School in Kansas City, Kansas.
Ms. Hopson feels she has bonded with the community of St. Charles since arriving last Spring and is eager to continue to instill the strong sense of cooperation and family that exists among the educators and scholars.
Please congratulate Ms. Hopson on this exciting news and join us in praying for her success.
