Interim president to stay on at Res
By MARIO LEKOVIC
Just a few months after taking on the interim president position at Resurrection Prep High School, Sister Donna Marie Wolowicki and the Sisters of Resurrection announced Tuesday, Oct. 1, that she would stay on full-time.
Sister Wolowicki replaced Dr. Lynne Saccaro, who left in the summer to take care of an ill relative.
“I think I entered it with an open mind that it would be a possibility to stay,” said Sister Wolowicki. “I wanted to make sure I would be able to utilize the same skills and experiences in education.”
“My congregation felt that it was a good fit,” said Sister Wolowicki. “I was really extremely impressed with the faculty and staff and the girls at the high school.”
The congregation and the school board are still in search of a new principal. Kathy Rzany is the interim principal, but it’s unclear if she will stay said Kathleen Heneghan, communications coordinator for the school.
“She’s certainly qualified,” Heneghan said. If she wants to, she can throw her name in the hat.”
However, Sister Wolowicki will not be able to tackle the dual role like her predecessor.
“She doesn’t have an education background,” said Heneghan. “You need a type-70 endorsement by Illinois as an educator to take on a principal role.”
Sister Wolowicki served as Executive Vice President/CEO of Resurrection Medical Center for 22 years and holds an M.B.A from North Park University.
“My congregation felt that it was a good fit,” said Sister Wolowicki. “I was really extremely impressed with the faculty and staff and the girls at the high school. It’s a real honor to be able to stay.”
