Posted on: December 3, 2013 10:00 am

The Sisters of Notre Dame and the Board of Directors of Julie Learning Center (JLC) announce the appointment of Mary Hedger as the next Executive Director of Julie Learning Center in Park Hills, KY. The appointment is effective January 1, 2014.

The search for a new Director was necessitated by the retirement of Sister Mary Patrycia Sweeney, SND who has been Director since 2007.
In September 2013, the JLC Board of Directors formed a Search Committee, which resulted in a recommendation that Mary Hedger be appointed Executive Director. The recommendation was accepted and confirmed by the Sisters of Notre Dame.

Mary Hedger has been a teacher and administrator in Catholic schools and most recently served as Principal of Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Cincinnati. Prior to this she served for 17 years as an elementary school teacher in schools administered by the Sisters of Notre Dame. Ms. Hedger has her Masters of Education from Northern Kentucky University.

Mary Hedger is committed to bring her gifts and experience to serve the community of Julie Learning Center, an educational facility which nurtures children and promotes their learning and development during early childhood. This mission is carried out in conformity with the educational tradition of the Sisters of Notre Dame. The educational principles operative in every educational facility of the Sisters of Notre Dame emphasize the centrality of a good and provident God, the human dignity of each person as an image of God, the educator as a Gospel witness, and an integrated education for transformation.
