Two Former Principals Join Community Catholic Center Staff

Community Catholic Center has hired Carol Meirose as the Director of Elementary Education and Becky Henle as the Director of Secondary Education.

Meirose recently retired as the principal of St. Agnes School and has worked in Catholic elementary education for most of her career.  She will assist CCC students enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grades.

Henle most recently served as the principal of Assumption High School. She will work with CCC students enrolled in grades 6-12 both in academic work as well as post-high school planning.

CCC Board Chair Chuck Willenbrink commented, “Community Catholic Center is fortunate to have two educators who are so well-respected joining our staff.”

In this academic year, 50 students are enrolled in CCC’s program – 40 elementary students and 10 high school students.  CCC students attend Notre Dame Academy, St. Leonard School, St. James School, and St. Anthony School in Clarksville on the elementary level.  Current CCC high school students attend Holy Cross High School, Trinity High School, and Presentation Academy.

Holiday Assistance for CCC Families

In this season of giving, many people look to assist families and children who are in need.  If a CCC family predicts  that it will have a hard time providing Christmas gifts and a meal for its children, we like to provide a helping hand.  CCC is blessed that organizations like St. Vincent de Paul and the LMPD have assisted in providing holiday meal opportunities.  CCC also has volunteers and donors who provide gift opportunities for children.

Many children have asked for books, sporting equipment, and clothing.   If you would like to join in helping a young child realize the joy of Christmas, please feel free to contact Heidi Imberi-Hamilton at 424.9398 to get more information.
