Anne Ceasar, principal of the elementary and middle school campuses at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School (MCPS), was recently named the school’s new president in an announcement by MCPS School Board President Brett Wilkinson.
Ceasar was unanimously nominated by the Board and was approved by Most Reverend Oscar H. Lipscomb, Archbishop of Mobile.
“I’m honored to be in this position,” said Ceasar. “My relationship with Montgomery Catholic began as a teacher at Our Lady Queen of Mercy, then as a parent with my three children. I have served as a member of the school board and then as president of the school board.
“Being a part of opening the Middle School in 2004 and working with the tremendous faculty at St. Bede this year, I am humbled to be a part of our great school. I’m extremely honored to be able to take the next step with such a wonderful group of talented students, devoted faculty, and dedicated parents.
“It is not about the person, it’s about the institution and carrying out the legacy of the Sisters of Loretto, Fr. Pat Delahunty, Dr. Tom Doyle, Sr. Martha Belke, and Mr. Faustin Weber. I relish the tradition and embrace the growth that lies ahead for our school,” said Ceasar. The first task for Ceasar as president of MCPS will be to hire her replacement as principal for the Middle School.
Gwen Byrd, superintendent of education for the Archdiocese of Mobile, expressed delight with Ceasar’s appointment.
“Anne is a deeply-rooted spiritual woman who is truly following her call to serve. She is a collaborative person with a vision who knows how to work with others to carry it out. Anne will continue leading our Catholic community into the future,” said Byrd.
Ceasar and her husband, Rod, have been married for 35 years and are active members of Church of the Holy Spirit in Montgomery. Their three children, Leah, Tony, and Rachel, are all graduates of Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School.
