Gwendolyn P. Byrd, executive director for Catholic Education and superintendent of the Archdiocese of Mobile, will receive the 2019 Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award from the National Catholic Educational Association for dedication and commitment to excellence in Catholic education.
Ms. Byrd was chosen from more than 150,000 teachers and administrators, as well as diocesan leaders and organizations dedicated to the nation’s Catholic schools. Ms. Byrd will be recognized during the annual NCEA 2019 Convention & Expo that will take place April 23 – 25 in Chicago. The annual award honors those whose ministry is Catholic school education and who have demonstrated a strong Catholic educational philosophy as well as exceptional efforts, dedication and achievements.
“The LLP award is a celebration of all that is good in Catholic schools. Our awardees are those individuals whose dedication, commitment, enthusiasm and care help to build dynamic communities where students are challenged and inspired to explore, to enjoy and to reach their potential as young people of faith and endless possibilities,” said Dr. Barbara McGraw Edmondson, NCEA Chief Leadership and Program Officer.
One comment from the nomination packet describes Ms. Byrd as “… truly a servant leader, sharing her wisdom and guiding others through the process of arriving at decisions that are both merciful and just.”
NCEA’s Convention & Expo is the largest private-education association gathering in the world.
The annual convention draws thousands of members and participants from Catholic school communities.
