Holy Family Assistant Principal Melissa Livermore was awarded the Distinguished Lasallian Educator for the Christian Brothers Midwest District. Distinguished Lasallian Educators (DLE) were honored during the opening session of the 48th annual Huether Lasallian Conference on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The DLEs represent the Districts of Eastern North America, Francophone Canada, Midwest, and San Francisco New Orleans. Recipients were selected by their ministries and recognized for their exceptional work in touching the hearts and minds of their students, often leaving a lasting impression that makes a difference in the world.
Melissa Livermore began her career at Holy Family Catholic High School in 2001 and quickly embraced the Lasallian mission when Holy Family joined the Lasallian community in 2004. She completed the Lasallian Social Justice Institute and quickly applied those principles inside and outside her classroom, offering generous opportunities for students to receive additional help and creating service opportunities, which included initiating international service trips to Ethiopian twinned schools.
In her current role as assistant principal for academic affairs, her leadership and zeal for relationship-building were critical components in successfully offering online learning for the final 2019-2020 term and in-person learning for the entire 2020-2021 school year. Her current work focuses on overseeing the academic needs of all students, a role she readily embraces and works diligently in to ensure all students are challenged and supported during their Holy Family journey.
