New Principal for Our Lady of Fatima School


Sr. Carol Shively, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, is pleased to announce the successful hiring of a new principal for Our Lady of Fatima School as Monroe native Dr. Carynn Wiggins will fill the role beginning July 1, 2013.  “We are blessed to have an individual with this talent level committed to serving the wonderful students and parents of Our Lady of Fatima School,” comments Sr. Carol.  “Everyone associated with the school is excited to welcome Dr. Wiggins and we look forward to her leadership in the coming school year.”

A Neville product, Dr. Wiggins received her undergraduate degrees in Early Childhood Education from ULM, before attending Louisiana Tech for her post graduate work and eventual Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction.  The final eleven years of her career has been spent as the Director/Principal at A. E. Phillips Lab School in Ruston before retiring in May of last year.  She is thrilled at the prospect of ending her short retirement and taking the Principal’s position at Our Lady of Fatima.  “I’m ready to going back to being with children and excited at the opportunities for meaningful educational ministry.  There is a certain satisfaction to knowing that these young people will succeed because of what we can bring into their lives.”

Bishop Michael G. Duca is also excited about this positive addition to the diocesan school system.  “Our overall goal remains quality,” commented Bishop Duca.  “Our educational program at Our Lady of Fatima is unique and successful, and I feel more than confident that Dr. Wiggins will only increase our ability to positively affect the lives of young people and their families.”
