Future Principal of St. Bernard School Announced

In a letter dated March 15th sent to parents and students of St. Bernard School, Fr. Chris Forler wrote:

I would like to announce with joy and thanksgiving that Mr. Matthew K. Moore has accepted the position of principal of Saint Bernard Catholic School effective June 1, 2013.  A search committee (consisting of current and past Saint Bernard school board members alongside myself) selected Mr. Moore from a strong pool of candidates.  These candidates were provided to us from the Diocese of Evansville Catholic Schools Office.  Mr. Moore will be spending time at the school this spring preparing for the transition.  I encourage you to give him a warm welcome and a helping hand.

Mr. Matthew Moore

Mr. Matthew Moore

Mr. Moore received his degrees in elementary education and administration from Ball State University.  He taught 4th and 5th grades at public schools in Brownsburg, IN and Evansville, IN.  He was named the Brownsburg Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year in 2008.  He has also served as a People to People student ambassador, leading young people on trips to Australia, England and France.  He has also coached middle school and high school soccer and tennis.

Matt and his wife Marci currently reside in Evansville and are members of Christ the King parish.  He is a Mass Lector and is a Christ the King middle school youth group leader.

First and foremost, the search committee was looking for a faithful leader with a passion for Catholic Education.  With the assistance of God’s grace, I believe we have found the right person to lead our wonderful school.

I want to thank Mrs. Guth for her faithful and dedicated leadership for the past six years and for giving us the time to find a very worthy replacement.  Please pray for her, Mr. Moore, and Saint Bernard Catholic School.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Christopher Forler, Pastor
