Mrs. Price has served 28 of her 36 years as a teacher, Principal, and promoter of Catholic education.
Mrs. Price chaired the St. Mary Annual Catholic Appeal for 3 years, assisted with the CCD and Sacramental Programs at St. Joseph Parish in Tiffin, and was a guest columnist for the A-T. She organized 14 Physical Education Workshops under the title of “The Phys. Ed. Connection,” for the Toledo Diocese, and has presented at numerous local, state and national conventions. She was awarded 1993 Outstanding Teacher of the Year from the Society of Alumni and Friends, College of Education at Ohio University; and received the 1997-98 “Great Ideas Grand Award” from Today’s Catholic Teacher Magazine. She also served two 3-year terms on the North Central Electric Cooperative People Fund Board. After retiring as school principal, Mrs. Price decided to return to the Calvert Catholic Schools as Director of Marketing and use her talents to promote the great opportunities and accomplishments of the students and staff at CCS.
As Director of Institutional Advancement, Mrs. Price will promote the school through building relationships with the staff, the alumni, friends, Calvert families and the entire Tiffin Community. “Mrs. Price’s dedication and passion for Catholic education shine through in everything that she touches,” stated Mr. Kaucher.
