Sister Myra Rodgers, CDP, Named Interim President of Sacred Heart
We are delighted to announce Sister Myra Rodgers, CDP has been named as our Interim President. Previously, Sister Myra served as Administrator of Providence House, also in Kingston, as well as Director of Mission Effectiveness for the Sisters of Divine Providence.
Sister Myra has been a board member of Sacred Heart School since 2012. Before coming to the Kingston area, Sister Myra’s previous ministries include teaching in numerous Catholic schools in Pittsburgh, PA, and serving with La Roche College as a member of the board of trustees, director of campus ministry, and adjunct instructor of religious studies. In addition, she served as General Superior of the Sisters of Divine Providence, leading the process of unifying the congregation’s three German provinces into one and the American provinces and the region of Puerto Rico into one.
“During the past four years, Sister Myra has been committed to collaboration with the board and the administration, as well as with the faculty and staff of Sacred Heart. Through presentations and many meetings, she has sought to deepen their understanding of the school's mission and history, as well as to assure the ongoing commitment of the Sisters of Divine Providence to the future of Sacred Heart School,” said Sister Mary Francis Fletcher, Provincial of the Sisters of Divine Providence throughout the U.S. and Caribbean.
“I am honored to have been selected to lead Sacred Heart during this important time,” said Sister Myra. “I look forward to guiding our community during this transition, and to building on the wonderful foundation of excellent education, meaningful service, and unique opportunities for our students.”
The school’s board of directors will begin a search for a permanent replacement later this year.
