Seton Catholic School’s Karen Alestock wins national NCEA award

Karen Alestock, principal of Seton Catholic School in Hudson, is a recipient of the LEAD. LEARN. PROCLAIM. Award for outstanding leaders in Catholic school education. She is one of only 13 honorees across the country and the only one from Ohio. Alestock also is one of only five principals nationally to receive the award this year.

“I am honored to accept the LEAD. LEARN. PROCLAIM. Award and am grateful to have the opportunity to positively impact the lives of so many students during my 35-year career in Catholic education. I am blessed to lead our Seton Catholic School Community with our dedicated staff, engaged and supportive families, and amazing students,” Alestock said.

The award was presented during a banquet April 18 at the National Catholic Educational Association’s convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. The award highlights the outstanding work of Catholic school educators in communities across the country. Thirteen Catholic school leaders, teachers, principals and presidents, pastors, diocesan superintendents, school boards and home school associations are among awardees entrusted with the faith formation in our communities of Catholic school education.

“NCEA commends the extraordinary efforts, contributions and achievements of these exceptional leaders in Catholic education,” said Lincoln Snyder, NCEA president/CEO. “They are recognized as ambassadors of faith formation and academic excellence imparting the fullness of the Church’s faith for all of us working in Catholic school education.”

NCEA’s 2022 convention is the largest private-education association gathering in the nation. The annual convention draws thousands of participants from Catholic school communities including elementary and secondary school teachers and principals, religious education programs as well as diocesan offices, church pastors, superintendents, school boards.
