Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Catholic High School is proud to announce the 2017 winners of the Sister Paulette Williams Awards for Outstanding Service: Jean Adamian (Mathematics), Timothy Cook (Director of Bands), Maryangela Morgan (Counseling), Rose Shaia (English) and Dr. Lincoln Sigwald (English).

In 2016, the CCHS Foundation established the Sister Paulette Williams Awards to recognize members of the Charlotte Catholic faculty whose exceptional dedication, knowledge and commitment inspire students to learn. The awards are named in honor of Mercy Sister Paulette Williams, who played a key role in establishing the basis for Catholic education in Charlotte. She was a teacher at Charlotte Catholic for five years, assistant principal for two years, and principal for 20 years.

“Her leadership, dedication, guidance and vision built our school into what you recognize today – a community leader in academics, arts and athletics,” said Principal Kurt Telford.

“These faculty members deserve to be recognized for their outstanding service,” noted Sister Paulette, “and we are extremely pleased to do so.” She added, “We are a community of families, bound by faith, who stand by each other, look out for each other, and pray for each other. I am proud to be with all of you, to present these awards.”

Telford presented a $5,000 check to each of the winners, on behalf of the CCHS Foundation, during graduation ceremonies in June.
