Posted on 04/23/2021
Long-time Bishop Heelan English Teacher Mary Kay Augustine will receive an Excellence in Education Award at the Bishop’s Dinner for Catholic Schools Aug. 21. The '71 Heelan grad is in her 40th year of teaching at Heelan. 

“Having known Ms. Augustine since my days as a student, I can attest that she is committed to Catholic education,” said Heelan Chaplain Fr. Shane Deman in his letter of nomination. “I can also say that she sets high standards for her students, wanting them to perform at a high level of reading, writing and critical thinking.”

Added Carla Johnson, “While at Heelan she has been a mentor to a lot of teachers in the English Department, including myself." 


Augustine "has adapted to a variety of changes in education over a long and distinguished career,” said Heelan Principal Chris Bork in his nomination. "She does an excellent job of recognizing the ability of our students and coaching them to meet their potential while holding them to a high standard of achievement.” 

The Bishop's Dinner will be held as a virtual event for the second consecutive year. Last year it was streamed from Heelan's Fine Arts Auditorium.
