CULLMAN – Cullman Mayor Woody Jacobs on Monday officially proclaimed the week of Jan. 27-Feb. 1, 2019, "Catholic Schools Week" in the city of Cullman.
On hand to accept the proclamation on behalf of Sacred Heart School were Shawna Norman and students MaKenzie Cruce and Anna Agnello.
The proclamation reads:
Whereas, the Catholic School System in the Diocese of Birmingham has been a consistent advocate of academic achievement by the young people of Sacred Heart School in Cullman for 141 years; and,
Whereas, the Catholic School System’s support of community and family through teaching and example have set the highest standards for emulation by those who reside in Sacred Heart Parish in Cullman, Alabama; and,
Whereas, Sacred Heart’s parish, school, and families work together to form a cornerstone of excellence in education in Cullman, and the primary purpose of the school continues to be to provide an instruction program with a Catholic Christian atmosphere of love and guidance; and,
Whereas, the strengthening and encouraging role that Sacred Heart School continues to play in the lives of its many students and their families here in Cullman is worthy of all respect and admiration; and,
Whereas, Catholic Schools Week, an annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States, starts on the last Sunday in January and runs all week and includes events that focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and on the contributions of Catholic education to our communities and our nation.
Now, therefore, I, Woody Jacobs, as Mayor of the City of Cullman and on behalf of the City Council and our citizens, do hereby proclaim the week of January 27-February 1, 2019, #CATHOLICSCHOOLSWEEK in the City of Cullman and urge all of our citizens to recognize the influence and impact Catholic education has on our society, and to celebrate the success of Sacred Heart School and its many contributions to our community.
