More about Maria Hawk
What attracted Maria Hawk to Resurrection College Prep High School?

In her own words:  “I became aware of this opening through an acquaintance who coaches at Resurrection.  She had much praise for Resurrection and told me that the climate of the school ‘is like nothing else you have ever seen.’

The PRESident's Blog - Our New Blog

Good afternoon and welcome to this new Blog.  Inspired by the faculty at Resurrection and how they continually add more and more electronic skills and tools to their repertoire, I have accepted the challenge to expand the timeliness and openness of my communications with a blog.  I also hope that this blog will be a vehicle to recognize and celebrate the individuals who make up the constellation of Resurrection College Prep High School.

As we initiate this blog on March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation, we would like to honor every woman who is a part of Resurrection College Prep.  Today is special as the Church celebrates the amazing moment in time when God asked a young woman, Mary, to take on a special role in the history of the world.  This was the moment all of creation stood breathless, waiting in anticipation.   Would Mary say "yes" to God and become the instrument to give life and birth to His son, our redeemer, Jesus? And to each of you our Resurrection Women - faculty, staff, students, alumnae, sponsors, moms, grandmothers and friends - Thank You for the awesome way you say "Yes" to God's daily call to "make a difference" in the world around you and for the way you "let God be born" again in your lives.

In Charity and Truth,

Sr. Donna Marie
