Ms. O’Leary Wins SU Community Service Award

Congratulations to Principal O’Leary for being named a 2018 Seattle University Community Service Awardee.  President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., the Seattle University Alumni Association and the Alumni Board of Governors recognized Ms. O’Leary as “one of the finest educators and school leaders whose talent and dedication rises to the top. ‘Bernadette is a woman for others with a clear commitment to social justice,’ says Katrina Freeburg, a former colleague. O’Leary models this to her students through her volunteerism and personal attention to students and families, while she engages her students in service in the community. Her greatest legacy is her leadership in raising funds for St. George Catholic School’s gym, known as the Miracle Gym. O’Leary is respected for her integrity, kindness and compassion.”
