Cathedral Honors Longtime Educators


As the school year comes to a close, we’d like to take time to recognize and honor our Cathedral educators for all they do. This year, more than any other, our educators went above and beyond. They had the tall task of adapting to new technologies, teaching students, connecting with them, motivating them, and helping them grow into the people we know they can be all while doing it virtually.

We’d especially like to honor four Cathedral educators who will be leaving us this summer after being part of the Cathedral family for 20+ years: Jean Kesterson, Charlene Witka, Duane Emery and Lance Rhodes.


These four educators have a combined 107 years of experience on the Hill. They have impacted the hearts and minds of untold students and families along the way. Please join us in thanking them for their service and, if you are able, make a gift in their honor by clicking on their names below. While making a gift, you will have the opportunity to leave a personal note of thanks. These gifts will go toward ensuring that students and families from all walks of life can continue to experience the many life-changing benefits of Cathedral.
