Little Flower principal made an impact

November 18, 2011

The obituary (CR, Nov. 10) for Sister Francine McDermott failed to mention that she was the principal of Shrine of the Little Flower School in Baltimore, nor does it acknowledge the love and care with which she carried out that service. As a parent of children at Little Flower during her “reign” as principal, I was always aware that she held on to what she believed was the right choice for the school and its students, even when she met with opposition.

More importantly, Sister Francine made it a point to actually know the students and what their talents and their needs were. My children were blessed to attend that school while she was principal. I was disappointed that she found it necessary to move on before all my children finished eighth grade, and the education and care that they received there without her administration were sadly impacted.
