We are grateful to Loyola University for convening the Catholic School Vision 2020 Leadership Development meetings to forward the vision of a cohesive and effective system of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Nsukka, Nigeria. Gratitude goes to Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Bishop Francis Okobo, Fr. Michael Garanzini, S.J., and the Loyola University Center for Catholic School Effectiveness, School of Education, and to Sr. Mary Paul McCaughey, O.P. and the Office of Catholic Schools for their assistance in shaping the plan for change. Our gratitude extends to the Catholic schools and parishes of the Archdiocese of Chicago, the Archdiocesan Principals Association, the Sisters of St. Joseph, the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters of St. Agnes and the members of the Committee of Interests who have shared their talent and skill with Nsukka Catholic school leaders and educators. The delegation represents the Diocesan Education Commission and the Diocesan Education Committee who have worked tirelessly to shape a vision for change for the children and youth of Nigeria. Nno! Welcome!
