Calvert Hall College High School principal Louis Heidrick announced Jan. 4 he will retire at the end of the 2012-13 school year after 48 years at the Towson all-boys school.
Heidrick came to the school in 1965 and has served as principal since 2001. He is the first person to hold the position who is not a Christian Brother.
In his nearly 50 years of service to Calvert Hall, Heidrick has served as assistant principal for academic affairs, assistant principal for student affairs, a social studies teacher and department chairman and a moderator and coach of clubs and teams.
During his tenure as an administrator, enrollment has been stable; academic facilities have been enhanced; courses, programs and activities have been added; policies and procedures have been improved; technology available to teachers and students has been expanded; Lasallian formation, spiritual and service opportunities for students and staff have increased; and the school’s Middle States Accreditation was done.
Heidrick, who completed the Lasallian Leadership Institute and was named a Distinguished Lasallian Educator in 1990, has promoted the Lasallian philosophy and tradition
During the school’s commemoration of St. John Baptist de La Salle in 2009, Heidrick received the Letter of Affiliation for his commitment to Lasallian values, the Brothers of the Christian Schools’ highest honor.
An extensive search will be conducted to fill his position.
