Saying she is “excited to be part of such a vibrant parish and school,” Mary Jo Warthen is looking forward to her first year as principal of St. Mark School in Catonsville.
Ms. Warthen most recently served as principal of Holy Family School in Randallstown for four years and is a former principal of Our Lady of the Rosary High School in Fells Point.
She was the vice principal for academic affairs at Mount de Sales Academy in Catonsville and served in a variety of other positions in the school over 18 years. She also worked as a provider of a medical transcription service.
“My goal this year will be to increase awareness of the Catholic identity and educational excellence for which St. Mark has been known,” said Ms. Warthen, a St. Mark parishioner.
Ms. Warthen holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Maryland Baltimore County and a master’s degree in administration and supervision from Loyola College in Maryland, Baltimore, through the Catholic school leadership program.
There are 581 students at St. Mark.
