Sister Patricia Anne Bossle will step down as Seton Keough High School’s president June 31, 2010.
The Daughter of Charity was named interim president in November 2004 and received her official appointment by the school’s board of trustees and the Archdiocese of Baltimore in November 2005.
According to a school spokeswoman, Sister Patricia Anne was responsible for the “Women in Science” initiative at Seton Keough, raising the funds and overseeing a major renovation of a science wing and the addition of the new biomedical science and engineering curriculum this fall.
The school has started a nationwide search for her successor. Robert J. Curran, chair of the board of trustees, thanked Sister Patricia Anne for her years of service in a letter to the Seton Keough community.
“All who are involved with the school appreciate her tireless work on behalf of the students of Seton Keough,” Curran said. “I thank her for her dedication and efforts to make Seton Keough the excellent school that it is today.”
Curran’s letter said a new president is expected to be named by July 1, 2010.
Sister Patricia Anne was a member of Seton High School’s class of 1957.
