Holy Trinity School Announces New Leader

LACONIA — Holy Trinity School has announced that Mary Jane Cooney will be the School's new principal.

Mrs. Cooney first became involved with Holy Trinity School in 2012, after moving to the area. She has acted as a volunteer, substitute teacher and as a grandparent, having a grandson in the HTS eighth grade class. As a graduate from Catholic school herself, and sending her children to Catholic School, Mrs. Cooney is committed to the values a Catholic education provides.

Realizing she has big shoes to fill, taking the reins from retired principal, Jack Fortier, Cooney brings her management and communication skills partnered with her respect for the Catholic Church and Catholic education. She realizes the partnerships between staff, family, and the community are the center of what makes Holy Trinity School so special. "It is my goal to work collaboratively with all of you, and I will work hard to earn your trust and respect," Cooney explained to school staff and families while introducing herself.

Her goal is to continue the positive culture and keep the strong connections to ensure the best education possible for all Holy Trinity School students. Cooney began her post on July 1 and is eagerly anticipating the start of the 2014-15 school year.
