Weekly Update 3/5/17

Dear Sacred Heart Parents and Guardians,

I am writing you today to share some fantastic news. After a national search, we are very excited to announce that Mr. Robert Yevich will be our new principal for 2017-2018 school year. Mr. Yevich is currently the principal of Nativity Catholic School in Brandon, where he has served with distinction for the past two years. A lifelong resident of Pinellas County and graduate of Transfiguration Catholic School and St. Petersburg Catholic High School, Mr. Yevich stated in his interview that, I want to continue my vocation in the community I call home."

Mr. Yevich holds degrees from the University of South Florida and the University of Notre Dame. He has been a driving force in our Diocese as a member of several key educational committees. Most importantly, Mr. Yevich leads with faith and zeal in all areas of Catholic education.

Our faculty and staff are meeting Mr. Yevich today. We will be having an initial meeting with partners in the very near future. And so, on behalf of the Office of Catholic Schools and our partners at Notre Dame ACE Academies, please join me in welcoming Mr. Robert Yevich to the Sacred Heart community!

Sincerely, 
Christopher L. Pastura
Superintendent of Catholic Schools and Centers
Diocese of St. Petersburg
