Father William De Salvo, the pastor of St. Isaac Jogues in Hinsdale and the dean of the South DuPage Deanery of the Diocese of Joliet, recently commented about Carol Burlinski, who started her job as principal of St. Isaac Jogues School in July and was named in February as the 2014-2015 State of Illinois High School Principal of the Year. She will travel to Washington, D.C., in the fall to accept the award.
Father De Salvo said: “Along with the entire Saint Isaac Jogues Parish Community, I congratulate Carol Burlinski on having been selected as the 2014-2015 State of Illinois High School Principal of the Year. Saint Isaac Jogues School is fortunate and blessed to have such a fine and dedicated educator to head our day school, building on the foundation laid by Mr. Richard Cronquist, who, in June of 2014, retired as principal after 20 years of dedicated service to Saint Isaac Jogues School.Carol’s enthusiasm and commitment to our Catholic faith is as strong as her drive for educational excellence. Under her leadership, we will continue to offer a first rate Catholic education in our school. She understands the purpose of a Catholic School… to offer education with a difference. And, of course, the difference is Jesus Christ!”
