Trinity High School has hired Noreen Powers, Ed.D., to take over as the River Forest school’s new principal following the retirement of current Principal Antonia Bouillette this June.
Powers is a graduate of DePaul University with a doctorate and M.A. in Education. She has 17 years’ experience teaching at the university level and four years as an administrator for the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Bouillette informed students and staff in January that she would retire at the end of the academic calendar year. She has been involved in Catholic education for 36 years, the last seven at Trinity. “I saved the best for last,” she said.
Her accomplishments include the opening of the Health & Fitness Center, and a five-phase technology program, including the student BYOD (bring your own device) program. Her last day at Trinity will be June 30.
