MADISON -- Sr. Kathleen Malone, OP, the president/principal of Edgewood Campus School (ECS), will retire at the end of the 2015 to 2016 school year.

Throughout her career, Sister Kathleen has taught every grade from one to eight. During her 35 years at ECS, she taught grades six, seven, and eight and served as principal/president twice, most recently since 2004.

Her accomplishments

Her skills in hiring and mentoring have provided a school community that lives Dominican values and provides an excellent education in a nurturing environment of love and acceptance.

She has supervised fundraising, building construction, renovation and maintenance projects.

Collaboration with the presidents of Edgewood High School and Edgewood College on Campus Master Planning with the neighborhood associations has been instrumental in the growth of the campus.

During her many years of service, Sister Kathleen shared her expertise on numerous boards and with many organizations. There were countless benefits to these institutions realized by her knowledge of education, budgets, management, and finance.

Her real service, however, lies in the impact she has had on countless students both in the USA and in Tanzania, Africa, where Edgewood Campus School helped the Sisters of St. Thérèse of Lisieux build a grade school that now educates over 700 students.
