Alumni Association to Treat Withrow Retirees

Christy McTigue Backley
by Christy Backley ’66

As part of Withrow’s Centennial Celebration during the 2018-19 school year, we’re planning a new twist on the annual retiree luncheon, and we’d like your input to help us with details.

New Withrow Leaders

The start of any school year always finds new faces roaming the halls of Withrow. Rarely, though, would one expect to witness a complete turn-over in critical leadership roles. It certainly had never happened in Withrow’s 98 year history. That is, not until the doors opened on August 16th to welcome over 1,200 students. The new Withrow leadership team of Principal John Corey, photo at left; Assistant Principals Dwayne DuBois, photo at right, Danielle Battle, and Joseph Porter; and Athletic Director Jonas Smith came together in late July and have not missed a beat.
