Holy Family Announces Interim Administrative Team at St. Columbkille Elementary for 2023-2024

Following the recent resignation of St. Columbkille Principal Catherine Stewart, OP, Ed.D., for personal reasons, Holy Family Catholic Schools has announced an interim school leadership plan for the upcoming 2023-2024 school year.

Acknowledging the peak of the 23-24 hiring session for school administrators has passed, Holy Family has decided to postpone the hiring process for the upcoming school year and has instead established an interim administrative transition team, consisting of St. Columbkille student and staff support specialist, Meredith Willman, and current chief administrator, Phil Bormann. Willman and Bormann will work together as the school’s co-administrators during the upcoming school year with plans to conduct the full search process at the start of the 24-25 hiring season.

Bormann earned his Specialist in Education degree with superintendent licensure and his master’s in educational leadership from Drake University. He has a background in elementary education and eight years of experience in serving as a building principal before assuming his current role as the system’s chief administrator. During this interim period, Bormann will continue to serve the Holy Family community as chief administrator, officing jointly between St. Columbkille Elementary and Holy Family’s Central Campus.

Willman holds a Master of Science in Education Leadership from Creighton University, with a certificate in Catholic School Leadership. She has eleven years of teaching experience and has also served as a Response to Intervention Coordinator for St. Peter Catholic School in Wisconsin. Willman currently serves as part of St. Columbkille’s student and staff support team.
