Catholic Schools Changes


More changes announced this month for Memphis Catholic Schools.

Jim Pohlman, the principal of Memphis Catholic High School, is leaving there to become superintendent of Catholic Schools in Tulsa, Okla.

His announcement follows that of Dr. Mary McDonald, director of the school system, who is leaving the post to write and work as a consultant on Catholic education.

Both have been change agents in Catholic schools.

Here’s our cover story from the weekly last year on the transformation under Pohlman’s watch at Catholic High. It’s also a story we won a third place Green Eyeshade Award (non daily business reporting) for recently in the 11-state region that includes Tennessee.
