For nearly three decades, Mrs. Nancy Cullinan Nasko has served students, families and staff of St. Pius V School. Mrs. Nasko has cared for us, prayed for us, cried with us, cheered for us and loved each and every one of us with all her heart. Her work here, first as a teacher and now as principal, has shaped St. Pius V School into a top-notch institution drawing students from all over. She deserves more gratitude than we could ever give her, and we are proud to announce that her work has been recognized.
On October 25th, 2013, the National Association of Elementary School Principals will present Mrs. Nasko with their highest honor, Distinguished Principal Award in Washington, DC. Only 61 principals in the country were chosen to receive this award and of those, just four are Catholic school principals. That’s right: Mrs. Nasko is one of the top four Catholic elementary school principals in the entire country!
If you know Mrs. Nasko, you know that no one is more deserving of this honor. She is a credit to our school, our city, and now our entire country. More than that, she is a credit to our faith, spreading love, charity and kindness wherever she goes. Her educational philosophy—borrowed from St. Francis of Assisi —is posted on her office door: “Preach the gospel at all times. When necessary, use words.” If anyone has ever lived this philosophy, it is Nancy Cullinan Nasko. Congratulations, Mrs. Nasko.
We love you!
