Sister Jeanne Bessette Honored

bessette-webSister Jeanne Bessette, OSF, Ed.D., president of De Paul Cristo Rey High School in Cincinnati, has been recognized as a member of “The Women of Influence Award Class of 2016.”

The Women of Influence Award honors leading women in the Greater Cincinnati region who have helped shape the success of their organizations. These women have demonstrated exceptional leadership, dedication to their organizations  and have committed themselves to cultivating a thriving and progressive community.

The nomination for Sister Jeanne noted, “Since leading the opening of DePaul Cristo Rey High School in 2011, Sister Jeanne has never allowed it to stray from its mission to serve those economically-challenged families who want a strong college-prep academic program for their students but can’t afford other private schools.  The young people DPCR serves are from challenging circumstances and would not have their now-promising futures without this school. The quest to prepare Greater Cincinnati’s next generation of scholars, professionals and leaders continues under Sister Jeanne’s direction.”
