Providence Catholic School, 1215 N St Mary's St, San Antonio, TX 78215, USA
Today is the anniversary of Sister Maureen Glahn, CDP. Sr. Maureen Glahn was the first principal of Providence High School, when it opened in 1951. She guided the academic and extracurricular life of the school until she died suddenly, after a brief illness on December 20, 1964.
Sister Maureen was noted for her insistence on high standards of excellence in all areas, which is still one of Providence Catholic School's core values today. She was pleased when students did well, not only for the school's good name but also for the young woman's growth. She would be very proud to celebrate 70 years of educating Providence women!
One of Sister Maureen's major goals was for the school to have its own gymnasium, so she began the "gym fund," which became the focus of major projects for years. She did not live to see the achievement of her dream, but she was very much present in spirit when the gym was dedicated in her memory on March 12, 1966. The gym has been named in her honor, along with the 1st floor hall, which reminds students and visitors of the rich history and legacy of the Sisters of Divine Providence of Texas. The Providence Alumnae Association has a membership level in her honor, as well.
Besides being home of Providence Athletics, Glahn Gymnasium is home to so many community events, masses, fine arts performances, pep rallies and more. Thank you Sr. Maureen for your vision and influence to create a space for all of us to gather in prayer, competition, and fun.
Providence Catholic School is committed to maintaining the standard of EXCELLENCE that Sr. Maureen Glahn, CDP set back in 1951.
