This month we are shining our Staff Spotlight on Mrs. Mary Kathryn Whittle. Mrs. Whittle has been on staff at Mt. Salus on and off for the past few years. Mrs .Whittle will be joining our team full-time in the 2019-2020 school year in an Administrative role as the MSCS Dean of Students. Having previously taught and coached girls basketball at Mt. Salus before taking a leave of absence to pursue a MA in Marriage and Family Therapy and Counseling from RTS Jackson, returning to MSCS “feels like coming home.”
As a Mt. Salus alum herself, Mrs. Whittle says that MSCS has always felt like home to her. She chose to return to Mt. Salus as a staff member because she believes in the vision and mission of the school and wants to impact the next generation of students for Christ.
Mrs. Whittle enjoys interacting with students and teachers and looking for ways to better serve and grow the school. When she is not engaging in her counseling duties, Mrs. Whittle serves as Alumni coordinator and plans various events for our students and families. She sees this as an opportunity to reach out to the Mt. Salus alumni to help keep them connected and plugged into the life of our school.
In her new role as Dean of Students, Mrs. Whittle hopes to be a resource for students and families at Mt. Salus. “I want to display the love of Christ while coming alongside my Mt. Salus family to assist and encourage them in all areas of life. I hope to continue to help to get our Mt. Salus students involved in service in our community. Additionally, I hope to help the school to continue to grow and excel in providing quality Christ centered education.”
