The Rev. Mario Prietto, S.J., pastor of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church, announced Wednesday the appointment of Sister Judy Flahavan as principal of Notre Dame School, effective Jan. 2, 2013.

Flahavan, a member of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, brings decades of distinguished administrative experience to her new position.

Most recently, Flahavan spent 14 years at Nativity Catholic School in South Los Angeles, where her leadership resulted in a distinguished academic program and strong enrollment.

Flahavan, a native of San Francisco, entered the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur and began her teaching career at Notre Dame School in Santa Barbara in 1964. Her return to Notre Dame School follows a distinguished career including leadership at St. Columbkille School, Ascension Catholic School and Nativity School, all in Los Angeles.

As a leader in Catholic education in the Los Angeles Archdiocese, Flahavan has worked tirelessly to provide an opportunity for students to fulfill their dreams and become productive members of society through education.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
