St. Mary Education Committee

The St. Mary Education Committee (SMEC) meets on a monthly basis to govern the operations and goals of the school system. Committee members are appointed by the Episcopal Vicar and work in conjunction with the System Director and the Superintendent of the Diocese of Owensboro to lead the school system. The goals of SMEC are to further the Church’s educational ministry, foster the mission of the school, provide direction and stability, to represent the stakeholders, and support the administration.
