Maureen McCall-Assistant Administrator

I think almost everyone here at St. Michael School knows who I am. For those of you who are new, “WELCOME”. My name is Mrs. Maureen McCall (Mo).  I have been a staff member of this beautiful school family for almost 27 years. My husband Al was in the U.S. Navy for twenty one years. We were lucky to be stationed in Italy for a two year tour. We now know why this is where God chose to build his beautiful church. I have a wonderful family who my life revolves around.  Ann/Joe David/Mandy who have blessed us with four wonderful grandchildren Hannae, Matdi, Ashlyn and Nolan. We love taking family vacations, spending time at the cabin, and just being together. I love my job as assistant administrator.  I am here for your children at all times. Please feel free to contact me with questions/concerns. (
