Best Wishes to Our Faculty Family That Are Leaving Fisher Catholic High School! We would like to express our sincere appreciation for the many years of service and sacrifice from our wonderful Art teacher, Mrs. Karen Parrish and spectacular Spanish teacher, Teresa Zarate.
Mrs. Parrish, your continued efforts in helping your students receive recognition for their artistic talents in various art shows and exhibitions including: Lancaster Art Walk, Congressional Art Competition, Governor's Art Show, and even artwork that is now displayed in downtown Lancaster.
Senora Zarate, your integration of the Spanish culture in our school, with Fiestas, field trips and travel to foreign countries have enabled your students to embrace the world around them.
Both teachers throughout their time have integrated service and stewardship by organizing various donation drives that helped communities in need.
Throughout your years here at Fisher Catholic, you have touched so many lives with your passion for your subject. Many have gone on to follow in your footsteps as educators in your field.
From the students, faculty, and community of William V. Fisher Catholic High School past and present... We thank you.
We would also like to wish the best of luck to our Chemistry teacher, Mr. Bart Krieger and our Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Jamie Kirby. Both faculty members will be continuing to work in the Catholic Diocese. We thank them both for their many years of valued education given here at Fisher Catholic. Best wishes in all you do.
May God watch over you and be your guide in your strive for Catholic education.
