Jane German began working at Loretto Academy during the 2003-2004 academic year. She ended up as principal of Loretto's Elementary School. She administered the co-ed part of the campus. According to an article by Kim Klein, Jane loved to dress up for Halloween. Here's a quote from that article, " I hope I encourage the children to give theiritime, energy, and ideas to service learning projects, reach out to help others, reflect on their experiences, and begin to ask questions about the injustices they experience."

March is Women's History Month in the USA annually. I salute the faithful service of Jane german to our community.
