A student rally at St. Stephen School was held recently to honor Donna Ende as she retires as principal of St. Stephen School. The students, parents, and staff at St. Stephen School are thanking Ende for 12 years of service as the school's beloved principal.
The St. Stephen School community said: "Ende brought many talents to the school as an excellent administrator, motivator, and communicator with all whom she met. However, most importantly she consistently exhibited a sincere love and concern for her students, always seeking to bring out the best in everyone.
"It is with sincere gratitude that the entire St. Stephen parish family says, 'Thank you and may God bless you, Mrs. Ende!'
Other gatherings are planned to provide friends the opportunity to wish her the best as she turns the page on this chapter of her life. Although she has decided to retire from this challenging position, she has indicated that she has always had a passion for education, and looks forward to whatever opportunities present themselves in the future.
