Christ The Redeemer Catholic Schools’ (CTR) Superintendent Dr. Scott Morrison will soon be moving on.
After 10 years, he’ll be retiring from his position in June, with Andrea Holowka to replace him.
Morrison won’t be leaving education behind though, as he’s planning to stay busy with a few commitments.
“I’ve got a role lined up as executive director of a group called the Council of Catholic School Superintendents of Alberta, the CCSSA,” says Morrison.
“I consult with St. Mary’s University in Calgary, and I teach with both St. Mary’s University and the University of Calgary. That’s still only part-time, all of that work together, but that’s the start of it. Before that though, my wife is requiring a two-month overseas vacation, so that’s the first step.”
He’ll also be helping Holowka transition into her new role for a few weeks.
Morrison steered CTR through two major events which bookended his time with the division; the 2013 floods which began just after he took the role, and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Those 10 years saw tremendous growth for CTR within the Foothills alone, including establishing St. Francis of Assisi, new locations for St. Luke’s Outreach in both Okotoks and High River, and a new board office.
For Morrison, there’s one highlight that really sticks out.
“If I look over the last decade, the number one thing I’m proud of is that when you look at the assurance data, results, and satisfaction rates from parents, staff, and students, for the last decade and before it, we’re among the top performing school divisions in the province. Our students are satisfied, our parents are are satisfied, our staff are satisfied, and academically the results are excellent. That is the biggest thing I’m proud of.”
