River Forest, IL (April 14, 2015) Trinity High School is excited to announce that they have hired Noreen A. Powers, Ed.D. to be the new Principal after the retirement of current Principal, Dr. Antonia C. Bouillette in June.
Dr. Powers is a graduate of DePaul University with a Doctorate and Master of Arts in Education and has her State of Illinois Administrative Licensure. In addition, Dr. Powers has seventeen years of experience teaching in the Education Department at the University level and four years as an administrator for the Archdiocese of Chicago. As a successful educator and administrator, Trinity is confident that Dr. Powers’ collaborative leadership style, commitment to improving the lives of young women through education and her deep sense of mission and commitment to Catholic education will be valuable assets to Trinity High School. Dr. Bouillette, current Principal of Trinity High School, informed students and staff in January that she had made the exciting, yet difficult, decision to retire at the end of the academic calendar year. Dr. Bouillette has served in Catholic education for 36 years, 7 of them will have been at Trinity, where she says she “saved the best for last.” Dr. Bouillette has made a strong and positive impact on Trinity High School and it will carry on as has the work of her predecessors. Significant accomplishments of her tenure include the opening of the Health & Fitness Center, and a five phase technology program, resulting in a student BYOD (bring your own device) program. June 30, 2015 will be her last day at Trinity. Trinity High School is a Catholic college-preparatory high school for young women. Founded and sponsored by the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, Trinity has graduated close to 15,000 women since its inception in 1918. In 1994 Trinity became an International Baccalaureate World School.
