Seton Catholic Principal Not Returning


The Syracuse Diocese has notified the catholic school community that Kathleen Dwyer will not return to Seton Catholic Central.  The principal was put on administrative leave in December, 2010 when she acknowledged she had been arrested for shoplifting last April.  Dwyer said at the time, she had been caring for a friend dying of cancer, and while grocery shopping, she became distracted by a phone call and began to leave the store without paying for an item.  Dwyer says store personnel alerted her of 2 similar incidents in the same two week period.  The charges were dropped but the arrest photograph showed up on the website forum BC Voice.  Syracuse Diocese Superintendent of Schools, Christopher Mominey, sent a letter to the Catholic school community March 9.  He acknowledged Kathleen Dwyer’s 3 decades of service and for raising Seton’s academic reputation.  She was the principal at Seton Catholic Central for 25 years.  Dr. John Colligan will continue to serve as interim principal.  A search committee will begin looking for candidates to recommend for Seton principal.
