Father McCaslin honored by national Catholic school group
Father John McCaslin '85
The Rev. John McCaslin, a 1985 graduate of Scecina Memorial High School, will receive a national education award on March 29.
Father McCaslin will be given the “Lead. Learn. Proclaim. Award” from the National Catholic Educational Association during the NCEA’s annual conference in San Diego. The award honors “the outstanding work of Catholic school educators in communities across the country.”
Father McCaslin is being honored for his role in the reopening of St. Anthony Catholic School on the Westside of Indianapolis. The school had been operating as a charter school for five years. It’s now a Catholic school and is one of the Mother Theodore Catholic Academies.
The school has 220 students with a breakdown of 93 percent Hispanic, 5 percent Caucasian and 2 percent African-American. Ninety-nine percent qualify for free or reduced lunches.
Father McCaslin was nominated by Gina Fleming, Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
