Debra Meyer-Myrum, principal of Holy Trinity Catholic School in Pierz, will receive the 2019 Lead, Learn, Proclaim Award from the National Catholic Educational Association for dedication and commitment to excellence in Catholic education.

The annual award honors those whose ministry is Catholic school education and who have demonstrated a strong Catholic educational philosophy as well as exceptional efforts, dedication and achievements. Meyer-Myrum was chosen from more than 150,000 teachers and administrators, as well as diocesan leaders and organizations dedicated to the nation's Catholic schools. She will be recognized during the NCEA 2019 Convention & Expo Tuesday, April 23 through April 25 in Chicago.

"The LLP award is a celebration of all that is good in Catholic schools," Barbara McGraw Edmondson, NCEA chief leadership and program officer, said in a news release. "Our awardees are those individuals whose dedication, commitment, enthusiasm and care help to build dynamic communities where students are challenged and inspired to explore, to enjoy and to reach their potential as young people of faith and endless possibilities."

One comment from Meyer-Myrum's nomination packet pointed to her dedication to her mission, reading: "Debra is a faith-filled person who connects with others, communicates clearly, and shares her love of God."

NCEA's Convention & Expo is the largest private-education association gathering in the world. The annual convention draws thousands of members and participants from Catholic school communities, including elementary and secondary school teachers and principals, religious education programs as well as diocesan offices, church pastors, superintendents and school board members. The convention is a forum to exchange ideas, hear about current research and data related to Catholic education and learn about new technology and resources.
