Mrs. Cathy McGill
Title-School Secretary/School Nurse
I love working at St. Edward School because….
every day offers a view of the past, the present and the future. It’s a living tapestry of life. Everyday is different, offering new challenges, laughter and yes sometimes tears. There is a tremendous sense of family, of coming together in happy times and sad times.
Outside interests (fun facts):
I come from a large family (8 children) so there is always somebody celebrating something. We now number 58 in the immediate family! I also love to read, and really enjoy creative writing. Look out you may end up in my story or poem some day! Love old movies, especially good cowboy films. I mean have you seen John Wayne in action? Be still my heart oh, oh I didn’t mean that! Still looking for Andy and Barney in Mayberry. .
Other involvement with the school:
Five of my siblings, my husband and our three children are St. Edward graduates. I was one of the founding members of SEPO. We ran fundraisers and dances and sold World’s Finest Chocolate by the carload. I was co-chair of the Anti-Crosstown committee from this area. We defeated it! Had that expressway been built there would not be a St. Edward Parish, as we know it, today. The cloverleaf combining the Edens, Crosstown and Kennedy would have destroyed this area. I wrote some terrific songs for our community “actions”… Oh the good old days.
