Board of Directors
The Board of Directors are responsible for formulating policy consistent with the mission and vision of Presentation High School, fiduciary oversight, long-term sustainability and strategic planning, and legal compliance.
As a Board, we believe in Pres' vision of empowering young women to become fearless and faithful leaders. We are committed to protecting all students – past, present, and future. We stand by the commitments made in our community letter announcing the external investigation results of past reports of sexual abuse and misconduct.

From the Board Chair
September 1, 2020
Dear Presentation Community,
I am honored to serve as the new Chair of Presentation High School’s Board of Directors, and look forward to helping heal, unite, and grow this incredible community. As an alumna I have firsthand experience of how exceptional this place can be. With that being said, the Sisters have entrusted us with this important work, and I am looking forward to getting started.
This past month we have spent time together as a board for the first time to pray together, deepen our understanding of the Presentation charism, and discuss our immediate next steps and priorities for the year.
Although many of us previously served as Regents together, we have made new commitments and are excited to chart a course forward for Pres. For that reason our immediate priorities include:
Recruitment and Diversification of the Board
Create and launch a robust member recruitment process
Ensure our board better represents our diverse community to bring new voices and new ideas
Solidifying Existing and Forming New Sub-Committees
Develop and adapt board committees and structures to address current and future school needs
Add community members and experts to committees as needed
Long-term Sustainability and Strategic Planning
Rigorous review of systemic policies and practices to ensure the safety of all students
Build a multi-year strategic plan for the future of Pres together with our community
The school has undergone a tremendous amount of change in the past two years, and together with Holly and the Pres leadership team, we are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students and that any past mistakes are not repeated.
Nano Nagle, our foundress, said, “If I could be of any service in saving souls in any part of the globe, I would willingly do all in my power.” We honor her spirit and are here to serve and lead, and build upon the foundation of the great work that has been started. We look forward to working in partnership with you as we continue this important mission.
