Kessenich Honored By Diocese For Excellence In Education
(Le Mars) -- A Gehlen Catholic faculty member was honored this morning by the Sioux City Diocese. Carol Kessenich of Le Mars was informed that she is one of four recipients of the Excellence in Education Honorees. Dan Ryan of the Sioux City Diocese explains why Kessenich was selected for the honor.
Kessenich was surprised by the recognition. Her family was also in attendance, and by her side when the announcement was made. Kessenich expresses her feelings about the award and gives credit to her mother.
Kessenich has been a teacher at Gehlen Catholic for 17 years. Prior to Gehlen, she also taught at Remsen St. Mary's. She teaches both junior high religion and mathematics. Kessenich is the seventh Gehlen faculty member to be honored with the Excellence in Education award by the Sioux City Diocese. The last Gehlen faculty member to be given the honor was the late Steven Shea, for which the Gehlen gymnasium is being named for this year.
