OLH Principal Named Grand Marshal of Patty’s Day Parade

HAMPTON BAYS: Sister Kathryn Schlueter, the principal at Our Lady of the Hamptons Regional Catholic School in Southampton, has been named the Grand Marshal for the 2013 St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Hampton Bays. This marks the first time in the parade’s history that a female has been named Grand Marshal.
“We’ve always wanted to choose a female Grand Marshal,” said Dennis O’Rourke, the president of the Michael Collins Division 11 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, who hosts of the parade. “Her name has come up every year as someone to be considered for Grand Marshal.”
O’Rourke emphasized Sister Kathy’s commitment to the community, far-reaching presence as an educator and Catholic faith as reasons for her selection. “She’s been the principal of OLH for over 20 years—the influence that she has had is tremendous.”
The 8th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade fundraiser will be held this Saturday, Aug. 25 at 6 p.m. at the Boardy Barn in Hampton Bays. The event will feature the annual parade Big Bucks Raffle, which comes with a Grand Prize of $10,000. Tickets are $100 each.
