ORANGE — Mrs. Denise Willingham is Principal at St. Mary Catholic School. She is also one of the finest Math teachers around. She is so full of vigor and vitality. It comes in very handy for the school. Besides those two hats, she is an awesome leader and disciplinarian. Most of her time is dedicated to the school community but still makes time to be a mother, daughter and wife. She leads the school each morning with prayers and allegiance to the United States and Texas. She is a role model for the students as well as the staff and families. She is not afraid to do whatever it takes to enhance the spirituality, learning and beauty of the school. Every decision she makes prayerfully and for the good of the school. This is demonstrated in the picture of her weed eating the ditches to keep the schools appearance pristine. Under her leadership, the school has never looked better. Hats off to Mrs. Willingham!
