Dear Notre Dame High School Family and Friends,
After serving Notre Dame High School since 2009, Brett Lowart has announced that he will be retiring as president of the school effective June 30, 2020.
Here is Brett's message to the Notre Dame community.
"I will fondly remember with great pride and gratitude the work and progress we have accomplished together over the past eleven years. I will always treasure the many friendships, memories, and Holy Cross spirit we have shared along the way. I have been privileged to interact with so many dedicated faculty and staff, as well as students, parents, and alumni. It has been an honor to represent and promote our school, and it has been my joy to be a part of the Notre Dame family. It is my hope that a new leader will be selected as my successor to become the third President in school history who will continue our zeal for the Holy Cross mission, who will embrace the school family, and who will have the skill, vision, and experience to successfully oversee the next chapter of Notre Dame’s growth. You have my prayers and best wishes as you continue the invaluable Notre Dame mission of educating hearts and minds. Go Knights!"
We wish Brett great success in the next stage of his career and join him in his expressions of pride for Notre Dame. We are grateful for his service as we have accomplished so much together. Brett’s active and dedicated service as well as his leadership and collaboration have played a significant role in Notre Dame’s spiritual, academic, and athletic growth. During his tenure, Brett oversaw the construction of the Rawlinson Aquatics Center, Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, and Donahue Fitness Center, the renovation of the Fritz B. Burns Gymnasium, and various other campus improvements, including a new parking structure currently under construction. The school has reached new heights in academic success, college admissions, curriculum growth, extracurricular opportunities, and innovation in educational technology. Most importantly, Brett has emphasized the spiritual life and Holy Cross mission of Notre Dame by working to educate the hearts and minds of our students. With all of this, you could indeed say that Brett has won over our hearts and minds during his years of service to Notre Dame.
The Board of Directors is extremely proud of Notre Dame’s faculty, staff, students, parents, and alumni. With the foundation that they and Brett have provided, Notre Dame is well-positioned for continued success. We are looking forward to our next chapter as we take Notre Dame toward a very bright future.
Justin Rawlins ‘91
