COVINGTON, Ky. - Mo Woltering, a Cincinnati native who most recently served several Catholic organizations in northern Virginia, has been named as the new headmaster of Covington Latin School .
Bishop Roger Foys of the Diocese of Covington made the appointment, noting in a release announcing it, Woltering’s “deep love of the faith and of the Church.”
In northern Virginia, Woltering, a graduate of Cincinnati’s St. Xavier High School, served as executive director of the Cardinal Newman Society, director of public policy for the American Life League and, most recently, academic dean and director of development for Holy Family Academy in Manassas, Va., according to a release issued by the school.
Woltering said Covington Latin School’s commitment to classical education held a great attraction for him.
“Classical education is about standing on the shoulders of giants. And from St. Augustine to Pope Benedict XVI, we have the greatest giants in history,” Woltering said in the release.
Founded in 1923, Covington Latin School recently completed a 41,000 square-foot addition and full renovation to its original 36,000 square-foot facility. The school is located at 21 E. 11th St. in Covington, Ky.
