Rev. Robert Wood, pastor, is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Corky McMullen as the new principal of St. Philip Neri Catholic School. McMullen most recently served as head basketball coach and teacher at Midwest City High School.
“Corky’s experience at both the collegiate and high school levels will be a great benefit to our school. He is, undoubtedly, committed to Catholic education and will be a tremendous asset for our teachers, for our students’ families and for the mission of our school,” stated Father Wood.
McMullen, a devout and practicing Catholic, holds a Bachelor of Arts in Education from Houghton University in Houghton, NY. McMullen worked and coached for twelve years at the collegiate level prior to moving to his wife’s home state of Oklahoma. His experience includes programs at Rochester Institute of Technology, Hofstra University, Rutgers University, and Houghton University.
“I would like to thank Father Wood, Mrs. Schuler (Archdiocesan Director of Catholic Education), and the search committee for selecting me to serve as principal at St. Philip Neri Catholic School. It’s no coincidence that this opportunity was presented to me at this time. Over the past several months, there has been a stirring in my heart to serve our Lord, His Church, and my family in a more intentional way. I am both grateful and honored to serve God, our parish, and the teachers and students at St. Philip Neri. Our school is part of a greater mission for the parish to assist families in forming their children to know, love, and serve Christ. I am excited to be a small part of the spiritual and academic growth of our students,” McMullen said.
